Embracing the best of both worlds, this performance shortboard design blends the speed and skatiness of a wider diamond tail, with the tight carving characteristics of a more pulled in round tail. The toe side features a shorter rail line, but has more planing surface and less curve. Its combination of design features promote efficiency in all aspects. The bottom shape consists of panel V entry with inverted V cut into it, effectively straightening the center entry rocker curve while retaining the advantages of the raised rail line entry for late takeoffs. It then transitions to an offset single concave that is deepest under the toe side that eventually evens out to flat at the tail tip. The heel side tail rocker has a generous amount of curve that accelerates around the fins, shortening its turning radius and enabling tighter carves. The Bumper is a highly reliable shortboard capable of connecting maneuvers in open faced waves, as well as handling steep takeoffs and navigating in tubes.

This design is focused on high performance shortboard style surfing. The diamond nose and diamond tail give the board a short rail line in comparison to its actual overall length. This allows the board to surf tight in the pocket, while still keeping the outline relatively parallel for speed in a straight line. This shape can be customized and altered for specific wave types and conditions. The quad fin placement gives the board a tight turning arc and grip through hooks in the pocket.

This design was conceptualized with Ryan Burch for Stab’s “Electric Acid Surfboard Test” featuring Mick Fanning. As demonstrated by Mick, this design is focused on keeping speed through carves, and surfing tight in the pocket of the wave with control. Its asymmetric outline, twisted rocker, offset bottom shape, offset rail shapes, and skewed quad fin placements all work together to help the board generate speed from the toe side, and control speed from the heel side. Its bottom shape consists of panel V entry, with inverted V cut into the panel V in order to straighten the center entry rocker curve while still keeping the benefits of the raised rail line entry intact for late takeoffs. It then transitions to an offset single concave of which is deepest under the toe side that eventually evens out to flat at the tail tip. The toe side fins are placed slightly further back and closer to the rail in order to mimic a feeling closer to that of a twin on the toe side. The heel side fins are placed further up, further away from the rail, and more spread apart in order to help give the board more control when leaning on the heel side in critical parts of the wave.

While keeping an emphasis on the speed generating elements that are so inherent in the classic fish concept, this design also incorporates some elements that foster the ability to draw lines more reminiscent to that of a high performance shortboard. Its bottom shape consists of panel V entry with inverted V cut into it, effectively straightening the center entry rocker curve while retaining the advantages of the raised rail line entry for late takeoffs. It then transitions to a full inverted V bottom from rail to rail through the fins, and it eventually evens out to flat off the tail tips.

This design draws inspiration from the Quegg but is suited more specifically for larger, rounder waves and emphasizes a more performance-oriented approach. With its increased outline curve, forward widepoint, ample rocker curve, and quad fin setup, this design excels in maintaining control during critical situations. The bottom consists of a panel V entry with inverted V cut into it, effectively straightening the center entry rocker curve while retaining the advantages of the raised rail line entry for late takeoffs. Transitioning to a spiral V around the fins, it eventually evens out to flat off the tail tip.

I shaped the first version of this design as part of a quiver to take to Indonesia in 2022. This design is focused on vertical surfing, breaking free in the lip through turns, and navigating with control in the barrel. The outline features a slightly forward widepoint, lots of overall curve, and a slight hip placed around the fins. The bottom shape consists of panel V entry, with inverted V cut into the panel V in order to straighten the center entry rocker curve while still keeping the benefits of the raised rail line entry intact for late takeoffs. It then transitions to a single concave through most of the board of which evens out to flat at the tail tips.

This design is focused on lateral surfing and trim. The wider tail provides stability and creates a more parallel outline for speed generation. It has a convex bottom shape with a thin, low apex rail shape. Not only does this combination of design features easily handle higher speeds, but it also helps the board to roll over and project through turns, as well as provide a unique feeling of heightened sensitivity. The quad fins are placed close to the rail to mimic the feeling of a twin keel fin, while providing more overall control and a slightly shorter turning arc.

This design is focused on flowing through sections and linking carves. The increased outline curve gives it control at high speeds, and allows it to fit in tight pockets of the wave. It is a functional, high performing, and adaptable design that can be pushed hard with the right mindset and approach. The standard bottom shape consists of light V entry, to a double concave, to spiral V in the tail.

This design is focused on smooth rail surfing and connecting clean lines. This shape is conducive to a relaxed, but calculated performance surfing style. The rocker curve is neutral and continuous from nose to tail giving it functionality in multiple wave types. The standard bottom shape consists of light panel V entry, to flat, to light double barrel concave, to spiral V, to flat behind the fins. This design is offered in a rounded pin, or swallow tail option.

This design is focused on smooth shredding and the benefits that pivot, and tight radius turns from a center fin provide. Its neutral rocker curve and balanced outline make for a versatile egg/shortboard combination in multiple wave types and situations. It has well foiled rails with a hard edge in the tail for engagement and sensitivity. It has a bottom shape consisting of light panel V entry, to light double barrel concave, to spiral V, to flat behind the rear fin placement.

7’0’’ x 21 ⅜’’ x 2 ¾’’

This design is focused on blending the positive feelings of a twin fin and a quad fin setup. It is designed to be ridden in the mid 6’ to low 7’ range and cover the bases in many different wave types. With its fairly neutral rocker curve, widepoint placement just ahead of center, and generous volume distribution, It can act as a step up board in open faced waves while also functioning as a more approachable alternative to a performance shortboard in average waves. Its bottom shape consists of light panel V entry, to flat, to panel V through the rest of the board with channels placed inside the panel V in the tail in order to let the board easily roll onto rail, while also projecting in the desired direction of the surfer. The fin setup gives the twin fin feeling a little bit more projection and control, but without being as pivotal as a larger, single trailing fin.
