Just got the run of this thread...

super cool job man and some great videos to show your board off with!

I'm really intrigued by the hammerhead profile.. I've never seen it before, have you based this on something?

Keep going buddy, and add me to the list of people up for an ETM Custom!

And if I come out to Japan I'll try to find you (look for the ridiculous rooster tail?)

Ill be in nagano this year, mostly nozawa onsen I think. If anyone is in the area let me know and I'll put you on a board ;-)

The thought process behind the hammerhead shape came to me last year as I studied the behaviour of all the swallowtail and the birdman. I noticed how the wide nose of the birdman seemed "better" than the pointy nose of my swallowtail due to more surface area so i went one better with this design by maximising the surface area of the nose as much as possible.

When I drew the shape I started with the sidecut radius as usual and then flipped the radius template around which gave me the nose shape
