Summer Surfboard Pick

by on Friday 12th April, 2013   75077 Visits   Comments

HERE’S a secret: the more volume you have under your feet, the faster and harder you can surf on smaller, weaker waves. Foam is your friend and these are six picks for our summer quiver.

There is an inevitable compromise between foam and performance, but this not a linear relationship. More foam can be used creativity by shapers to retain performance on the most gutless slop or to break out on a wild tangent, creating whole new ways of thinking about surfing through design. These shapes cover a numer of surf paradigms, making it not so much a choice of which is ‘better,’ rather - what do you want to do with it?
