One year on a shaping trip too Hawaii i was given a by a close shaper friend a template from the original Simon Anderson thruster, i was so stoked, it became one of my most treasured templates, i actually used that tail template (behind the bump) on most my shortboards, i thought it was cool cos i was making thrusters in 2016 that were still kinda connected too the OG thruster from 1980. anyhow it never actually occurred too me that the rest of the template is also relevant, untill Seb came along one day last year, looking specifically for something a little smaller, faster and fun for summer...
So ive kept that 80's style outline, its quite parallel which provides drive, and the bump wing pulls the tail in nicely for a bit of back foot control. bottom wise the center line rocker is relatively flat and then ive utilized a fairly heavy vee in the nose and tail which create more rail line rocker, one too stop the nose catching the other too free up the tail. the main other design component is the flatter deck with step or chimed rails, this keeps a lot of foam pushed out towards the rails displacing a lot of volume to and from where youd usually find it, which basically means you can surf the ginger lynn a little thinner than your regular board, the advantage of this is you feet are nearer the water which like a lower sports car feels a lot faster! i also add a touch of double deck concave in the tail for a natural feel right away, tail pad optional!
