…Lost V2 Shortboards back in stock

We have just got a bunch of …Lost V2 Shortboards back in stock.  Last time we had a quiver of these on the rack they didn’t last for long on the racks at all.  The V2 Shortboard features a low rocker up front for easy entry into waves, speed of the mark with heaps of acceleration and drive off front foot. When coupled with a generous amount of rocker through the tail , this makes for an extremely quick, snappy board to surf . The curvaceous outline and smallish tail block allows this board to fit comfortably into steeper sections – giving this board a great wave range and really making it come alive in good conditions.  If you after a responsive performance shortboard that’ll work well in Victorian waves – these are definitely worth a look. Check them out instore or...

Futures WCT HC

The Futures WCT HC – is one of the more upright fins in the Futures range.  Designed with peaky beachbreaks in mind this pivoty fin is very conducive to quick direction changes and a top to bottom, vertical approach. The trailing fin of this thruster set is also slightly smaller in area – making the side fins a little more dominant, adding a touch of extra release off the top.  In a similar vane to the FCSII Reactor this fin can be particularly useful in flatter rockered surfboards – if you are finding it hard to draw the arcs you want on a flatter board, these can really help you tighten up your turning circle.  Popular with those who like to do tight, snappy maneuvers tight in the pocket of the wave, rather than running out onto the open face to carve big, drawn out arcs. Size: Medium Side fins: Height: 4.50″ Base: 4.37″ Area: 14.89″   Center fin: Height: 4.35″ Base: 4.25″ Area: 14.10″ Check them out Instore or grab a set...
