The Diamond Cutter

The Diamond Cutter has evolved from the success of the Bullet series and the need for some variation. I have always fancied the soft diamond tail as a tail with multi functions. Firstly it has a corner to lever off but if you round it a tad it sort of falls between a rounded pin and a rounded square tail with DNA from both. I think the success of the Bullet series was partly due to the easy pivot of the round tail so I did not want to divorce from that feel totally. Punctuating a tail with a corner reduces the curve in the back half of the plan shape which in turn helps face hug but can stiffen the board a tad. Being a quad this is not a biggy and if anything encourages this board into even bigger waves.

The Diamond Cutter has the same dimensions as the Silver but is a little thicker on the stringer, but has the same rail thickness which has been achieved with a little more deck roll. Although I believe that quads can handle thicker rails more paddle can come from extra width rather than thickness and we know quads bight regardless of their width. I guess the Cutter fits between the Fat and the Silver but moreover is the one you would go for if you were leaning more toward larger surf and paddle was paramount.
