ASK Al: Empty Wave = Bottom Contours and Rockers?

  • 04.16.2021

When I see an empty wave in a magazine or video, I mind-surf it. When you see an empty wave, do you automatically think rockers, bottom contours, and tail shape?

God bless,


Al responds, “I mind surf it just like any other surfer. A design idea will often pop into my head in the middle of the night. Back in the 70’s and 80’s when design concepts were completely new, we used to test out wild ideas a lot more often with team riders like Davey Smith.”Ask Al
