Known as a “displacement hull”, this 70′s rocket was born and perfected at Malibu. It’s pinched rails and bellied hull make this a rail turner extraordinaire.

Another variant of the mid-length Bojorquez, this shortboard also uses the displacement hull and combines scientific hydro theory with “fish” design, yielding performance!

Klaus Jones – Siglo

Klaus Jones – Siglo

The Siglo is not for the slow minded or those weak of limb. This pygmy pod is tailored for maximum velocity, trim speed, flex, and fit. a very fast ship built for stout hearted riders to make it in, around, and out of harm’s way in one very long potentially curvaceously connected line. Steve Krajewski – Alex Kopps – Jones collaborative formula.

Sizes: 5’10″ to 6’6″ – Single Fin

Steve Krajewski, aka “Dirt,” worked his own set of dynamics into the boards he surfed over 4 decades, this shape and size range reflects those dynamics and intentions. This template is born of an all or nothing mentality when it comes to drawing lines across waves, facilitating maximum glide speed, rider/water connectivity.

Sizes: 6’6″ to 7’2″ – Single Fin

If you have surfed this board please write a review and share your experience.

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

This outline is still a down the line design but can adapt to a variety of beach and reef breaks. It has the same trim speed in a straight line as the very full outlined point break design but with a shorter turning radius. The wide point is moved back and more curve is added to the plan shape to free up the outline making direction changes and turning back more accessible.

It is easier to ride in many conditions and can be ridden as a single fin ( usually with a larger center fin ) or with a smaller single fin and the side runners and a smaller center fin.

This design is ideal for intiating oneself into the concept and idea of the smooth planing modified displacement hull design. It is versatile and there is an easier transition from the flat bottom with “V”, banana rocker, curvy outline, pivot, squirt and run concept of surfboard design.

The weight / length chart is a general suggestion depending on what length of board you are used to. Individuals are just that and may prefer longer and shorter versions of the same design ever though they be of the same height and weight.

Main thing is that you should be able to just launch the board, stand in trim position and the board should plane out at trim speed without any added impetus or gyrations on your part. That is the beauty of the design.

The smaller the board the more wave energy it takes to make it plane out. If you ride weaker waves you might want to go with a longer version to make planing efficient.
