so of the out of the current wave line, I suppose the evo is a little bit more suitable to onshore conditions correct? anyway, I was thinking about how the flare has been developed with a different angle on the front footstraps to allow easier switch stance ridding. why nit apply this concept into onshore wave shapes to allow for an easier onshore bottom turn. I think it would work well to have two different footstrap angle options on the board, so that onshore would work better, but if you ever get side shore you can change them back for normal ridding.

what you guys think?

I know some people that have tried that, but actually for the opposite reason: to tune a rather wide board for better sideshore performance.

Huh thats interesting. I don't get to sail waves much so I don't know how this idea would work out. I know it works great for freestyle! And I'm curious to see that other companies haven't caught on with it. How do you think it would do in cross onshore to onshore conditions?
