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.”
“Taking inspiration from the 80’s but keeping with our design theories of performance, the Wedge Tail will have you flying down the line.
Flat rocker and the wide point two thirds of the way up the board will make you generate speed out of your front foot. Flyers sit on the rail, right about the same positioning of your back foot, giving you responsive rail to rail surfing. Take these features and combine them with single to quad concave for that extra spurt of speed, along with the loose swallow tail and your in for one hell of a surf.
We recommend riding with Twin Fin and stabilizer setup.
“The double diamond is a small wave board with range that paddles well, drives over the dead sections, and can also fit into the pocket.
It’s slightly curved planshape and diamond tail negates that overly stiff feel that wide straight swallow tails can get. These lines allow the board to be pumped for speed and snapped hard in the pocket. The 5 fin configuration extends on it’s versatility.
The double concave in the tail adds the bite that is needed to give grip when the waves get a little bigger.”
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.
“This design is the first Nugget I shaped in 1994. Proven to be a very versatile performer in a wide range of wave conditions from 1′ ~ 8′ all around the surfing world; thicker wider and shorter with more volume and buoyancy than you have had before, easy to paddle and catch waves, easy to control, with more speed than you have had in years! When it starts to barrel, you will be laughing.”
