Bento box

The Bento  Box was designed during a trip in Japan that had some pretty small, but fun waves as we traveled up, and back down the coast. I kept thinking about a sleeker WTF type of shape with lots of paddle and glide, yet a refined rail to keep it really responsive off the tail.  It features elements from the WTF and the Twin Keel Fish models along with features that make it it's own creature. A blend of the outline and rocker line of the WTF, with the deck profile of the TKF is where the model started. It has a low 'fish' type rocker,  with a flatter deck profile and lower angular rails. The rail tapers out through the fin area and out through the tail block for a responsive tail section that is easy to set on edge. Flat under the nose, running into a slight single concave through the center with vee out the tail. Set in the fin area is a slight double concave. The foil is fuller through nose and center and blends into a thinner tail section.  Out the tail is a short 'slot channel' to give a little relief in the lower rocker and add some extra bite with the quad set up. The outline is full with a blunt rounded nose and a wing (right about where the back foot should be during a turn) squash tail to loosen it up, reduce surface area, and give a 'pivot' point.
