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.

Three cheers for the people. Those who have worked at diners or construction yards, have hung drywall, or pounded nails till blisters bled; the head down eyes focused sweat brow of a landscaper in 100 degree humid mosquito brush; the teased security guard at the mall walking a beat while absorbing the put downs from rich shoppers...all to save up enough coin to get some good boards and a ticket to somewhere they saw in The Surfers Journal
...where they will work as a surf guide or yoga instructor, or break bricks, or whatever it takes...no putting it away for a rainy day or a security net for the future...the brave souls living in the now...whether it be getting away for a weekend, 10 days, a month or a year, wherever it may be and even if it’s in your own backyard....go explore, find an empty peak, and relax as you square up off the bottom, take it all in just before it boxes out and you stand where time stands still just in that limitless moment. This is Dylan, he’s one of the people. Transfixed in the moment at P-Pass last week.
