Flyin’ Lion

A board that has a feeling of continuous on-rail motion taking natural lines that run cross-grain to the natural pull of the water flow on the wave face; letting you gain drive by a board that intrinsically wants to go hard on rail and turn grippy yet responsive in the steepest parts of the wave.

The Flyin’ Lion places the steepest point of the rocker between the center of the board and the front fins, making for an extreme bubble or apex point in the curve of the board between the feet. Both the stringerline rocker, rail line rocker and outline have the majority of curve placed behind center and through the back of the board. Complemented by a lower entry rocker just ahead of the front foot, accelerated sweeping tail rocker and a jetstream concave cutting through the back half of the board, bisecting the added extreme rocker in the tail.

This creates a board with the feeling of a giant ball-bearing between the feet.

The entire concept is as if you took a reverse vee rail line but then cut through all the hull contours with one deep deep accelerating jeststream concave that reaches its deepest point at the front fins. A board that has a feeling of continuous on-rail motion taking natural lines that run cross-grain to the natural pull of the water flow on the wave face; letting you gain drive by a board that intrinsically wants to go hard on rail and turn grippy yet responsive in the steepest parts of the wave.

"Hey buddy I just want to let you know that board is ridiculous!!! It really carries speed well down the line and it’s really everything I can ask for out of a board that size.
It’s almost as if the less I try the faster it goes as far as Malibu is concerned anyway. I’m going to Indo in September.
Can I order three more boards please...
1. I want to get on exact replica of the board you just made me

2. 6’1” short board (pulled in squash)

3. 5’11” squash

Thanks Todd I'm super stoked!"

“All my boards are still intact and going mental. I love all of them. I am currently packing to go to ***** right now … strike mission to ***** if all goes to plan. Big swell coming. I’m bringing the step up and the Shalomic.
Both have been going cosmic 👌
I always ride the pipsqeak when it’s just fun rippable size and it is so good it doesn’t feel like it’s even there. So connected. When the waves pump I ride the Shalomic, then when it's big I step it up with the quad. Beautiful quiver 🙌

Instagram post 17912569315043194 Throwback Thursday: There’s all these pictures tacked up throughout the factory. They’ve gathered over the 17 years we’ve been here and look much like a sort of wallpaper in spots...kinda like the inside of a kids clubhouse or something...this one in the lam room had me studying the other day since it was a one-off experimental design from years ago back when @whoisjob was a QS warrior. He randomly showed up at the factory and was like, “I️ have no boards”...and Cali was going off. In fact the spot closest to my house; and a rare gem was going richter. There were a few different boards that were his dims, but I️ gave him the experimental one rather than plucking one of the ‘conventional’ ones. This ended up being on the cover of a vhs video that was made from that session that day by a local legend filmer /photographer from here named Dean Hotch. And Jaime took that board and a couple others and went on to a final that year in France. All the history aside, I️ remembered just this week when I️ saw that pic and dusted off the resin caked layer from it...that that thing was an early early #Shalomicintervention that I’ve finally revisited in the design realm after all these years. Funny thing time is....

Interesting bit of ripper trivia for y’all...Remember that movie with Nicholas Cage called ‘The Rock’? Well it turns out that @petemendia loves to quote (out loud) the line, “I take pleasure in guttin’ you boy” while doing this particular turn. All with a gutteral snarl and a bit of spittle. I’ve heard it. I’ve seen it. Now, do you believe this story to be true?

Just shaped it: 6'0" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/8" 27.3L #ShalomicIntervention for Tommy, super-ripper from the EC. This is a new board model that reflects an ideological concept I've been contemplating lately during long shaping stints. It emanates from an ancient word, shalom; a word I've heard before but never really knew what it meant so I did a bit of research and discovered that it's kind of like peace ✌️... the definition of peace means the abscense of conflict. Shalom is defined as perfect peace not through a lack of conflict, but as in all things operating in perfect harmony... as in the way they were originally intended. It made me think of the decisions we make every day. Whether we put ourselves first and demand outcomes a certain way; sometimes even by trying to put down others to get ouselves ahead...and our actions towards other people...do we desire to see the best brought out in others? Or do we try to keep people down by the use of our actions and our words? Some say the fittest survive, kill or be killed...but where does that leave us as a whole in the end? I think we have two choices all the time at any given time...to be a fragrance of life that builds others up or a force for destruction that tears others down. It's as if everyone throughout all history is connected; is a part of an immense instrument...each of us a string that echoes a certain reverberation with each thought and action we pursue. Those reverberations echo out and ripple an effect towards peace, towards shalom, or towards chaos...and everyone effects the tune that plays as a whole. This board is a latest attempt at a tune that wants to find that perfect balance of design elements that works to bring a note of shalom echoing into the future. ...
