The Roach is hard to kill. Add this to your quiver for some serious thrills.
The Roach comes from a collaboration I did a few years ago with Bob Hurley based on a board he made for Rabbit Bartholemew back in the 80′s. The Rab3 is a really popular board that is made for the Hurley staff and team and I wanted to make a modern version of this for the Stacey brand. I’ve used the Rab3 as the base, but have tweaked every aspect of it it to give a really nice, settled feel when on the wave. It’s still got the Hip Swallow Tail and intricate bottom contours to give it drive and a tight turning arc. It is available in either thruster or a five fin set-up to give you more options when you’re at the beach. The Roach in 2017 is also available with Square Tail for a fun, 1980’s feel, but with modern capabilities.
“Quad-option roundtail Thruster, short fat summer board with a blend of performance for 1 to 3 feet surf. Wider and fuller nose, low rocker, medium volume rails on a thicker board with deep single to double concave and vee at the tail.
Designed for fatter slow waves, Spudster has good paddle power to get you up and going when there’s not much there. Surf as a quad to cut shorter, sharper arcs on the wave face, or as a Thruster for more of a carve feel.”
“Small – three sizes from 5’8 to 6’4 built to cover the more advanced elements of surfing whilst still focusing on fun. The Fun Division small offers the most diversity through its multiple fin configuration, ride as a single fin for that flowing feeling that only a single fin can deliver.
Need more control? Why not add side bights to the single fin for increased performance or remove the single fin and ride as a quad when the waves are fast and hollow.”
