This squatty firebrand has all the speed of a retro-style shape, but with the holding power of a modern board. Using a bulby outline with a flatter rocker, full boxy rails, and new generation hull contours;

it loves to rocket on 2 foot gutless days when most people are running for their longboards.

This design has better traction than your typical retro-style speeders. Should be ridden 5” inches shorter and 1” wider than your standard shortboard.

This is the fastest, funnest board I make for those of you who find yourselves surfing in small, weak, mushy, slopey, sectiony pointbreak waves ala 1st point Malibu, Leo Carrillo, Churches, etc…  You don’t have to ride a longboard on those days anymore 🙂

Check out the Rascal Movie to watch how the Lil’ Rascal will have you flying past the longboarders at your favorite spot.

  • FIN CONFIGURATION: thruster or five fin option to ride as tri or quad
  • WAVE PREFERENCES:small, weak, mushy, slopey, sectiony pointbreak surf
  • AVAILABLE TAIL CONFIGURATIONS: Swallowtail, roundtail, moontail
  • RECOMMENDED RIDER TYPES: beginner to 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
