Kookaburra.pngNamed after a noisy, brightly colored bird from Australia; this board is designed to generate crazy speed at the drop of a hat, yet perform all the radical high flyin’ maneuvers of a high performance shortboard. A very versatile board that will take you wherever you wanna go whether it’s two foot and mushy or overhead and pumpin’. Jarrah Tutton, my friend from Australia, described this board to me and asked if I’d craft up one of these colorful little birds. This is that board. A fast, fun board that flies in everything from two foot trash to pushy good waves….and it loves to fly…airs, fins out the back, up up and away with style.

Ideal conditions: A very versatile board that will take you wherever you wanna go whether it’s two foot and mushy or overhead and pumpin’

Experience: intermediate through advanced.

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
