Hideoscillous: ie. Hideous Oscillations

from the Latin root hideous to the eye, yet one possessing beautiful oscillating motions in the water.

An extreme combination of modern hull contours produces the glide of ‘free-friction’ between turns which intersects with the hold of a back foot ‘clamp’. A pedal-to-the-metal bear down of ultimate gougeability through maneuvers. 

The old adage ‘looks can be deceiving’ & ‘true beauty lies within’ are the driving forces of this compact possessor of an unassuming depth of character.

This one – the Hideoscillous, transforms small surf like no other board I’ve made ’til now – it feels like the board rides on air – no friction – yet holds & corners on rails while balancing controlled lip release.

It’s like a healthy marriage between free friction & ultimate gouge-ability.

I may go so far as to say that this new rocker & steep concave bottom can be placed on any outline & foil to increase the horsepower.

The ugly duckling that transforms into a swan when you step foot on it.

I have been pondering a new paradigm for rockers & hull contours for over three years now. The days pass & I’ve continued to grind out & refine existing concepts … all the while knowing something new was coming. A groaning of enlightened concept awaiting a bursting forth.

Why did I wait this long?hideoscillous-3d

Well, things must germinate … and I didn’t think I could draw in CAD what my mind saw … I would need to hand shape the prototype.

A new balanced/centered rocker, moderate entry, low tail rocker, with heavy heavy tow board-like concaves running nose-to-tail & dynamic steep drop rocker concave running dual inset bonzer-esque caves which exhaust straight off the tail block.

The outline, width & thickness determine the wave type.

A beach-break friendly shortboard for the smallest, most gutless days. Like surfing your shortboard so your transition back to decent waves is more seamless. Turns the “small wave boo-hoo’s into the small wave woo-hoo’s”

a word from the shaper:

The ugly duckling that transforms into a swan when you step foot on it. A small wave board where ‘free-friction’ meets ‘ultimate gougeability’ in a marriage of perfectly complementing design concepts.

as demonstrated by Pete Mendia
The carbon/ kevlar stringerless epoxy construction makes this a very lively summertime, average waves section-making, buckets to the roof machine.

resin tint options:

Tubes, tubes and more tubes. Barrels and buckets and buckets of barrels. In Hawaii, in Mexico, in Australia where they’ve all gone feral. Shacks at dawn and dusk, even under moonlight and threat of the musky musk and the tusky tusk. Barrels for beebops and toddlers and grownups. We’ll navigate the future with religious zeal, riding holy rollers and watery chariots following on @keepittropical ‘s heels 6'1" x 19" x 2 9/16" 31L #holyrollersurfboard

I’ve always admired the surfers that go to the places where everybody else isn’t. Watching the swell charts and the winds and tides, getting intel from the boots on the sand underground expats. Waiting till the masses flock to the next tour stop to pull the trigger on going to an off season under the radar swell that’s the farthest away from the melee. @petemendia seems to have always had a certain penchant for watching the wheels go round and round, no longer riding on the merry go round. People think he’s crazy doing what he’s doing (that was the Beetles btw) …but when you find empty peaks that are guttering out and running down the trench for tubes longer and deeper and emptier than a world that’s got it’s focus diverted away from the mystique of adventure basqued in solitude…that’s where you’ll find the yeti. Here he rides a 7’8” x 19 1/4” x 2 7/8” #Pipecleanersurfboard with orange air spray, black racy rails, glassed strong, with plenty of paddle power, carbon for strength, shallow single to double concaves to vee, and a quad to get an extra gear of speed to roll right through three foam balls, eight speed bumps and four chandeliers on the way to an exit 100 yards from where you pulled in.

Backhand carve in Da Islands by @petemendia 
6’3” x 19 1/4” x 2 11/16” 32.5L #Flyinlionsurfboard roundtail slight step-up in poly construction. This model is currently our most popular high performance step-up. It threads barrels, yet does in the pocket like a shortboard. Glide in paddle so you get in early. It has heavy concaves through the fins that provide for a clampy grip off the bottom that holds and drives into the lip with maximum drive. It’s snappy with controlled release through carves too. So if your looking for which step-up out of all my different shapes this winter this is the one for that overhead+ ripping range.
