Should be good.
Not what I would have chosen colour wise so will be interested to watch the progress.

Enjoy Tardy. I reckon the inverse with mainly in white or light grey would also look good

Always good to follow a new board being born.

Woaaahhh - Tardy - that thing looks mad.
Yep - I agree man - sometimes there's no point trying to outthink Bert - he's done all the thinkin' for you.
I'm a big fan of not having to think too much about new boards (or anything really for that matter) - it ends up doin my head in. I hate fart-arsing about. Make yr decision and go for it.
Just trust in the big Burger and you'll be right.
Actually, you'll be more than alright, you'll be tappin' your heals like Fred Astaire for the next month when that bad boy arrives.
I can hear it now...

Superb board Tardy! But arent you afraid about the color heating up too much?

NO FEAR .


i have faith in sunova's breathing valve ...i keep my boards in the cover most of their life .
unless in the water .
but I won't be leaving it in the sun .that for sure ..the top has the big white strip and grip ,so if i do have to leave it on the beach it will be top up , wait till you see the next lot of picture ...she'll be cool .

Looks awesome Tardy, my custom Sunova Swiss Army Knife should arrive in Fremantle today and hopefully get my hands on it early next week.

8/3 x 31, 120 ltrs, full nose, dropped rails, swallow tail, double winger, in vapour lite construction, should be great in less than perfect conditions and turn on a sixpence. Worked with Marcus on the shape so getting excited now

Looks like the Sunova clone of the Smik hipster twin more or less! Really curious to see how she will perform....

looking forward to getting it ,glad i stuck to the 8,8 ,had a few trying days out in some big surf of late ..i don't want any smaller .
and looking forward to a bit of extra speed with this rocker line over the placid .
just waiting for Dylan to send me some more photos ...

oh... nice board Rossall, not quite as nice as mine but it will do too short for me .

because i surf with about 18 other prone surfers on a point break i need the length for snaking .. they love me .
