This is my new personal Little Bastard. I made it a bit big, 6'3, to match the size of my beloved MP, so I can make a head-to-head comparison of the two.
Very MP-like, but it carries the Bad Acid bottom through the hull (you can just see the double concave in the pic below). Also, it has a taste of tail kick, coordinated with the front fins. Notice it's a widowmaker setup, 2+1, rather than the in-line 1+2 of the MP and GeeBee. Also, a new dedicated sidebite template, in Volan, made for me by Larry at Fibreglas Fin Co. One of the new PHd flex templates by Marlin at 101 in the middle. This is the hooky guy, the BJ/Foley, that really throws some good punch in the MP.

Brian and Johnny been thinkin about this for awhile.
8''4'' its like the one Brian and I did for Sacred Craft in SD, just a bit thicker for him.
Made to turn off that hip and trim up toward the front.
S-deck , not to much V so it wont track.
''Senior Johnny'' is back workin over at Mollusk in Venice , thats a good thing . Also my new neighbor .

Brian shaped this for me its a design Ive ridden since 1994, its like the boards Wayne Lynch , Nat and Ted Spencer rode in Evolution and the end of the film the Hot Generation. This is one of my favorite boards, it works in a lot of waves , points , beachbreaks, junksurf allaround user friendly hull.
The template has alot of curve and the rocker is relaxed just a bit in the right spot so its works really well backside.
Lots of foam on the S- deck, paddles well for an 8'4''.
The nose is slightly pulled and that curve in the back really helps the board go from rail to rail, also a rolled V right in front of the fin box , this board solves alot of problems with bigger hulls.
