Dave is at it again cooking up some new shapes and innovations for your enjoyment.

Straight out of the machine, the new Felix with shaped in tail pad, step deck and foot wells!
This is a 4’10 x 18 3/4 x 2 1/8 with 23.4 liters! that means if you are 70kg this is the board for you!

Dynocore™ Felix Tail performance shortboard

So Sometimes When Im Shaping or cutting things on my Beloved APS 3000 CNC, Things go wrong, Accidents happen. Concentration lapse or mechanical failures..
I hate wasting blanks, its my chosen art. So this one started out as a DM model it should have been 6’3 x 19 1/2 x 2 1/2..
Anyway it ended up a lot thinner after the first cut down the centre so , i paused the machine to make sure i wasnt going to cut off any important fixtures.. all good so i went what the $%^& just cut it and see what comes out. the blank ended up way too thin in the nose and tail and only 2″ thick in the middle..
i put aside for the day, i got what i needed to get done then went home with a mental image of what i had cut..
that night checked out surfermag Forum and had a look at the Tomo MPH. bingo i has an idea of what i could turn this blank into..
next morning i jumped in the bay and came out with this.. 5’8 x 19 1/2 x 2″… so its a low volume very high performance board. its ideal in waves with punch and high speed. i have lent it out to a few of my performance crew and have had nothing but praise and tough times trying to get it back.. claims like its the best board ever, and how the hell did i do those moves this morning etc..
so inspiration credit to Dan Tomo and cheers Stretch for the rail channels. oh and thanks to all those Maid Cafe’s in tokyo ive cruised past for the tail shape.. i call it the Felix after “Felix the Cat” come by and see if your lucky enough to try it out… Cheers Dave
