Holy Roller

paddles like a gun, but in a compact length - way easier to stuff up tighter in the barrel and rail steeper in the hook.

The Wizard of Oz: Jarrah draws some Margie’s arcs on a J-bay kine wall at an off-track dreamtime corner wedge...when walkabouts turn violent. 6’0” x 19” x 2 9/16” 30L #Holyrollersurfboard formerly known as the Killa Cali Hustla’ - this board is quickly gaining international accolades so we had to adjust its name to cover a broader spectrum. WWJD was also a question we had to ask ourselves.

Holy Roller

A compact step-up alternative

You know those days when it’s well overhead and sweeping, and you feel like you could be riding a board that’s about a foot longer and 1/4” thicker to be able to nab the goodies that always seem to be just out of reach? …but then, once on the wave face, you don’t want all the extra nose length of a true gun getting clipped by the lip while you’re navigating through the barrel? Whatever can we do?

This video features Australian style guru Jarrah Tutton hucking buckets at a thumpy sandbank in Oz riding his 6’0” x 19” x 2 9/16” 29.5L Holy Roller. Jarrah is 6’0”/175 lbs.

That’s what this board is for: paddles like a gun, but in a compact length. Using a fuller nose outline, wide point forward, a swept back tail, and volume down the center and under the chest. Medium to lower volume rails to keep it knifey and responsive, edgy and thinned out in the tail to draw surgical lines with flow. So, in conditions where you might normally require a 6’3” – 6’4” step-up, you would ride this; 4-6” inches shorter with same paddle yet way easier to stuff up tighter in the barrel and rail steeper in the hook.

Just shaped it:
First of its kind for a local Ventura surfer named Brennan. It’s a step-up for a hollow rare gem point that roars to life every now and again. The outline is that of the #Holyrollersurfboard / #monstasurfboard i.e. fuller in the nose to roll in early, swept back roundpin to sit easy crispy in the tube; subtle beak nose; low volume rails to knife into the wave face while the lip pitches out; thickness down the center and under the chest to motor around a wide open playing field; a single to double #Jetstreamsurfboard hydrofoilesque hull; with parabolic inset compression chamber sluiceboxes with side channels that split off sustaining a four pack of glass-on bonzers; capped off with a small center box to hold a five incher…I’ll keep you posted as she gets lammed up, finned up and generally comes all together. I’ve found that by scalloping the sluicebox concaves to follow the outline through the midsection of the board and then angle them to a compression transition zone through the fins, creates this huge wide open sweet spot from under the front foot through the entire board, and the added water flow heading into the fins creates a dynamic vortex enabling the board to generate even higher levels of turbulent-smoothing speeds than previous jet stream / sluicebox combinations. It will be very interesting to see what all this does with the added leverage and surface areas of a bonzer fin setup as well. Keep ya posted mates…

It was on a dry and dusty wind blown street: When the the stranger clicked his spurs and waited for the tumbleweed to blow by. One eyebrow raised, he stared a thousand mile stare. Then he said, “Draw!” The #holyrollersurfboard and @petemendia like a peacemaker and a wild west gunslinger.
6’6” x 19 1/4” x 2 3/4” 37L does what a 7’6” gun can do, but in a stouter, more compact shape. Kinda like a sawed off shotgun for conditions that require step-ups and guns.
