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

Tubes, tubes and more tubes. Barrels and buckets and buckets of barrels. In Hawaii, in Mexico, in Australia where they’ve all gone feral. Shacks at dawn and dusk, even under moonlight and threat of the musky musk and the tusky tusk. Barrels for beebops and toddlers and grownups. We’ll navigate the future with religious zeal, riding holy rollers and watery chariots following on @keepittropical ‘s heels 6'1" x 19" x 2 9/16" 31L #holyrollersurfboard

I’ve always admired the surfers that go to the places where everybody else isn’t. Watching the swell charts and the winds and tides, getting intel from the boots on the sand underground expats. Waiting till the masses flock to the next tour stop to pull the trigger on going to an off season under the radar swell that’s the farthest away from the melee. @petemendia seems to have always had a certain penchant for watching the wheels go round and round, no longer riding on the merry go round. People think he’s crazy doing what he’s doing (that was the Beetles btw) …but when you find empty peaks that are guttering out and running down the trench for tubes longer and deeper and emptier than a world that’s got it’s focus diverted away from the mystique of adventure basqued in solitude…that’s where you’ll find the yeti. Here he rides a 7’8” x 19 1/4” x 2 7/8” #Pipecleanersurfboard with orange air spray, black racy rails, glassed strong, with plenty of paddle power, carbon for strength, shallow single to double concaves to vee, and a quad to get an extra gear of speed to roll right through three foam balls, eight speed bumps and four chandeliers on the way to an exit 100 yards from where you pulled in.

Backhand carve in Da Islands by @petemendia 
6’3” x 19 1/4” x 2 11/16” 32.5L #Flyinlionsurfboard roundtail slight step-up in poly construction. This model is currently our most popular high performance step-up. It threads barrels, yet does in the pocket like a shortboard. Glide in paddle so you get in early. It has heavy concaves through the fins that provide for a clampy grip off the bottom that holds and drives into the lip with maximum drive. It’s snappy with controlled release through carves too. So if your looking for which step-up out of all my different shapes this winter this is the one for that overhead+ ripping range.
