Stamps Fuse – Gas Pedal in Front, Shred Pedal in back

Stamps Fuse – Gas Pedal in Front, Shred Pedal in back

I call this board “Lighting” not only because its fast and can zig zag of the wave like a bolt of lighting, but because the first day I took it out at HB Pier there was lighting and by the end of the session hail was falling in the water.

Anyway, I had Tim Stamps shape a 5’11″ Fuse to try out. In a world of hulls, single fins, pigs, v-bottoms, asymetrics, simmons, and all the other tangent boards your can try, sometimes a fast quad that turns of the bottom and the top, cut backs and excellerates is when pumped in a variety of conditions seems as crazy as the rest of the above mentioned surfboards.

This board is a blend of fish up front with a pulled in tail and a quad set up in the tail. The rails are thinner then a fish but the front of the board still has some width and a mild beak nose. The bottom is fast with contours that feed the water out the quad set up for drive and speed.

My superstition with a new board is if you catch the first wave when you first try for you have a winner. Now we all know superstitions are super stupid but I did catch the first wave with this board and made a couple of turns. I have had it out on several sessions since and have enjoyed pumping it and getting moving. Late drops and hard turns off the bottom coming to the top of the wave and cutting back where all made with this style of board.

The board is short at 5’11″ but I can see a surfer looking to go even shorter on a board like this with the full outline. All in all a board I can throw in the car on the way to the beach and as long as I don’t end up a long board spot I should have it covered.

Pictures say a thousand words so here is a few more thousand words about this board.

Tim Stamps Quad Fish

Tim Stamps Quad Fish

Quad Fish We took the classic Twin Keel and reved it up a bit. Added some nose rocker, pulled the nose in, thinned out the rails, and of course added a Quad fin set up. Slight double concaves run from just behind center through the fins.This all adds up to a super fast, very positive board. Super fun in all conditions. Typical dimension: 5’8″ 16″N 21″W 16″T 2 7/16″Th Size range: 5’2″ – 6’6″ Material: EPS/Epoxy, PU/PE

Tim Stamps Stubby

Tim Stamps Stubby

The Stubby is single fin action. A full curvy outline wth a slightly pulled in nose characterize this model. Inspied by the king, “MP”. The wider tail and center will keep you flowing while the reduced nose outline will let you turn tight arcs. A super fun board with flow and arc potential.

Typical dimension: 5’10″ 15″T 19 3/4″W 14 1/2″N 2 5/8″Th
Size range: 5’8″ – 6’4″

Tim Stamps Over Easy

Tim Stamps Over Easy

This is our popular and versatile egg shape. Wide and glide like a long board, yet shorter and curvy to keep your arcs tight. Ride this one short if you want to get aggressive or add some length if you want to cruise. Go wierd and get your Wayne Lynch on! A must have in the quiver. Set up as a single, 2 + 1, or “bonzer”.

Typical dimension: 7’0″ 15 1/4″T 21 1/4″W 16 1/2″N 2 5/8″
Size range: 5’10″ – 8’0″

A classic displacement hull. That should explain it, but just in case. Widepoint way foreward, extremely low tail rocker, knifey 50/50 rails, flex fin, and continual curves nose to tail and rail to rail. Like riding a droplet of water in a wind tunnel. Minimalist surfing at it’s purest.

Typical dimension: 7’0″ 15 1/8″ 22 1/2″ 17″ 2 5/8
