5cm of concave? I think that must be a typo... not sure if you mean 5mm concave or 5cm rocker.

I meant cm deep. I am betting in the future boards will have deeper concaves not measured in mm but in cm. Ocean Rodeo is almost 2 cm concave- 18 mm to be exact and it is a narrow board.

Wow that's a lot! Has any company made anything like that yet? Seems like it would stick to the water like glue and have a lot of drag, but without ever riding a board like that I can't speak from experience.

My Hadlow had a LOT of concave and it felt like it was on tracks... it took a lot of effort to break free from the surface. It also had a very limited top end and felt like it had a lot of drag. For a lighter rider though it would have been a fun board.
