This week has been about making tweaks to my standard designs. One of the designs in particular that I am infatuated with is my tribute to the 60's Vee Bottoms.
When I came up with the
DC Vee about 5 years ago, I was inspired by the work of
Bob McTavish, Midget Farrelly, Surfboards Hawaii and more recently
The Driftwood Caravan version features an updated low profile rocker, foiled
rails and less volume throughout the board.
I shape a finely foiled 50/50 rail with an apex that is more
defined than the originals. I pulled in the nose a tad and changed
the tail block to create a fun, functional, hip turning mid length that
works well in a wide variety of waves and conditions.
