With the idea of peeling the winter skins off and the fact that summer is nipping at our heels I couldn't help myself but to assess my summer quiver. I began to revisit my notes in regards to the aurora and I came to the realization that I had to push the envelope and evolve the original prototype. With the Lord boards heavy on the mentals I took most of the design ideas from the Lord/Simmons theory. With the help of my buddy Simon (featured above) the aurora ii features a flatter bottom, flatter rocker in both the nose and tail, 2 extra channels and a wider tail, the aurora ii was born. I'll be testing this board over the next couple months so I'll have to report back with the progress.
