New Hully Short Stuff

Here's a couple of new short guys that I've been working on for close to a year.
The Egg On Acid. A hyper short version of the Tri-Egg, it carries the classic soft egg rail on top of the hull,
with a kink in the template and tail rocker, along with a barreled V to give a solid pivot off of the tail.

This one is 5'11, 17" x 21 1/4" x 16 1/2". I've made them anywhere from 5'7 to 6'2, and it probably
can go a little bigger, as well.
       The other board is the VeeBee:
Obviously, a variant of the GeeBee. This one is 5'9, 18 1/8 x 21 x 17. The difference is in the tail: it stays wider in the back third, and corners into a narrower tail block, more like Velo, hence the name. Bottom-wise, it also goes into a firm Vee in the tail, with a rocker kink.

Otherwise, this board has the same rocker, bottom, and committed hull rail as the GeeBee.
On both these boards, I've opened up the fin options. Both can be ridden as single fins (of course),
but by using standard 2-plug FCS for the side boxes, two different fin setups can go down.
One would be the classic GeeBee/MP one-plus two setup:
This setup is the classic for more committed rail turns. A more tail-friendly option is this:
A two-plus one setup. Either way, both of these boards have a different feel. I dig 'em!
