apex-swd

An all-around high performance shortboard; a conglomeration of design aspects from the Blackbird, Super-Typhoon and Ghost models all synthesized into one versatile compact shape.

The entry rocker is lower like that of the Ghost, allowing for early entry into waves and quick speed down the line. The rocker is surprisingly steep through the midsection of the board; the apex of the rocker peaking at dead center….much like that of the Supertypoon; this gives the board a nice swivelly almost ball-bearing like feel, immediately climbing it high and tight straight into the lippy power part of the wave.

The concaves are heavy throughout and increase in depth as the water runs through the bottom of the board…..this creates incredible speed, but with 100% hold no matter how hard you push it off the bottom or through turns. Has a nice progressive release out of the back of the wave when you want it to though.

The Apex is typically ridden the same height as the surfer, and a touch wider (1/8″ – 1/4″) than a good waves/ travel shortboard. If you’re favorite travel board/ “good waves” board is the blackbird or supertyphoon then you will love this model as it’s the ‘everyday’ performance version.

This is a good airboard with lots of speed down the line and likes to project out of the lip.

The vortex behind the vortex: We’re not talking about the multiverse, or chaos theory, or string theory, or black holes…we’re talking about gettin’ straight blown out from the river trench that exists behind the foamball, traversing over the wash ball and getting time compressed as you experience the womb again; Jarrah gets born again somewhere on the Goldy.

Be afraid, be very afraid, stay home, get out of the sunshine, watch the tv, and whatever you do don’t go surf, sunlight is bad, exercise is dangerous, causes too much breathing in, etc, etc…our natural footed brother Jarrah from Oz continues to break the algorithms, and gets the heart beating during yesterday’s saltwater / vitamin D / ion soak at Kirra. Funny what amazing things can happen when you get that ‘ol heart muscle pumping out some strong healthy blood. Maybe that’s why the traditional hearty Aussie’s call it a bloody good time!!?!?

Today’s resin art as an expression from the heart: 
When my soul aches, my spirit asks for inspiration. Something one-of-a-kind; something dynamic; something sublime. To take a present darkness and generate it into prisms of splendor. A gift, a sacrifice of self; to transfer from spiraling down to that hole in the ground where I hide, to soaring above the treelines and the clouds; pouring out like a drink offering to the crowds confronted with sackloth and ashes.

Twas the day after Christmas, when Kepa paddled out. Not a contest was happening, not even at Pipe. When all of a sudden, a red-capped kid began to whir, like a candy cane forest all a’blur. There were fins out, and thick-buckets, and laybacks galore. Seems an extra day of Christmas had come to the North Shore.
