Ebony and ivory - surfing in perfect harmony…
Riders: my son Julius and me
I tested the "negative rocker" on my Black Lisa's board.
It sure makes her go faster and with less bouncing on FLAT water, but when it comes to narrow turns on the wave's face she now suddenly shows the tendency to catch (= to point her nose down and to dive into the water) which she never did before.
My son's board (= Blonde Lisa without negative rocker) could carve turns into the wave's face much more radical without any catching or diving problems.
Result: I will remove the negative rocker from my Black Lisa's board again.
