greasedPig.pngGreased Pig

A speed machine for chest high waves and smaller; this is the type of board that you drive like a race car….it’s going fast so all you gotta’ do is hang on and steer. It has a low entry rocker for quick paddling, ease catching waves, and increased lift in small/ flatter faced waves. The bottom has a slight rolled vee in the nose to a single concave through the belly that transitions into a pronounced spiral vee that increases off the tail. This hull design carries excellent trim speed and gives the tail a very free feeling in the small stuff. The rails are fuller and boxier with forgiving edges that are softly blended into the bottom. Ride this board 2-3 inches shorter, 3/8” –1/2” wider, and 1/16” thicker than your standard “good waves” shortboard. Everything the high performance shortboards do in good waves this board does in the crud. This one works best as a swallow. Glides through sections.

Greased Pig v.2

This is a slightly changed-up, finely tuned child of the original Greased Pig. I slightly increased and smoothed out the entry rocker and took out all the vee through the bottom; running instead a single concave with subtle inset doubles that funnel through the length of the board. By removing the vees and replacing them with concaves, the board becomes much more versatile and can handle bigger, hollower sections with more hold, drive and responsiveness through maneuvers. It is not meant to replace the original Pig; as the original I believe is still the go to board for weak, mushy waves where you want maximum speed on trim between maneuvers. The Greased Pig II fits the bill for those who loved the original, but want something with a little more hold in critical sections and that can handle some pushier waves as well.

Same re-dimensioning applies… 2-3 inches shorter, 3/8” – 1/2” wider, and 1/16” thicker than your standard “good waves” board. Works great as a swallowtail if you want to keep it looser and hip squash is where it’s at for a more pivoty snappy feel.

Greased Pig v.3

This one is the same as v.1 rocker & bottom but with a sleeked up shortboardy outline and instead of swallowtail, has a subtle hip to pulled-in swallow. This one works best as a swallow. Glides through sections.

Greased Pig v.4

The Greased Pig v.4 is a more aggressive and versatile design than that of the original Greased Pig. I added more curve in the entry rocker to allow for tighter surfing in the steeper areas of the wave, while keeping the original rocker through the midsection and off the the tail…to maintain its drivey, speedy glide through the slopey bits. The hull contour now has a single concave running from the nose through the middle, then splitting to a double concave through the fins with a subtle spiral vee off the tail. This provides a wider open sweet spot that caters to a broad variety of styles and stances; as well as predictability in a wide range of wave types and conditions. The tail has been pulled in to give the board excellent hold on rail all the way through fully committed arcs. The nose outline has also been pulled in with a more constant curve from nose tip to front fins. This also allows the board to pull smooth, tight arcs in turns. Overall a very versatile everyday board that loves everything from two foot and slopey to overhead and throaty.

Greased Pig HD

Hideoscillous rocker & bottom. Ideal for small scale waves; incredible back foot control through on-rail full-speed cutties. Versatile, user-friendly summertime easyrippin’ performance board. Moderate to low drivey rocker, yet still nice and whippy. A board you don’t have to think too much on…it just goes like a horse out tha gate. Works great as a swallowtail if you want to keep it looser and hip squash is where it’s at for a more pivoty snappy feel.

a word from the shaper:

it is unreal on small days and still rips when the waves get decent to good as well. I have been doing more of them recently with a few new tweaks and the board is just a truly classic easy to ride, quick to get speed drivey, big buckets fun machine.

@salty_crew @yeti 

The Holy Roller is a fuller nosed, swept back and pulled in tail for getting deep in slabby tubes. It allows you to ride a shorter, more compact board in bigger waves. As opposed to a traditional step-up that would have more rail line and be like 6-12 inches longer. It holds volume down the center and through the the chest, and tops off with a groovy subtle beak nose to spark in early.

After a 2 year hiatus from doing board breakdowns, mostly just due to being inundated with boards, I’ve decided to make it a point (due to repeated requests) to break down the latest brainstorms and board models and design ideas as they hit me. Here’s an in-depth look at the Falcon 2 & Falcon 3, a versatile groveler and performance shortboard 2-pack that revisit the reverse vee design of the early 90’s, reimagined in an extreme format complemented by a high-powered deeply concaved engine through the fins. #falcon2surfboard #falcon3surfboard
