A new much more refined take on a old concept (Mistral mid-90's) by F2: one board that changes shape using a removable tail http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FNrGsjg-zw Very Happy

Alternative would be to have interchangeable rails: you swap rails on the board and make it wide or narrow. Construction should be easier than the F2, you can just have a "core board" with square rails and provide a set of bolt on alternatives.

Cool idea! (Mistral Challenge Flex came out in late 80s; 1989 I believe.)

Interesting... but, what about that step ridge on the bottom on the wave board version when not using the wide tail? Seems it would be a very turbulent surface... Had a Challenge Flex way back- fun but heavy.

Perhaps the more practicable idea. A 90/105 liter fsw/crossover type board or 110/135 liter freeride? As a design study I love the F2, though. 85 liter wave to 106 liter freeride, complete with rocker change.
