Gary Hanel on Pill design: “I have a couple of guys that are riding 5’2” versions of this board. It has a 17” nose and is 21 wide and a 16 1/2 tail. It has a quad set up with a bonzer like double concave between the inside fins. I designed this board in response to the mini sims. I could not bring myself to shape such square stuff so that is why I rounded out the tail. The first board had a wider rounder nose but we thought this made the board a little less responsive. These boards now turn off the bottom and the top really well and you can surf them standing up without having to crouch down and hold the rail like so many of the square wide boards that I see so much. I was amazed that they held an edge so well. I think they should be ridden 4 to 8” shorter than a fish.”
