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.

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’...
