For as big of waves as you dare to paddle into. A Waimea, Todos Santos, Mavericks style gun . . . for deep water big wave spots.

Made with plenty of volume for paddle speed to get in early, a rocker to handle long, steep drops and a vee bottom that bolts, driving through perilous troughs.


All guns customized according to surfer’s build & size/shape of waves to be surfed.
