Because of the longer length, these boards can be shaped narrower while maintaining adequate stability.
They often are from 23” to 27” wide. We normally do our deep cockpit with a drainpipe to maximize stability.
Boards this length are difficult to steer against the wind or turn around race buoys, so most guys get them with foot steering and a rudder.
They are available with a Canoe or Destroyer nose. Both the Canoe nose or Destroyer nose can be made with a solid, ½” fiberglass tip that will make them stronger and even sharper.
