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.

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.
“The Flat Head by Stacey Surfboards has a fun stubby shortboard outline that loves getting amongst the smaller waves. With a nice flat deck and full rolled rail, combined with a single to double concave and a flatter entry rocker, you are going to have plenty of fun on this beast.
The Flat Head is perfect for those smaller days. Surfed in a thruster setup, this board is a simple, uncomplicated template that will do everything you need.”
“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.”
