7'1" Liddle GP
7'2" x 18 1/8" Nose x 22 3/8" x 15" Tail x 3"
This is the way that Greg Liddle shaped his personal hulls! The sweeping s-deck gradually builds thicker starting from the tail up through the back third of the board then slowly leveling out as the inflection point of the curve aligns with the forward wide point. The valley of the s-deck is reached in the top quarter of the board as it converges with the slope of the nose rocker to begin its incline towards the end of the nose. The forgiving entry rocker is balanced with a deep rolled bottom and a large amount of surface area in the nose which then tapers softly in the classic Liddle teardrop outline that pulls out an elongated, narrow round tail. The rails are extremely foiled, you'd never believe that it hides as much thickness in the center since over an inch of foam is shaved down by the time it's been tapered to it's 50/50 rail which keeps its soft, rounded shape all the way throughout the tail. The displacement hull runs the entire length of the board and holds the shape of its convexity from nose all the way until about the last third of the board where the roll starts to flatten out slightly.
