I have to admit, the unusual chine on the bottom caught my eye. It's apparent in both the factory photo and yours, and it encompasses the full outline. Also, very prominent vee running the entire length with dual concaves inside of the chined area. Is there some feedback or comments about the chine's performance features? It would be interesting to see a photo from the side of the board showing the rockerline, the rail shape, and the volume distribution.

how about a multi -chine ?

I think you have seen in part what you think you see, but the perimeter has some sanding on which show the carbon underlay, at the same position the concave start, and they are pretty deep , in comparison to some of my others.

The feedback I have on the boards character is very good, some of the details on this are not even on the site yet, a 2014 site is not up.

If I go to the Delta, Steve you will have to have session on it.

I will try to photo the parts you asked about, stay tuned to the same Bat Channel

Very nice looking board I like the outline. Wide point forward not too wide on the nose or tail.
I am curious about the bottom shape. Would you take some photos with a straight edge like these of a Quatro Pyramid. It would be interesting to see the comparison. Congrats!

The 3 rd pic Quatro down IS what part of it is like. The deep single concave on the Q is more. I have not looked at the rocker nose or tail.

I dont see anything that is radical, from the shaper its fairly classic shape.

I will photo when I get some time.

Double concaves throughout would make it more like the Thruster LS. The advantage of a single concave is you can increase overall rail rocker yet straighten out the center rocker with the single concave for a faster board. This is the current big trend in surfboards.
