The Arrow from Maria Riding Company on Vimeo.
Rui Alexandre is from Portugal and sent me these great shots of one of his new models to share. "This model is "The Arrow" and we tried to mix the old fish tale curves with a kind of modern performance size. I hope you enjoy it."

No mistaking the dog bone influence with this outline.
It is 5'3" x 17 1/4" x 2 5/8". Nose / Tail both 19 1/4". Shaped by Matt Green out of Dolphin Surfcraft @ Burleigh. It is EPS and epoxy, stringerless.
Hull entry leads into a flatter mid section with a slight concave out through the fins
The taper in the rails lets the water flow from the narrower mid section over the tail
He runs some fairly large fins on it at the moment.
I saw Hilton surfing it at The Alley last weekend and asked him to send some pics.He was going well on the board, scooting down the line and having fun.
