/ˌyo͞okəˈtastrəfē/ - when catastrophic circumstances are hijacked and some form of good triumphs. It's “the sudden joyous turn.” The eucatastrophe says that just when all hope appears to be lost, just when circumstances cannot get much bleaker, hope emerges.

This board design is Todd's quest to take a weapon of mass destruction and re-imagine it into a blueprint for accelerating new speeds into your surfboard. Illustrating how, at times, what was meant for evil can be used for good.

Case Study: 51 year old grom

One shaper's quest to take a weapon of mass destruction and re-imagine it into a blueprint for accelerating new speeds into your surfboard. Illustrating how, at times, what was meant for evil can be used for good.

Inspiration to attain to; some recent cam rewinds extolling the eternal grommet-hood of Ricky Schaffer.

You’ve heard it said, “Ah the pro’s can ride anything...those guys could ride a door...they could rip on an ironing board.”
But what about, say, just a normal, core guy who loves to surf. What does equipment mean for them? Here’s a Surfline cam rewind follow up on the Zipstajet/Zipstitch hull design (from our last episode entitled “What was meant for evil”) with our athlete being a 51 year old Southern California male, who rips but is not pro, and who definitely spends his fair share of time in the water...because he simply loves surfing. This is Ricky from Oceanside surfing somewhere up in L.A.

ZipstaJet swallow

The latest iteration of our most oft loved “Monsta” model; a favorite for many years. It uses the centerline rocker of the Zipstitch with the outline of a swallowtail Monsta, the exaggeratedly deep and multi-scalloped concaves of the Jetstream and four short channels running off the tail. A nitrous speeder with regulatable turbulence smoothing capacities at top speed … a board that never redlines, but the faster it goes the smoother she runs.

ROUNDTAIL:

Great for more hold in the steeper part of the wave for drawing carving figure-eight turns and for increased hold in the barrel. The perfect power surfer/beachbreaks/reef breaks tail shape.

squash

Same as the swallow, but instead of using short channels with a swallowtail, it uses a flip in the rocker of the back fin complemented by a squashtail for a more snappier in the pocket controlled tail release feel in turns. Both boards are made out of our proprietary epoxy construction using strategic carbon reinforcements. Never outsourced / no popouts. Made by hand, custom, in the free world.

roundtail

Great for more hold in the steeper part of the wave for drawing carving figure-eight turns and for increased hold in the barrel. The perfect power surfer/beachbreaks/reef breaks tail shape.

shaper’s note:

My current favorite all around high performance shortboard. Super fast, super drivey, makes everything fun. I just always grab this now everytime I surf.

Finally got a few weeks of surfing done in September on my new board (after longest European flat spell for 20 years!).

I was pretty sure Todd couldn't top my blue 'Ziptsajet' for a magic board, but I had a few waves on my newie that had me scratching my head trying to figure out how the V2 delivers all that extra 'ZING'??!!! Love it...tell him he nailed it with that one!

Stay well and free in our new mad world!”

Remember that part at the end of the Matrix when the A.I. machines were coming for Neo and Trinity and Morpheus aboard the Nebuchadnezzar? It seemed against all odds that the walls of the Matrix could fall... lik but then they did. Could this have been a prophetic message to us to never give up hope and to believe that there are powers much greater than the cold electronic eyes of the system? I think so. It’s what I was thinking of when I painted this board...for Mauricio from Florida.
