After years devoted to fringe experiments, I suddenly had the urge to smack the lip again. I started borrowing friends' boards and seeing what I liked. Inspired primarily by the Channel Islands Biscuit and Gary Hanel's Diet Pill, I came up with my own spin on the short, wide, performance-oriented shortboard that's become so popular in the last ten years.
Plenty of foam nose to tail keep it paddling like a champ, but shortboard style rails, low rocker and a round tail keeps it fast, loose and carveable up to shockingly large surf for such a small board. These come standard with a 5 box fin setup, so thruster advocates and quad aficionados will be equally at home on this design.
