We get to see another board design at Wet Feet, a Bill Stewart 11′6″ step deck manufactured by Boardworks. One standing feature of this board is the step deck, which you’ll see on the video.
It has a double-wing pin tail, which can handle fast and steep waves like a long board. The board is typically designed for big guys — a thick 5 and 16th inch thick middle plus a tapered nose and tail.
Wet Feet: Now this is a Bill Stewart board, which is being produced by Boardworks. We’re also to bring out the C4 stand up board. Very interesting outline and lay up on this board – the most dramatic thing and obvious is the step deck, which you see here. It has got some really interesting rails on the tail. It has got a double wing pin tail, which is basically do handle faster waves, steeper waves. So even though it’s a big board, it’s got the long board. This board can actually handle some speed and some decent surf.
Evan: Is it fast?
Wet Feet: Yes, it is. You can also nose ride it with a full nose like this and if you get a center, middle perspective, you can see that the board is about five and a sixteenth thick in the middle, right here. And then it’s very tapered in the nose and the tail. It can float a larger guy.
Evan: How does the bottom look?
Wet Feet: The bottom is also rather interesting. It has got a double concave and a tail here. Some V brought forward and then it flattens out in the mid-section.
Evan: It’s pretty common for that.
Wet Feet: Yeah, it is. But what is unusual is Bill Stewart has done a really subtle bevel along the edges. It starts about two inches from inside the rails. So that’s a performance feature. That’s help the board release on turns.
Evan: And then you’re riding two plus one? It’s kind of a big fin they put on this, huh?
Wet Feet: Yeah, that’s actually not the stock fin. That’s a little more fin than they provided.
Evan: What does it come with stock?
Wet Feet: It comes with an 8-inch fin stock, and two-side bites.
Evan: Three-inch side bites?
Wet Feet: Yeah.
Evan: Ok, cool.
