From the master shaping hands of Scott Anderson comes the infamous Marshall Brothers model. Like the earlier Farberow models of the last decade, this board works in everything—from bigger bombs at the top of the point to ankle slappers on the inside. The board features a large 19" nose platform with a blended concave on the underside. The rails down the middle are fairly parallel and foiled for water sensitivity with a kick out the tail for those ultra long tip rides. If you only needed one log... but who only wants one!
Josh Farberow and Scott Anderson designed this new concept together and it has proven to be an unparalleled blend of existing new and old designs. Based on the ancient Hawaiian alaia board, the Slide and Glide is also almost finless. But three elements give it directional maneuverability (which the alaia lacks): deep dual concaves, adjacent longitudinal ribs, and two very small keel fins (1 1/4" deep by 5 1/2" long). The surfboard is made from modern polyurethane foam and 4 ounce fiberglass. Ridden by an advanced to expert surfer, it will perform controlled slides, 360's, bottom turns, and speed runs high in the face of a wave.
Formerly called the "DP", this gem rides like a winner. Cutbacks are smooth and quick, noserides are stable and steerable. A stylish alternative.
The "Fader" is a unique blend of displacement hull hydrodynamics (front half) and current shortboard down-rail theory (back half). The tri-fin roundtail and flattened rocker combined with aforementioned elements to yield a fast yet tight maneuverability. Similar template to a mid to late 80s Skip Frye mid-length.
An expanded version of the mid-length Bojorquez, this longboard utilizes the same principles of displacement hull hydrodynamics. Fast and maneuverable, it's simply unique.
Sonar, a.k.a. Hullaballoo, a.k.a. Mini-Simmons: As might be inferred from the chip shape and the half-moon wood twin-fins, this fish was inspired by the legend himself, Bob Simmons. Upon first glance, it appears to be a single displacement hull. But a closer inspection will reveal the subtle single concave that starts at the 1/3 mark and continues off the tail but stays confined between the fins. The rail has a mellow integrated chine, which acts as a turning rail. These elements play together to create a fast and loose twinnie like no other. Bob would agree.
This board works in everything—from bigger bombs at the top of the point to ankle slappers on the inside. Crank a smooth cutty on this pintail noserider. Deep nose concave for the tip time, pinched rails for the mid-board carves.
