Quick Overview: “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 Grizzly is a powerful, top-of-the-food-chain predator. Built with input from Dakoda Walters, this is your modern high performance shortboard for the younger surfer.
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.
Designed to be ridden 3 inches shorter than your height.
This is a performance board for tiny waves. A flat rocker with a raised rail curve to give vee out the back of the board for speed and release. A stubby outline combined with a wide round square tail allows for rail to rail surfing. This winning combo saw Matt Wilkinson ride it to the WCT Final in Santa Cruz. Seeing that this board could be ridden in competition waves so well, saw it placed in the new Emery Anarchy series.
Noa Deane is the latest exciting addition to the LSD team. With his recent change of major sponsor he is now back and riding for LSD.
“Noa is a good person. A person who can change people’s perceptions about surfing for the better just by being himself, saying what he thinks, surfing how he feels. He’s the antidote to surfing with a plan, a torch to the spreadsheets that turn riding oceans into a pile of stinking numbers. He’s got the DNA of every surfing miscreant and rabble-rouser and hot-blooded purist in his veins, and the delightful ignorance of youth on his side.” from volcom.com.au
