RE: What is this?

Very interesting planform and bottom shape. However, given the limited perspectives of the bottom, it's a bit difficult to comprehend it with any real certainty. Also, the inclusion of the smallest fin in the rear of the board is somewhat curious, especially given the seemingly large high aspect main fin located well forward. Maybe the large fin functions more like a daggerboard, as with the Serenity. One wonders what kind of wind range the board performs best in. Needless to say, a very novel concept.

It looks like it has 2 deck plate positions

This is reminicent of the 'original' Sea Panther (for those old enough to remember them) from the 80s which also had two corresponding daggerboard positions.

Would be interesting for someone to explain the rationale and to see if it is a 'reinvention of the wheel'

I still think if that tail is removable - you would have a home run!
