Looks like a flatland board to me. As a rule, flatland shape boards are not very good on waves.

it has a carbon bottom so thats probably why its that price
seabass beat me in the heat with it on saturday, so yeah it's good on waves. then again i've seen him ride a piece of glass and still kill it
I don't understand the logic in building single-sided carbon skimboards. Straight E-glass is stronger than a carbon bottom and eglass top. You can get away with uneven layups in surfing but not so much with skimboards.

The single layer of carbon gives the board longer sand wear life and more pop than a e glass bottom. If e glass was stronger than carbon don't you think there would be a lot more e glass boards in demand?
I love this board its the only board I have been riding lately . There is a lot more than carbon making this board pricey there are e glass reinforcements threw out the board and perimeter weighting, Giving the board a balanced spin. The wide squash tail gives you a lot of stability making it easy to throw down tech tricks after hitting the wave face.After riding the board and letting the locals and slotstik riders test it out we decide it would be better described as a tech board and not a flatland board.
