Test Driving Our New Shape

by steve watts October 10, 2012

We are always working on new shapes and new ways to ride. We are currently prototyping three or four different shapes for release in the future! This is just one of them. Designed by Slyde and brought to hydrodynamic perfection by our unbelievably talented shaper, Donny Brink!

We cannot reveal too much about it just yet, but you know this bad boy kicks ass, and we found it very worthy of its original thought of being a great handplane for a steep shore break. If you have the cajones for some epic sessions landing on the sand, this board is perfect for you.  If not, it's still an epic out backhand board. It will be a little while before we bring her to market for you to snap up.  We have a few changes to make it even more epic! For now, check out Paul and Donny working the magic!
