As an adult I was able to obtain a similar boat made by a small local boat builder.(which I rarely use, but love just as much as the day I bought it.....in addition to a much smaller 'punt-like' boat (8') that is a complete knock off of this whaler hull)
.... in the past two months not a day goes by that I don't look at those two boats and laugh about making a super thick and super short surfboard shaped exactly like the whaler's hull and no fins... i even reclaimed some old blue flotsam dock foam that's close to eight inches thick, and pretty gnarly...maybe I'll have my chance....
the story behind the whaler's conception and its designers'.. is an excellent one.....very simmonsque (bob simmons)
check out this site for the story:http://continuouswave.com/whaler/reference/13/originalHullDesign.html
thank you for use of the picture

you order these decks for the quality and the painstaking care involved in every build....each veneer is hand picked, hand sanded for the greatest adhesion and bonding possible, which translate to greater durability and superior "POP"..... satisfaction guaranteed..
do to interest, I'm going to save some veneers for custom skateboards this winter
....along with a limited run of top decks, and deep powder singles...There will be a bunch of "flat" deck available this winter...at least one flat deck should be in everyone's quiver....our focus is lighter and more element proof...
homegrown art on this deck....create your own
Surfers have been enjoying personal shapes made by shapers with their input for eons, its time for skaters and snowskaters to experience that thrill...a handmade piece of rideable art specifically created for them based on their needs and input....
customize the xbands, number of varnish coats, your call, you will feel the difference....
