Our Surfboards

High-performance surfboards

Our performance series shortboard models were developed to maintain the highest level in whatever condition. 

What are the best models for high performance in demanding surf?

The ideal boards for demanding surf have lots of rocker (bottom contour) to be more responsive to the wave shape and be more vertical on maneuvers. while having narrow tails that help in the execution of maneuvers and turns. 

We recommend the models: The Slicer e Overall.

What are the models that have good stability without compromising performance? 

The surfer that’s after a friendlier board that retains its performance, should look for a wider outline with more nose and width in the middle 

We recommend the models: Sweetspot e UFO.

Looking for that ideal summer board for weaker and fatter conditions?

We recommend our Modern Fish model. it’s a very versatile board that works well from 1 foot to 6 feet. 

Another model we recommend is the Thumbs Up.

All our boards come in polyurethane (PU) or epoxy (EPS), with the option of being a thruster or quad setup, with lots of versatility. Take a stroll through our models and reach out to us if you have any doubts.

Having any doubts between polyurethane foam (polyester resin) or EPS foam (epoxy resin)?

the boards made out of PU (polyresin) are the most common around the globe even in regards to the professional surfing elite. 

this is because they have a more predictable e consistent under your feet. The PU board has a slower flex pattern because of the higher foam density.  This makes PU boards a good call for any wave condition. 

Eps foam, on the other hand, is laminated with epoxy resin. The foam’s characteristics are similar to PU but have a very different construction. they are lighter, more durable, and more ding resistant.

Their lighter weight comes with a downside, they are not ideal on bigger, heavier surf especially when the wave surface is bumpy. Since the foam has a harder time absorbing impact because of the lack of weight, the bumps transferred to the surfer’s legs. The PU has an easier time dealing with bumps on the wave surface. 

Fish and twin fin surfboards

Get to know our retro fish (old school fish) and twin fins. All these models are great for drawing classic lines but with a modern feel.

The classic twin fin fish

The classic twin fin fish Classic Twin and Curvalicious, were developed to be used with keel fins. they are inspired by the first models of the late and great Steve Lis. The classic fish is very fast and good on weaker waves. the widened tail has a greater space between fins giving the surfer more back foot support while creating drive. the deep swallow is a key feature in the board’s functionality offering more maneuverability as the water flows within it, having more release. 

The flatter tail rocker is great for speed management and flow, but we added a nose rocker to avoid curling in steeper parts of the wave.

The difference between quad and twin retro fish surfboards

The keel fin twin has a more classic surf experience compared to the quad. this is due to the water pressure that flows easier through quad fins than the large area keel fin. That makes the quad more performance-oriented and loser than its keel counterpart. 

The Twin keel has fluid speed management through turns,  carrying momentum, and generating projection. If you want to learn more about it, read our how to choose a fish surfboard article.

Twin fin surfboards with trailer fin

For the surfer that wants to try a modern and agile twin fin that resembles a performance shortboard, we recommend the 80s Twin, which is a modern take on the classic 80s performance twinnies made timeless by Mark Richards e Ben Aipa. 

Our Duo Diamond also is a great choice for someone looking for a well-balanced and comfortable surfboard.

In most cases, the twin fin with stabilizer has a more performance-oriented surf because of its more accentuated rocker and narrower tails. 

Single fin surfboards

The single fin surfboard has a relaxed surfing experience, they are the ones that dictate the rhythm in the wave, forget rushing your wave, this is a down-the-line board great for maneuvers with open and classic arcs. These boards are fast in a straight line because they have reduced drag because of the only fin. Try to position your foot always a little in front of where the fin is positioned, this way the board will stay loose for curves and maneuvers.

Mid Length Surfboards

Mid-length surfboards are made for good floatation, fluid turns, and flow, yet still maintaining the maneuverability of a shorter board.

Mid-length Surfboards are for surfers who like the glide of a longboard but want a more practical and maneuverable approach. This type of board varies from 6’6″ to 8’0″, they are ideal for the surfer that wants something in between a longboard and a shortboard.

This style of surfboard varies between 6’6″ and 8’0″ they are ideal for surfers who want to draw classic lines but without leaving performance behind, the bigger the board, the more glide and paddle power you will have. the shorter the board, the more maneuverable it’s going to be.

For the surfer that is after that classic 70’s single fin ride, we recommend our Space Cruiser. It has a narrower tail and comes in a single fin or 2+1 options.

If you want a similar board but with a twin fin option, that adds a lot of versatility and maneuverability to the board, we recommend our Duo Diamond Mid Length.

Our Spearfish and The Alternative models are great for fatter less powerful waves.

Longboard (Log)

Our longboard surfboards, which can be single fins or single fins with stabilizers, have that relaxed surfing that immediately sends you back to the origins of modern surfing and the Californian dream of the 1960s and 1970s.
Our California model has a more distributed and clean outline, ideal for maneuvers and walks to the nose. The Noserider model has more area and a deep single concave in the nose, ideal for hanging five and hanging ten in smaller and weaker conditions, while the Piggy Glider model has more volume close to the tail as if it were kind of a “waist”, this volume pulled further back helps to generate forward projection. Access the respective models and read more about them to find your desired glide.
