Tim Stamps 12'6 Stand Up Raceboard: Big and boxy

This is a big board for a big boy. When you're solidly in the two bill category (I'm 212lb right now) you can't effectively race on a board made for a guy weighing a buck eighty. That's where this baby comes in:

No big deck cockpit and a big, wide, square tail. I've spent enough time following fast boards out there to see how cleanly the water comes off those boxy hindquarters- kind of fascinating actually. Next time your out take a look at how the water sheets off the different tail shapes. Granted, a lot has to do with how the rider is trimming the board but still, it's worth taking a look even if it does mean all those ahead of you are smoking your a#$.
