The Jacobs High Performance model is a tri-fin model designed for maneuverability and speed with a slight concave nose, flat middle bottom and a vee bottom tail. This board is one of our most popular models. The extra overall rocker, soft rails in the middle, and hard edge in the tail make this board ideal for faster and larger wave conditions where you can dig the tail into the wave for big sweeping turns and powerful off the lips. This board is glassed with lighter materials (6+4oz deck, 6oz bottom) for increased maneuverability and speed. The Jacobs High Performance is an essential for any quiver.

Drawing on several years of experience shaping shortboards for professionals and amateurs alike, Matt Calvani has developed a fish design that provides the glide of a longboard but the maneuverability and speed of a shortboard. Unlike any other fish on the market, the Jacobs Twin-fin Fish features the traditional outline from the 1970s and the progressive rail of a modern shortboard. Characterized by its fiberglass kiel fins (glass-on or box), the Jacobs Fish possesses the perfect balance of width and thickness for any size waves.

Borrowing its name from the 1960s Jacobs model, the “New Shape” due to similarities in its conception, the modern-day Jacobs New Shape model was designed when several team riders demanded a versatile board, ideal for quick, challenging conditions and contest surfing. Hap encountered this same request during the 60s and got together with one of his shapers at the time, Rick Irons, and came up with the original New Shape Model. Today’s New Shape utilizes a shorter noserider blank, i.e. dimensions and rocker, to give you glide and stability for noseriding but adds a round pintail, a 2+1 Jacobs signature fiberglass fin setup and a hard edge through the tail for maneuverability and quick response. This board is ideal for medium to big beach break or reef break. The New Shape is praised as the most versatile board in the Jacobs line.
