Quick Overview: “Stretched-out Mollusc, area nose, roundtail, slight single concave to vee through the back half with double concave cutting through the vee panel and fading out 9” before the end of the board, flatter deck to low soft rail, beak nose, slightly thicker tail. Ultimate wave catching assistance without sacrificing too much performance. Good stand there speed and glide across the wave. Round tail and vee combined with the tail rocker help the big board turn in a short arc off the back foot in cutbacks and rebound well off the top in smaller waves.
The Robo has reasonable hold and good drive in bigger surf and is a fun transition board to get back into shape when returning from injury or if your fitness is down or you are getting on a bit and no longer have the time or circumstance to surf regularly. Surf 4 to 6″ longer, 1/2 to 3/4″ wider and the same to 1/8 or 1/4” thicker than your old smaller all-rounder. Dimensions will depend on the level of help you need to catch waves. Keep in mind the bigger you go the less performance you can expect.”

This model is the shortest and fullest of the four small wave boards that have been based on the high performance shortboard. It’s stumpy planshape is combined with rails, deck shape and concave as you’d find on any current shortboard, so that it still feels alive and responsive. The tail area is wide enough to not only give great small wave planing ability, but also to give the freedom to break the fins out in top turns.
“The Magic Mushroom is a shorter, wider version of a standard shortboard that allows you shorten the arc of your turn, surf tight in the pocket, and generate exceptional speed.
Extra width positioned through the center of the board compensates for the reduction in length, while the rocker profile and bottom contours mimic that of a high performance shortboard. The hip positioned just forward of the fins reduces the tail width to maintain the rail-to-rail sensitivity and response of a much narrower board.
Available in XF Technology and PU, the Mushy is ideal for anyone looking to maximize their performance and enjoyment in day-to-day conditions. The smaller sizes will have advanced riders exploring above the lip, the bigger sizes will suit heavier riders who want to surf to their full potential. Surf the Mushy approximately 4 inches shorter than your standard shortboard.”
This small wave pocket rocket is a total rip off of Matt Bilos’s Rocket fish thing, which I really like. No actually I designed it well before I even saw that model of his, but no wonder I like his design because it has a deckline like the sonic. This board has a bit more concave than usual at 3/8″ of depth and has a slightly flatter deck. As a result you get chunks of lift and speed from the deep concave but forgiveness from the stability that comes from the flatter deck. This model sits in between the CD and the Mini CD in terms of function. ie looser than the CD but more controllable and all-rounder-ish than the Mini CD.
