The foundation of surfing, catching waves is a must, which can be a struggle when riding something smaller. This board has the feeling of riding a smaller board whilst holding the ability to catch waves, flow and turn with stability. A very fun board for all conditions and abilities.

THE QUILL “For drawing traditional lines”

Specifications: 9’4″ X 23″ X 3″ Volume = 73L • Fins: Single Fin • Shaper: Ben Skinner

We came up with the name of this board after riding it for the first time. Although it is a heavier traditional design, with its 50-50 rails, subtle concave through the nose, running with vee through the belly, a unique rolled out tail, with the wide point behind the centre, it had this feeling that we can only describe as a feather falling from the sky. It is stable on the nose and tail, with the ability to draw traditional lines.


Specifications: 9’6″ X 23 1/4″ X 3″ Volume = 74.5L • Fins: Single Fin • Shaper: Ben Skinner

This is the perfect traditional noserider, with straighter lines, a flipped foil through the tail and a vee running through the belly blending into a concave in the nose. Again with 50-50 rails and rolled features, it is extremely stable on the nose with great flow through the tail.
