    Did you get the nose and tail on the CC the wrong way around Fazza?

        That makes more sense. Sounds like nice dims.
        The Unibrow has a narrower nose than the Alternator then!

          Interesting RE: Fazza's comment:
          "Today I surfed it (UB) on a small reef break hip to shoulder high (most of the waves were hip to just above high) and i was surprised as to how easily it caught waves"

          Interesting that it paddles so well when it's so narrow up front for its length. Must be hiding some foam under the lower chest.

          Fazza: - Do you have to pick your spot to paddle in on the wave like a more HP board or can you get up some speed like a dom? Was the reef you surfed the kind of wave you can get into easily regardless of the size of the waves.

          Any chance you have got any photos of the tail? really interested to see how refined it is in that last 6 inches.

          Cheers,

              The board definitely got some speed like a Dom and paddles into the wave easily. I didn't notice or even really think about where i was paddling into the wave from still trying to work out what i can do on it.

              Not the best but here is a photo of the tail which will give you some idea.

                  Damn thats some deep conk !! Can you see the Dominator heritage or is it way more refined that that? I read Chris say he thought this board may replace the Spit/Dom but I can't see it personally from what I have seen.

                    Wow no wonder its a speed demon, thanks for that, I think this could be my next FW, by the way how far does it continue up the board?

                      When I felt up a board you could definitely feel the chunk. I thought the Dom heritage was pretty clear when looking at one in person in terms of planshape. Obviously the bottom contours is another thing entirely.

                      I'm still waiting in delivery of a board I ordered late Nov or so. When I've bedded that down I suspect the Alt might be the very first Firewire I sell to fund a new Unibrow. Not that there's anything wrong with the Alt - it's still one of my best ever boards. But at the length I have it, it's just a tad over foamed for me - great for fatty days but otherwise unused. Some small adjustments to the quiver will likely render it surplus to needs. And if I find I miss it CBD is my friend.

                        Thanks Fazza,
                        Exactly what I was after! That tail looks sweet! Fits in perfectly between Dom and alt.

                        Drivey, fast, good paddler and goes well in a variety of conditions. The reports on the unibrow sound unreal!

                        i think my stealth is going up for sale to fund a 60 or 61 unibrow.
                        Thanks again!

                          The single concave basically starts from the front of the board and then goes into a double through the fins.

                              Sounds like the UB covers everything the JK handles and maybe better? Fazza how would you compare the UB against the JK?

                              • Thanks for posting all that fazza I'v been trying I decide between a Ub and cc for a while, all that really helps (although all I know now is I want both)
