scarecrow.pngscary? no. this skinny-tailed-swabby is the way to go. Todd, after his first session on it, “…it felt like butter in a boiling hot pan…I think I did the best layback turn of my life on that board.”

This is the fastest trim speed board ever. Ideal for pointbreaks, this board has incredible drive and projection down the line due to the fuller nose outline and low entry rocker. The narrowness of the winged swallowtail makes it super responsive rail-to-rail allowing it to turn on a dime even if your back foot isn’t right on the tail. The bottom features an even single concave running the length of the board with double concaves inset through the fin cluster….this gives the Scarecrow perfect hold complemented by full tilt speed. Runs typically with two larger side fins and small trailer, but can also be ridden as a thruster; or with a five fin plug set-up to run as quad or thruster.

Ride this board six inches shorter and one inch wider than your normal good waves shortboard.

FIN CONFIGURATION: large M.R. style twins, or large twins with small trailer, thruster, or as a five fin options to ride as any of those as well as quad.

WAVE PREFERENCES: small to medium sized pointbreaks; knee high to head high.

AVAILABLE TAIL CONFIGURATIONS: single wing swallowtail or roundtail

RECOMMENDED RIDER TYPES: intermediate to expert

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’...
