Our high-performance model for summer days, the Thumbs Up, was designed to surf in conditions with full and/or small waves. With a wider outline, the board reduces the chances of “catching the rail” in fat waves. This happens because the rail of the board sinks more than usual in these conditions. If the surfer is using a narrow board, their foot may touch the water, resulting in a loss of speed, which is why it is necessary to use wider boards in these wave conditions.
We recommend it to be 3 to 5 inches shorter than your high-performance board.
Surfboards are available in Epoxy (EPS foam) and PU (polyurethane foam).

High-performance small wave surfboards on East Coast, Australia
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 increased rocker (bottom contour) to be more responsive to the wave shape and vertical maneuvers, while having narrow tails that help in the execution of fast maneuvers and turns.
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.
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.
Have any doubts between polyurethane foam (polyester resin) and EPS foam (epoxy resin)?
Surfboards made out of PU (polyresin) are the most common around the globe even in regards to the professional surfing elite, this is because they are more predictable and consistent under your feet. The PU board has a slower flex pattern due to its 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 have more pressure ding resistance from the surfer’s feet.
Their lighter weight comes with a downside, they are not ideal on bigger and 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 impact of the bumps is transferred to the surfer’s legs. In this scenario, the PU has an easier time dealing with bumps on the wave surface.
