SuperBrand PigDog now instore

We have just got a full size run of the SuperBrand PigDog now instore! The SuperBrand Pigdog is a short/wide board that will handle steeper & bigger conditions than most shortboards – a bit like a step up without adding extra length, and without getting too gunny. It has a smooth curvy outline with a wider nose and a tidy pulled in tail – designed to make it a perfect fit for steeper/curvier parts of the wave, which makes life a lot easier in more critical situations like late take offs, pulling in under the lip or sucky sections.  Created with laying down big carves on big open faces or hunting down tubes in mind – the SuperBrand PigDog is a great board for good waves at home or to take to the tropics.  Also works a treat on the open beaches down the Peninsula/Island with its extra paddle power and hold. The PigDog can definitely replace a stepup and is an easy board to transition onto from a shorter/wider shortboard. Come and check out the PigDog instore or ONLINE  (each board will be uploaded...

FCS II MB PC Carbon

The FCS II MB PC Carbon is a great all-round thruster set.  This particular fin template is a great choice for large/strong surfers in their day to day board, or for lighter surfers riding boards with wider tails. These Matt ‘Mayhem’ Biolos signature template fins deliver a lively combination of drive, hold and maneuverability. This versatile fin holds it’s own both out on the face and in steeper parts of the wave.  When compared to a standard fin template (eg the Performer L template) this fin has a touch more  area in the bottom half , while being a little bit more upright (ie less rake) with less area in the top half.  This equates to a slightly tighter & snappier turning circle, while still maintaining hold and drive from the area in the bottom half. Fin Specs Base:  4.41″ / 112mm Depth:  4.74″ / 120mm Area:  15.26″² / 9847mm² Sweep:  32.9º Foil:  Flat Come check them out/grab a set from us instore or...
