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.

shaper breakdown


A “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.
