Keith Hollien describes his Signature Deck:
My models are intended for SURF STANCE. The major benefit of my shape is the amount of leverage that the large platform area provides for your feet. The extra leverage positively effects your ability to apply pressure directly to the trucks. The main advantage of my version of the cutaway shape is that it gives the rider increased area for the placement of their front foot in the curve of the cutaway (behind the front truck). This helps to initiate turns quicker. The placement of the back foot on the back wing (in front of the rear truck) helps to give the rear truck better traction. I like my boards very stiff. In slalom, flex can help you, but, it can also hinder you. I believe that your own energy is what makes you go fast and a small amount of flex and camber can give you some energy when turning, but after a certain point, flex can rob your energy. I'm 6' tall and weigh about 165 lbs., but my boards are ridden by people of all ages, weights and sizes. They are very stiff and concave and have almost no flex or camber.
