Performance Longboard

The performance longboard features additional rocker, sleeker outline, and more tapered responsive rails. The bottom utilizes a concave in the nose for increased lift in noseriding, which transitions to a double concave through the mid-section of the board, then to a concave vee or “spiral vee” through the fins and last 1/3 of the board.

Nobody wants to ride a longboard that feels like it’s pushing water.

So, I’ve kept this design with a bit of that traditional trim speed concept alive and kicking…enabling you to set it on rail and glide and walk the nose. This is done primarily with what’s called a three stage rocker, or bottom curve profile which has a pretty low entry with just enough curve up front to make the late take-offs on bigger and hollower days, and the ability  to make a nice steep redirecting bottom turn…..smooth like butter…not margarin.

The mid-section has a flatter run through it…this is where the flow and trim speed come from.

Finally the last third of the board I have a pretty sweeping crisp and loose tail rocker to keep her nice and responsive. The bottom contours consist of a good amount of nose concave the front 36” for grip and lift during tip-time. The midsection splits to a double concave or tri-plane hull configuration that flows into a pronounced spiral vee apexing at the fin cluster…this let’s her lay over rail-to-rail real nice…drivey like, but not slippy…nice and positive redirectional flow that gains speed out of turns…that’s the beauty of concaves.

I put a subtle chime or bevel out where the concaves hit the rail…this keeps the board from feeling sticky and let’s the water release out of the concaves and jump off the rails keeping the board nice and forgiving out of turns.

This board blends a bit of the old world with the new. A lot of times performance longboards lose all their performance because they have way too much rocker/ bottom curve to make them practical….unless your only surfing bowly beachbreak…and c’mon …really…? Larry Ugale demonstrates.

Stoked surfer reports: this just in >> “Hey Charissa/Todd, 

Gotta tell you about how well the HPLB has been going. I love that board so much. Had it out in this last Big swell. Had the board in some serious overhead sets.  This board has helped me get real good at high-lining and making sections. Had the most insane drop on a massive set, on the bottom turn, i'm looking up at the wave just throwing so hard. The fin/rails bite and boom, I'm high in the face hitting the lip and making the section going so fast. Made three insane sections on that 250 meter ride.

This board has grown with my surfin just like you said it would. 

LOVE IT!”
