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...

This just in: @keepittropical dreamweaving through timetunnels in the land down under. 6’0” x 19” x 2 9/16” 29L #holyrollersurfboard 
Jarrah is 5’11”, 175Lbs. 
@salty_crew @yeti 

The Holy Roller is a fuller nosed, swept back and pulled in tail for getting deep in slabby tubes. It allows you to ride a shorter, more compact board in bigger waves. As opposed to a traditional step-up that would have more rail line and be like 6-12 inches longer. It holds volume down the center and through the the chest, and tops off with a groovy subtle beak nose to spark in early.

After a 2 year hiatus from doing board breakdowns, mostly just due to being inundated with boards, I’ve decided to make it a point (due to repeated requests) to break down the latest brainstorms and board models and design ideas as they hit me. Here’s an in-depth look at the Falcon 2 & Falcon 3, a versatile groveler and performance shortboard 2-pack that revisit the reverse vee design of the early 90’s, reimagined in an extreme format complemented by a high-powered deeply concaved engine through the fins. #falcon2surfboard #falcon3surfboard
