A rockin 'stash is required for wikkid aerodynamics! Honestly people, it acts as a diffusor breaking up the linear air flow into a turbulent air flow, which stays closer to your head, which causes less drag.

The guy above, if he wasn't lazy, he'd be so aerodynamic he'd be moving forwards with his legs moving rolling backwards!
This board would be a nicer place if everyone would take themselves less seriously.

Not sure if I'd want to be eating a burrito with a really nasty moustache :?

Yes yes,

But you'll note that different shapes suit different sports.

This is a "loft and carry" stash suited to distance jumping.


Z's is more about eh... Breaking wind.

Wasn't it Mark Spitz who claimed his tache deflected water to help him breathe better and swim faster. Which then prompted a boat load of Russian and East Germans to grow them after his 7th Gold medal.

Which also included their women's teams.
