Developed specifically for heavier surfers and/or those that surf more off their rail; this is the shortboard you can rip on and not sink on. Heavier surfers and those that grew up surfing during the 80’s era tend to surf more with their rails than off their fins. So the fuller rails of this design are essential for a board that “pushes back” and drives through turns. Increased volume, especially under the chest, affords ease in paddling. A versatile rocker and a single-to-double concave bottom generates incredible speed in the small stuff, yet maintains the essential responsiveness for quick direction changes in the pocket. There’s a slight vee off the back fin that gives the board a positive directional hold through turns.

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.
