ACSOD Surfboards or Alex Crews Shapes is one of the younger surfboard brands making their mark in the industry. From day dot ACSOD has strived to achieve performance, quality and of course, style.
As a relatively new shaper on the scene Alex Crews brings a fresh approach to shaping everything from high performance boards to fun retro shapes like the popular Two Fangs
The ACSOD Ghost gives you a little spice in your daily all-rounder. With nice forward width and added volume, this board is very forgiving through turns. This combined with a medium entry rocker and a flattened tail rocker means you keep your speed up through flatter sections.
The Ghost is a great all-round shortboard ready to take on everyday conditions especially on a beach break near you. Great in solid 4-6ft swell and should be ridden an inch shorter and 1/4 wider and 1/8 thicker.
Flat rocker for instant speed and easy planing. High volume for extra paddle power & lift in small waves. Single, double, vee concave setup adds speed and manoeuvrability. A very versatile step down for all surfers and surf conditions.
A balanced rocker. Single, double, vee concave setup with a single channel shaped in, This adds a tone of speed whilst the channel maintains grip and hold. Medium rails for sensitivity. The perfect alternate to you performance board when the waves arena.
The Meat Lovers is exactly as it sounds...full of meat. Foam is your friend and this board packs a lot into a little package. Designed to be the performance go to for the surfer that needs a little more foam that they used to. Wide point pushed forward 1 inch to help with paddle power, and the ever-reliable single to double concave, combined with a smooth rocker from nose to tail allows this board to feel great under your feet from day one.
Best in your local beach break and any condition from 2 to 6 foot, the Meat Lovers is a must have in your quiver if you are packing a little more meat yourself. High performance with a little extra foam and a reliable design makes this almost a one board quiver for the surfer who needs some extra push.
The Splinta is a high performance machine, built for good days. A touch more rocker in both the nose and the tail, combined with a reliable single to double concave and a slightly lower rail, this board loves to be surfed hard in hollow waves. Wide point a touch forward of center helps get you into waves early and the refined outline keeps you surfing from rail to rail with ease.
The Splinta is best in good conditions ranging from 3 to 7 foot. Beach breaks, reef breaks, slabs or points, this is a reliable board that can be surfed anywhere.
The Axe by ACSOD is your go-to step up board. Designed for when the surf starts pumping overhead to around 10 foot or so. The full rocker throughout combined with the bottom contours keeps this board tight in the face of a big hollow wave and allows you to arc hard turns in big pockets. Experienced surfers only.
The Axe is best when the waves hit a few feet overhead and will hold in upwards of 10 foot plus. The extended rail line will help you negotiate bigger conditions and help get you into waves. This board loves big, hollow days!
A board designed to keep surfing fun when conditions are marginal, the Coffee Stain will perform in most conditions. A wider outline and flatter rocker, combined with the flyer wings to bring the tail in, makes this board easy to paddle fast through the flats when on your front foot, but highly responsive off the tail when your back foot engages the fins. Slight Vee in the nose helps get you through late drops when you have lower rocker. The single to double with Vee out the tail keeps the board responsive and quick from rail to rail.
Surf this board in anything from 1 to 5 foot and a variety of conditions. The Coffee Stain should be a staple in your quiver as it will open up options for surf when you other equipment just isn't doing it.
The Sex Drive is a must have for everyone's quiver! With the wide nose, straight rail line down to the round tail, combined with concave's featuring Vee to single - double - Vee out the tail, this board paddles extremely well, is fast and with the Vee out the tail producing higher rocker along the rail at the tail, you can whip tight turns in the pocket when put on rail.
The Sex Drive can literally be surfed in most conditions you face day to day. Take it out in anything from 1 to 5 foot, sloppy, clean, point breaks, beach breaks, you name it. You will fall in love with surfing again when you have some Sex Drive
The Killer Python is a 2016 Summer Longboard option that made for beginners right through to expert log-riders. Influenced by nose-rider logs this board has a smooth entry rocker that runs into a flipped exit out the tail to help with turning. A rolled vee runs from the tail transitioning into a single concave through the nose. The rolled vee helps with turning rail to rail where the single concave creates lift when riding the nose.
The ACSOD Killer Python is a very classic take on a modern longboard suited to log riders of all levels. The 50/50 rails also help the boards rail to sit in the water helping the board to bite and turn easier.
