Board of the Day – installment 2

Hi Crew. Back with another of our ‘board of the day’ posts introducing you all to some of the new stock we have in for summer. Today we are taking a look at a model and brand all the way from San Diego. Zakka came across Sharp Eye Surfboards when he went into a factory to meet Larry Mabile who does Third World Exotic boards (which we also have in stock). He reckons it was probably the most pristine factory he has ever walked into and the boards we have in stock reflect this – the finish on them are flawless. The shaper behind Sharp Eye is Marcio Zouvi who established the brand in 1993. Although relatively young, Marcio has a bunch of WQS guys on board including Fisher Heverly and Oliver Kurtz. Check the Sharp Eye website here:     We have a quiver of Marcio’s Disco model which is a high performance small wave board.

Zak has already briefly introduced you all to some of the new summer board models we have received recently and I just wanted to bring you all up to speed with one of the best we have in store at the moment – the JR Voodoo. We all know summer can be a bit of a bummer for waves but it doesn’t have to be if you have a board that allows you to get the most out of the summer months. JR calls this his performance fish but that description doesn’t really do this board justice. It’s full through the nose for super easy paddling but unlike a lot of other stubby small wave boards, the Voodoo is about as snappy as you are going to get. The flattened out rocker means it is super fast and the extra width will get you through the dead sections with ease. Here is what JR himself has to say about the new model: “Designed with high performance in mind, the Voodoo comes standard as a tri-quad set up for versitility. The Voodoo has a flat entry rocker to a very flat tail rocker. Its plan shape being wide...
