This board has come from blending the best bits of the Missing Link and the Saving Grace, hence the name “The Blender”.
I designed it primarily for flatter slower waves, with faster hollow sections, just like the wave in Riyue Bay in Hainan Island Off southern China. This is where they have held the WSL World Longboard Tour for the past 4 years, and is likely for the tour to finish there in the future. After going for these years, I feel like I have finally cracked what I need to be riding there whilst surfing to there more traditional judging criteria.
This board still has high performance features, but it is wider all over, with a more relaxed rocker. The bottom starts with a single concave in the nose, flowing straight into a subtle double concave through the centre rolling out into big rolled V inside the slight double, making this board a dream to surf on the nose and tail, it really feels like easy surfing. It turns with flow and speed and will glide through any fat section with ease, and on the nose it just locks in.
An easy board to surf suiting all abilities and all conditions upto 4-5ft.
I first rode this board in the 2015 WLT in China, and finished 3rd in the world. So I can assure you this board works!
