For those of you who like the Monsta, this is a high performance shortboard counterpart to that design. I’ve kept the rocker and bottom contours the same as that of the Monsta….so same speed, same positive flow…The outline, rail volume and deck foil is more “shortboardy, but with the wide point moved slightly forward & a bit fuller nose outline than a standard “needled out” perfect waves shortboard. The rails are less full than that of the Monsta; more pulled down, but boxy in shape.
 
You ride this board 1 – 2 inches shorter, about a 1/4 inch wider, & the same thickness as your “shortboard for perfect waves”.
A great all-around high performance shortboard that doesn’t require perfect waves to feel perfect under your feet.
  • FIN CONFIGURATION: thruster or five fin option to ride as tri or quad
  • WAVE PREFERENCES: A great all-around high performance shortboard that doesn’t require perfect waves to feel perfect under your feet
  • AVAILABLE TAIL CONFIGURATIONS: wide rounded squash, wide hip-squash, swallowtail, round/thumbtail
  • RECOMMENDED RIDER TYPES: Intermediate to advanced

A Word from the shaper:

Here’s my friend Andrew, blasting the lip on his backhand. As a grom, growing up, Andrew was one of the legends I looked up to. His smooth Tom Curren-esque style and raw Archie-like lip hacks inspired me. Here’s to all the core locals out there like Andrew; the type of guys that surf all day as long as there’s waves – a surfer through adn through.

Nailed it!

Wow, that board is exactly what I was hoping for. Nailed it! Rad. Thanks so...

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’...
