SUPERABOUND

A “good waves” dream board

Journeyman’s Two Pack
In this episode of American Surfboard Factory, Todd explains the dynamics of a hi-fi two-board quiver for the traveling journeyman, as well as addressing the quad vs. tri-fin question, poly vs. epoxy, some fresh new thoughts on green approaches to board construction, the benefits of building boards to a quantifiable actual demand, and why personalized equipment is good for the environment.

Peter Mendia: Boards for the Journey
Heading to good waves? There's still nothing like the responsiveness of a high performance shortboard when conditions call for it. Pete is 6'1"/195lb and rides a 6'1" x 19 1/4" x 2 5/8" 32L Superabound, G4-71 HD, and Shalomic Intervention.

All Hail the Underground
An ode to the unidentified who rush it from the gut… A journeyman named Pierce hits the road and finds satisfaction.
Here’s a guy named Pierce from Oxnard who got himself a three-pack of fresh customs and went looking for barrels. Here’s what he found...All hail the underground, the unidentified, those who rush it from the gut.

Lacerator.pngA “good waves” dream board. Plenty of rocker with a consistent bend from nose to tail, and lots of concave running the length of the board. The best ‘trip’ board I make, or for when your local spot gets top to bottom.

  • Features continuous curve throughout with a steady-running single-to-inset-double concave
  • SuperAbound from the greek word hupernike, to excel still more

 

Superabound step-up

For gettin’ barrelled. More foam down the middle and under the chest to be able to chase down deep water peaks, and lower volume rails to knife into the wave face. Go get yourself the best view in the house.

Plenty of rocker with a consistent bend from nose to tail, and lots of concave running the length of the board.

This is the #Flyinzionsurfboard it uses the rocker This is the #Flyinzionsurfboard it uses the rocker and bottom of the uber-groveller #Pavarottisurfboard and combines it with a high performance shortboard outline from the #Superaboundsurfboard but with the nose and tail slightly wider and the wide point moved to center for a quick-drivey grippy little nimble number. This is my friend Ricky, arguably the best surfer in the 52 yrs young category...but I don’t like to argue...
