Big Boy Shortboard

Big Boy surfboard

The big boy is a fuller outline shape with a low entry rocker. The Big Boy's balance of double concave bottom, diamond tail and refined tail rocker makes this board fast but still allows you to do turns with really tight turning arcs.

A very versatile surfboard, good for first time shortboard buyers, older or heavier surfers looking for a performance surfboard or for surfers who want the advantage of catching all the waves.

Comes with a 3 fin set-up.

EPS Epoxy Construction- high density EPS core with stringer, glassed with epoxy, bamboo veneer deck, making a stronger and lighter board than PU

4 x 4 Shortboard

4x4 shortboard

This surfboard can go anywhere.... that's why we called it the 4x4.

We have made a few changes to enhance paddling and wave catching and to give better flow in rail to rail turns.

We have also used clear epoxy construction.

A chunky, lower-rockered shortboard. with a balanced curve from nose to tail giving flow and feel. The vee-to-double concave is well defined, giving extra feel and speed. The subtle fish tail allows you to manouvre from under the lip on shifty beach breaks.

This is a small-wave board that glides at low speed and holds when your going fast. Comes with a thruster three fin set-up.

If you normally ride a shortboard you can go down a few inches on the 4x4. If you ride a 6'6 shortboard, a 6'2 4x4 would suit.

Review

"U kidding me? Great board. Great design. A total wave hog. Love it! :)"

"The 5'10 just fast, surfed it in Bali in overhead waves and it was not at all on the limit the 5`10 i call a rocket! Pipeline board ! Pure Love!!"

Due to the amount of positive feedback we have received, the 4 x 4 has become one of our standard shapes

 

The Fatboy

fatboy shortboard

The Fatboy is a new shape for 2013 season. The full body shape with a wide squash tail allows this board to pick-up waves others can't. Wide throughout the outline, this board is a wave catching machine.

The single to double concave with vee out the tail adds speed and maneuverability

The perfect board for intermediate surfers ready to go to the next level, or for bigger guys who want a performance surfboard with a little extra volume.

Clear EPS Epoxy Construction

The 4x4 and the Fatboy are made with a new light weight Epoxy/fibreglass laminated EPS core. This differs from the more traditional polyester/fibreglass laminated polyurethane core by being lighter and having vastly superior mechanical qualities, and having a great feel on the water
