The Narrow Nico is a template that has been passed down to me from my mentor, Jim Philips who originated the design and coined the name Slim Jim.
I have been greatly influenced also by Nico at Wave Gliders. Nico took the time to drill in to me the importance of hand-shaping and traditional methods.
So when Jim passed a copy of this template onto me I renamed the model in honour Nico.
This is a versatile design for all wave types but it excels in point breaks. The board is a little narrow than standard logs to give it more down-the-line speed. The nose is pulled in to stop it from feeling cumbersome and to allow the board to nose ride deep in the curl. It has a pulled-in tail to give control over those high speeds and a low volume pinched rail that crate a sensitivity and stability through smooth turns.
