Electric

Electric

Drive down line and snaps off the lip are inherent traits of this quad. It is a board for the more advanced surfer — a true piece of high performance equipment. With a wider width and tail, it borrows a little of the fish feel. The wings allow the outline to break curve without sacrificing speed, in fact the wings enhance that speed. The swallow is wide, so we have a taste of fish here too. The quad fin set promotes very tight turns, and there is no center fin to cause drag. This board is Electric!

Fish

Fish

A Fish shape is not for beginners, as some skill is needed to make it work. Surfing a Fish is almost like riding a skateboard on water. They have very little rocker, and a width that is almost as wide as a contemporary board that is 3 feet longer. There is lots of curve in the front half of the outline with the tail area becoming much straighter. And it has a wide swallow. Hey, this is not your normal approach to making surfboards. These boards float well for their size, but to remain true to their design concept it is recommended to stay within the 5-6 and 6-6 size range. These boards are for waves in the waist to head high range, although this does not restrict someone from pushing these numbers.

Diamond Tail

Diamond Tail

The corners of the diamond tail are 2″ forward of the same length square tail shortening both the outline and the rocker line at the rail, thus shortening the turning radius. This causes the board to feel shorter, making the Diamond Tail a very responsive design with more than adequate drive and turn connect.

Turbo Banana

Turbo Banana

This is our high performance squash tail that softens the harshness of a square tail. The Turbo performs in all conditions making it a great all around high performance long board. This shape has excellent drive while coming out of the turn, a feature that power surfers really enjoy.

Wing Pin

Wing Pin

Available as a single fin and 2+1, this design is for the more advanced surfer. Pintails have been known for their general forgiving nature since the beginning of modern surfboard design. The pin tail design allows for great transition from turn to cutback. But in the case of the Wing Pin, the wings give drive off the slight corner they create, and the pintail gives some great flow to the turns. This board deserves some real juice!

HP1

HP1

The HP1, our High Performance single fin nose rides, tube rides, paddles and catches waves better than a tri-fin board of similar dimensions because it has no side fins to create drag in the water. Carving turns was never easier on a single fin because of the board’s shape and specifically the specially designed HP fin. This unique fin design wags with the turn and actually thrusts the surfer forward upon exiting the turn! The HP1 is truly a high performance single fin longboard.
