One of the most user-friendly boards you could own, the Virus is as infectious as its name. With low entry rocker, low tail rocker, wide outline, but tight hip to swallowtail, this board paddles like a dream, is extremely fast, but highly maneuverable.
Best for those mushy beach breaks in the 1-4 foot range, the Virus is a great all round board that will plane well, is easy to paddle, yet still provides the performance characteristics to feel like you are ripping on the smaller days.
The Speed R3 is a board built to have lots of speed, drive and be highly responsive. The double concave running all the way from nose to fins and Vee out the tail keeps this board in 5th gear and easy to transfer from rail to rail.
The Speed R3 is best in waves ranging from 2 to 6 foot and wants to be surfed at a high level of performance. Driving through bottom turns, laying it on rail, and surfing tight in the pocket is what this board is all about.
The Speed 2 is designed to be fast and loose while surfing in the pocket. Similar to the Speed 1, the Speed 2 has lowered the overall rocker and changed the bottom contours slightly to suit a back footed surfer.
A variety of waves from 2 - 6 foot, the Speed 2 thrives in punchy, hollow beach breaks and loves to be surfed in the pocket. Order this board 2 - 3 inches shorter than your traditional shortboard.
The Speed 1 is a board designed to be fast and surf loose in the pocket. The single concave and higher tail rocker keeps this board fast, but highly maneuverable in the pocket.
Best for waves ranging from 2 to 6 foot, the Speed 1 loves the fast punchy beach breaks and point breaks. For intermediate to advanced surfers, you can order this board 2-3 inches shorter than your standard shortboard.
A great all round board built for a variety of surfers, the Slice and Dice wants to do just that...slice up the wave in rail to rail surfing as well as blasting airs and hitting lips.
The Slice and Dice is best in waves from 2 to 4, maybe 6 foot performance waves. When the waves aren't quiet barreling but offer a lot of room to lay into turns. The flatter rocker and wider outline keeps paddling easy while the slight concaves make this board fast and loose.
The appropriately named Single Fin is designed to add a little style and fun to your sessions. With tonnes of volume, boxy rail and the option of a 6 channel bottom, you will be flying down high lines, soul arching off bottom turns and sitting pretty in the tube.
The Single Fin is best in lined up, clean conditions like points or lined up beach breaks. Although with the option of a rounder tail, it can be a blast in punchy beach break with a bit of barrel too...You can surf this board in anything from 2 to 8 foot depending on its size and tail configuration.
