Some people worry that a ‘high performance’ shortboard is not for them. After all, 99% of us will never surf close to the level of today’s top pros, so why would we try to use their equipment? Well, that may be true of the nervous, anorexic pro boards of the past. But not today. Regardless of if you’re investing in your first shortboard or semi-pro, in the same way that these boards helped Gabriel win WCT events in waves from classic Teahupoo to shoulder high Snapper, they will help you surf at the absolute peak of your potential.
A good summer toy is a board that thrives in average-to-small conditions, catches tons of waves, yet still rips when the surf gets good. Anyone can make a cool looking summer board, but to have it still perform when the waves turn on? That’s the challenge..!
Misc. Surf Craft
This category is called ‘miscellaneous wave craft’ – tried and tested designs that cover just about every kind of coastal surfing, and every kind of surfer.
Gone are the days when surfing was only accessible to those living in coastal areas. Since its inception, the sport has constantly pushed new boundaries and generated new concepts and technologies.
With a rising level of inland surfing, the demand for high-performance surfboards tailor-made for a new variety of waves has also increased. But while traditional surfboards are a good entry point into the sport, the bottom line is inland (and wake) waves just don’t break the same way as ocean waves.
As a new and rapidly evolving sport we’re really excited to be pioneering new inland surfboard designs that will help surfers at the cutting edge of the sport evolve even faster. For the past three years, we’ve been working with the best river and wake surfers to create the best inland surfing shapes on the market, and we’re now ready to make this an official category in our product offering.
