Please put me on the waiting list for a board !

I think my first day on snow will be jan 2.
The square nose theory is kind of like reverse swallowtail theory. Rather than removing material from the tail I added it to the nose.
The surface area differential from nose to tail is very similar to that of a swallowtail but the total surface area is greater.
I am not interested in flat boards. They have always felt dead to me, I really love camber outside the feet for bombing and rocker between so the board sits flat when unloaded making the nose higher than it would be if it were an all camber board.

You can see this effect really well in my youtube vids comparing the 2013 stuff to the 2012 .
Etm360 is my channel if you want to have a look.
