I converted my old broken 2011 North 5'8" WAM. Thanks to Mark Franklin for the work and use of his shop.

This is what it looked like when it was new.

Phase 2 cut off the nose to shorten it to 5'0". Introducing a wider nose with more volume and concave.

After a day trying to foil in challenging conditions I am much happier with the changes to my board.
