Good riders can make any shape work in the surf and flatwater allows for a lot of board shape floors to go undiscovered. It's not until you get out in the surf that the design and construction elements of a professional shaped board become apparent.
At Greenroom Boards Australia we use over 10+ Years of riding and Industry experience to create boards that excel in both calm protected flatwater bays and also are well at home in the Surf. Below we discuss the Key design features of our boards that make this possible
The botttom is the key area of the board that many people fail to recognise or consider. A good shaper will create a bottom waterflow line that provides, lift and therefore planing speed, while maintaining stability and mobility through the tail when the board has gained speed and the stability factor becomes less important.
Concave to double concave through the centre stance area - provides sped, lift and stability.
Convex through the tail area to compliment the surf rail for aided turning and manoeuvrability while on the waves.
Thinned out through top and bottom areas to allow for ease of movement both cruising out through the waves and surfing them.
Volume distribution through the centre area is by way of a boxy rail line allowing more weight to supported while standing and less weight to be in the key surfing areas of the tail
25mm diamond deck pad with surf kick in tail allows for extra comfort and grip
The top deck area is shaped to allow a flat standing area through the centre deck area of the board which provides two key benefits
2. Increased volume to manoeuvrability ratio - so you can go smaller and rip harder while not losing your balance.
The outline of our models allows them to be used in both calm, flatwater and in the surf. They create and generate speed through lift and plane. We focus the volume through the stance area and out to the full rail while bringing that in and refining it at the nose and tail of the boards.
Bothe Surf Cruiser and the Lifestyle Surfer are made for the Ocean but given this they will also be just at home on the flat calm waterways.
Most boards will work in the calm water but only some boards will work in both and it takes a professional shaper with years of experience to get that right.
