Outer Island Mitchell Rae V2 Flex Flextail

A Outer Island Mitchell Rae V2 Flex Flextail just landed on our secondhand rack over the weekend – u certainly don’t get one of these in here very often!  Hand shaped by Mitchell Rae this one is a 8’4″ x 22″ x 3″ that sits somewhere between a performance mini mal and a hybrid gun. Constructed using V2 Flex – Mitchell Rae’s innovate construction, that controls the overall flex pattern of a surfboard. It uses 2 angular stringers places in an inverted V shape  from the nose and finish on the rail just forward of the fins which allows the tail of the board to flex.  This strategically placed flex through the tail of the board allows the board to draw considerably tighter arcs, it also gives you significantly greater hold on the wave.  The flex in the tail also means that the tail loads up to deliver bursts of speed out of the turns. Come and check this and other secondhand surfboards out instore or...

Second Hand Danny Hess Singer Fish

We have just had a Second Hand Danny Hess Singer Fish dropped off to sell on our racks.  You don’t see many of these around in Australia that’s for sure! The Singer is a design that was created by Hess in collaboration with film maker, and artist Thomas Campbell. They both share a love for Quad fish designs and were playing around searching for the ultimate quad fish – a design that can go places on the wave that others don’t seem to want too. The Singer is their answer. A departure from the full outline, low rockered, more traditional quads. They have put a streamlined outline together with aprogressive rocker and a pulled in nose and tail to create a shape that can really perform in tighter pocket transitions and more powerful surf. Constructed out of Hess Full Wood Technology – each board has been built custom by Danny Hess with artwork and color work designed by Thomas Campbell. Come and check it out instore or...
