elPavote-logo.pngBest summed up – easy speed with maximum hold for performance surfing. El Pavote is basically the Falcon model with all the spiral vee through the back half of the board shaped out of the bottom; and replaced with a deep even single concave with subtle doubles running the length of the back 1/3 of the rocker and off the tail block. So….what all that technical jargon means practically is that the El Pavote has more hold off your back foot so you can leave the gas at full throttle through turns, push on it as hard as you like and it will push back and redirect with smooth positive drive not unlike the speed with which demons got the boot from God’s heavenly kingdom at the dawn of time. Ride this board 4-5 inches shorter and 3/4” wider than your standard good waves shortboard.

You can get this board with the Apache tail, the swallow tail, the diamond tail, or the rounded diamond winger tail.

For effortless skating in weak waves whilst performing devastating fin hucks and buckets like a riot-quelling water cannon.  Ride this board 4-5 inches shorter and 3/4” wider than your standard good waves shortboard.

You can get this board with the Apache tail, the swallow tail, the diamond tail, or the rounded diamond winger tail.

Oh snap! ...(or I should say, “Holy long sweeping elegant arcs!”) - The #Holyrollersurfboard outline and rails has fused with the #Falconv2surfboard rocker and bottom for an extreme reverse vee to deep spiral tri-fecta concaves, future forward millenial kingdom kinda glide groove to bucket town. For Eric to get pitted and displace tub size chunks on setting #2 at Kelly’s pool.

10 years ago when I first went to El Salvador, this local kid was 11 years old and lived right on the point with his family. There was literally nothing around; a very humble existence, I’d imagine life had not been lived too much differently for hundreds of years at that stretch of beach. I remember Bryan and his brothers would take turns going over the falls on old brown boards that looked like they had been broken and ramshackle fixed a hundred times. They would scamper around hooting barefoot on the beach, and hunting down coconuts to share for hydration. I ran into him and his brothers on this latest trip and here’s how Bryan surfs now! He tried one of my personal boards I brought down and he went to town ...and, all the brothers have grown into fine, responsible young men that are quick to share a smile and pass on solid aloha vibes. Did you know that “El Salvador” means ‘The Saviour’. And “La Libertad” means ‘Liberty’...
