“One of the biggest challenges in the design world of surfboards believe it or not is to create a grommet board that works. Fifteen years ago these challenges began with a very young and small Julian Wilson, more recently with my own three kids. We found success back then hand shaping these mini crafts, it was bloody hard work.
But having these as a solid reference we’ve been able to move forward with cad cutting design software and develop the user friendly all round board for groms to have fun and shred on.
The grom board has to have enough volume so the little guy/girl can catch waves while at the same time maintaining flow and sensitivity, enabling the grom to easily turn the board.
The Phoenix is an all round board for accomplished little shredders and can be ordered a size up for the novice.”
“The apocalypse is coming, be prepared. You need a weapon that’s easy to handle and delivers a crushing blow.”
OULTINE – Contemporary Modern. Easy to Surf.
ENTRY ROCKER – Mid. Instant speed and carry over flatter sections.

TAIL – Rounded Pin.
FIN SET-UP – 5 Fin. Thruster or Quad Option.
“Coming up to its fifth birthday The Chubby Chedda is proving to be a way more versatile short board than ever anticipated and the favourite of many re-ordering their LSD. The design stemmed from a widened outline of a contemporary shortboard, hence the ‘Chubby’ providing desirable fast planing speed. The nose rocker is low for acceleration and ease of paddling while the performance-style tail rocker allows the board to get vertical and whippy when needed. Single concave throughout with a decent double under the back foot makes it easy to roll over from rail to rail.
Round tail Chubby Chedda
The CC has until now been designed with a round square tail but research has found that a round tail on the CC gives it a whole new dimension; slightly less pod area gives the rider more hold and control,especially in bigger powerful waves and makes it easier to fit into the more critical suckier sections.”
Just like your trusty 5150, The Machine Head will get the job done. Even after all those shows in tiny rooms & sweaty underground clubs. It’s going to constantly do what you need it to, even when under pressure. Trusted to handle whatever you throw at it. Shred on…
“High performance small wave quad option all rounder for waves 1 to 5 feet.
Medium nose and tail rocker with deep single concave to a slight vee right on the tail to assist quad rail to rail control. Low soft Simon rail to help hold and facilitate deeper carves through turns on the wave face.
“Increased width and nose area enables you to surf FD a little shorter as per World Tour trends. Works best all round as a thruster but has the ability to be looser and faster as a quad in weaker waves.”
“Your normal favorite thruster set will be good.
For clean point or reef waves – flat inside foil side thruster fin set and double sided foil back quad fins. For general beach breaks conditions – concave inside foil side thruster fin set with 70 30 foil back quad fins.”
The Grizzly is a powerful, top-of-the-food-chain predator. Much of their diet consists of pocket surfing, tight arcs and down the line speed. Grizzly’s have a pulled in nose outline compared to other shortboards over the last 5 years. It’s deep single to double concave allows it to hunt prey fast. The extra layer of foam under the chest helps with paddling. We really haven’t changed this this too much. It’s very closely related to it’s big brother. Extensive testing with Dakoda Walters to ensure that it performs in all the right places for a younger surfer.
