Tristian Mausses Progressive Modern Hull Design starts with a tucked under edge on rail from the fins to the tail. pivot point on the rear foot, with a wide point centred in the middle of the board unlike the hull classic, which has its wide point well in front of the middle of the board.
It also appeared on a classic hull with a wide nose (generally between 18 to 19 inches) that this nose width was beneficial on fast waves with a wall where the surfer favours a fast trim, on the front end of the board to gain speed.
Reducing the nose width, moving the wide point back and therefore moving the hull back. The PMH Tail rocker is very slightly more accentuated than a classic hull. The nose rocker is the same as a point break Hull, moving the fins back and favouring the back foot control the key ingredients in revisiting the Hull with the modern tweak
Aiding the modern manoeuvrability of the this shape is the Hand crafted fins Recommended by Tristian Mausse and with this board a Minimalist 8” Flex fin with long narrow rake and a small base keeping the pivot and maximising the Hulls natural drive, to compensate for the loss of fin depth and therefore prevent the tail (which is quite large in itself) to chase and slip, two small thin sides (trailers) are added to the 8-inch central fin. The trailer fins act as a grip but their sizes are not overpowering and leave the pure sensation of a single fin. For these trailer fins, Tristian was inspired by a classic D from the end of the 50s. For the outline of the board, inspiration came from the boat plans present in Lindsay Lord's book, Naval Architecture of Planing Hulls, But also Ted Spencer's stubby, or at least Shane's White Kites.
