The Skinny

This board was originally intended as a groveller or mid-range shortboard for Peter, but as fate would have it; he snapped his step-up after getting some mean hurricane shacks…and had the 6’0” as the only other board he had brought to the beach that day. The heavy concaves for grip coupled with the self-adjusting rocker of the carbon footprint technology allowed the board to form fit to the barrel and hang on and handle in the midst of a superstorm…a testament to the versatility of this shape. Stay tuned for more Mendia shredding also in “normal waves” …coming soon from this same little piggy.

Surfer Feedback

“The Greased Pig is one of my go-to shapes … super easy board to ride..then add the carbon rail and you can push it as hard as you want without breaking it. Epic board.” – Peter Mendia
