The Pork Fat was created as a small wave design, but the side cut extends the rail line and gives it some extra holding power extending the range of this shape. It has a lower entry rocker with a slight kick in the last 6″ inches of the nose. The midrocker is pretty flat followed by a tail rocker that is fairly flat with kick in the last 8″. The bottom contours starts flat in the nose then runs into a deep single to draw the water into the hull and create speed and hold. This is followed by a medium depth double that draws the water throught the fins providing lift and maneverablit and finishes with a slight vee out the tail for rail to rail performance.

Swallow tail creates drive out of turns due to the fairly straight rail line. Similar in feel to a squash or rounded squash. The vee cut allows for a little resistance when initiating your turns but still maintains hold and control. Very popular in small wave and large wave guns.
Moderate exit rocker is a comfortable balance between drive and release. Suits the largest range of conditions and surfers.
Low mid rocker results in a board that carries speed, and has a stable consistent over all feel. Works well in weaker less powerful surf.
Low entry rocker creates a board that will provide speed and drive with minimal effort. Works best in knee to chest-high, less powerful surf.
Vee creates remarkable rail to rail performance. Helps compensate maneuverability for boards with a wider outline.
Medium Double concave directs water through the the tail of the board. This concave provides speed, lift and maneuverability. Performs in the broadest variety of conditions
Deep Single concave directs water under the hull. Provides speed, lift and maneuverability. Performs better in weak, less powerful surf.
Flat is generally used as the starting or ending point for all concaves. Flat is stable and fast without having much effect on performance but also has no draw backs.
