address' this issue by designing the bottom of
the stern with an abrupt up-turn. [reducing
buoyancy in the stern while surfing which
reduces downward force on the bow.]
Plus, he incorporates a large fin/skeg at the stern
in such a way that the skeg doesn't really
engage much in flat water, [but it engages
strongly while surfing.]
