Just arrived today from Firwire a quiver of potatonators from 5’4 to 6’0 first in best dressed, will have demos next week.
The “Stealth”…. is a high performance, secret weapon hybrid formulated by “hiding” our …Lost “Rocket” model into the guise of a pointed nose performance short board. Team riders (“Pros”) were stoked on “The Rockets” performance in small surf but were afraid to use in contests for fear of negative reaction from judges. At the same time, the “Bros” were asking for a “Short board that surfs like the Rocket” so I can ride a pointed nose outline. Viola! The combination of extreme tail rocker and deep concave provide lift and unparalleled turning radius. The Low entry rocker with a traditional pulled in nose template allows performance short board antics with the speed of a “fish”. Full rails and wide tail keep everything easy to use for everyone. Available now in FST technology as a 5 fin “convertible”. Finally, there’s a board that can be “everything for everyone”
The “Sub Scorcher” I wanna board for ‘mush’. Something short and wide, but still a hi performance shortboard….something like Dane’s board”, Kolohe Andino.
The challenge was laid down. Starting with the old SD, we squashed the dims to 5’6″ x 19 3/4″ x 2 3/16″, lowered the entry rocker and shallowed out the concave through the center to straighten the rail line (for drive) and made it easier to lay such a wide platform over on a rail. Voila! Our stubbiest shortboard yet, but it still carves like a real board. Kolohe wanted to call it “The Trashcan Lid” because you don’t need to go dumpster diving to get one of these.
Demo in store : STEALTH 6’0 X 19 1/2 X 2 5/16
SUB SCORCHER: 6’2 X 20 1/2 X 2 5/8
For all you big boys out there these two boards are for you, we have both of them on demo so give us a call and give them a go.
