The Fowler Team Model is a modern classic approach by combining earlier generation sensibilities infused with modern day elements.  

It is interesting to note that BF's progressive outline curve  developed for more aggressive surfing bears a stunning resemblance to Nat Young's "Magic Sam," which Young rode to fame  and fortune during the 1966 World Championships. 

The less than wide nose features what Fowler describes as "an absolute flat rail to rail that works perfectly with the obtuse, almost squarish round, of the forward rails" for what Fowler describes as "responsible noseriding".  

The bottom curve incorporates  a strategically placed "pitch" that facilitates easy turning while retaining that 60's classic trim position found a couple feet back from the nose. The longer straighter section forward of the pitch angle makes for a stable platform that planes well for extending time on the nose.

The rail progression is a heady study in plane geometry and compound curves, from it's "roundish square" forward section to the semi down railed tail section. The slight bellied bottom and rocker apex found beneath the rider's feet demonstrates an acute understanding of what makes a long surfboard turn easily with little effort.

Whether your approach to surfing is Modern or Classic, the Team Model is one of the easiest riding longboards you will find on the market today,, backed by a shaper with over half a century of surfing and design experience.
