2017 Spring Board Forum

March 20, 2017 • Geared Up

These days, any surfboard under the sun can be yours — why not work with a local shaper who has years of experience to find the right one that fits you, your abilities, your preferences, your goals, and the waves you like to surf perfectly?

Gorrobo shaped by AJ Finan
5’10” x 18 7/8″ x 2 5/16″
Volume: 27.65L
Email: Info@CoreVacComposites.com
Fast, modern compressed outline with the wide point pulled forward to add a greater A to B speed line from the wide point to moderately fuller tail. Not too wide a tail that the board is relegated to flat turns, this one still crushes off the bottom to put some pressure on the lip.

The Stinger is our newest version of the popular 20-year classic model The RPG. A fatter, wider, and shorter version of the RPG with all the speed and pivot of its predecessor in a more compact frame. With our classic slotted wings, giving it the holding power to take this board from knee-high to well overhead.

Not only do the JOB models offer performance but the signature graphic also reeks of tropical bliss. Fin set included.

5’5″ x 19 1/4″ x 2 5/16″
Email: orders@klsurfboards.com • Phone: 760-453-7325
Instagram: @kailanisurfboards
Inspired by the retro fish, The Secretary gets you excited to get in the water even in the worst of conditions. The board has volume all around with a flat deck and super round rails with a sharp back edge to help hold on larger carves. The bottom has a very light concave with a light double in the back. The tail was designed as a split squash to make the board loose, but it holds a little stronger than a regular swallowtail. We recommend this board as a 5-fin setup so you can ride it as a quad or a thruster. We can build this board in either polyester or epoxy.

Custom rocker cut at the factory with a foam core stringer for fast flex return. The flex can be adjusted with carbon or glassing. I’ve had really good feedback from surfers telling me that the “flex is unreal”.

A more performance take on a classic fish, we have given this guy a new outline, making it sleeker while refining the rails for control and changing the bottom. The bottom now consists of a rolled vee entry to single to deep double concave. The main new feature is the channels running outside the fins using the twinzer concept, which has given this board a whole new gear. It’s fast!

A new small-wave performance board for 2017, The Goose is a great everyday grinder, best suited to waves from knee to head-high. It features a single concave from nose to tail combined with low entry rocker with late flip in the tail. This gets it up and going fast and allows The Goose to turn tight in the pocket and release well off the top.

5’4″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
Phone: 805-658-6855 • Instagram: @Roberts_Surf
All about fun but not a clunky soft top, it’s an epoxy surfboard with a soft grippy deck. The Dream Machine in Epoxy Soft Wrap Technology is made with the same proven rockers, bottom contours, and fin placements found in our other constructions. As one of our popular Groveller models, the Dream Machine’s fuller outline and foil not only makes it great for learning to surf but also a small-wave crusher for higher-level riders. Available in 5’4″, 5’10” and 6’4″.

Metamorph shaped by Robert Weiner
5’8″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 9/16″
Volume: 33.31L
Phone: 805-658-6855 • Instagram: @Roberts_Surf
Metamorph takes the small-wave groveller to another form. We wanted a board that could generate speed in small waves and control speed in waves where other grovellers might lose their hold. The Metamorph has low rocker forward of the tail area for speed with flip in the nose that doesn’t hang up coming out of turns. In the rear, we opted for a thinned and tapered roundtail with a hint of rocker to control speed going into tight turns or on better waves. If you want a board that thrives on speed and lives to destroy, discover the Metamorph.

The Vindicator shaped by Robert Weiner
5’10” x 19 3/8″ x 2 3/8″
Volume: 30.26L
Phone: 805-658-6855 • Instagram: @Roberts_Surf
The Vindicator is a versatile as well as responsive high-performance board. It works great in small surf by having a good amount of foam under your chest and low entry rocker for easy paddling and catching waves. We gave it a moderate tail rocker that works terrific in small surf and shines when you need to control speed on those bigger days a storm or hurricane might bring. Its rounded tail lengthens rail line and reduces tail area for doing arcing turns on bigger faces while still having release off the top for vertical maneuvers in small to bigger surf.

The Fun 1 shaped by Robert Weiner
6’2″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 1/2″
Volume: 36.69L
Phone: 805-658-6855 • Instagram: @Roberts_Surf
First board, fun board, or one board, The Fun 1 is a blend of easy surfing and performance. The Fun 1’s rockers start with a slight flip in the nose to a moderate rocker in the middle and end with a very light flip in the tail. This is one thing that makes it so versatile for the beginner to the advanced. As your surfing improves, you’ll be able to take advantage of the rocker instead of a flat board holding you back. Medium foiled rails aid in its stability and turning. Depending on how you size it, The Fun 1 can be great for a beginner, as a longboard alternative, or even for the advanced surfer wanting to catch more waves while still having performance in mind.
