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 board that has the whippy feel of an epoxy with the rail hold of a poly

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.

This just in: @keepittropical dreamweaving through timetunnels in the land down under. 6’0” x 19” x 2 9/16” 29L #holyrollersurfboard 
Jarrah is 5’11”, 175Lbs. 
@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
