so naturally came the new boards.....

two nice fresh new pro models......

ben decided he wanted two boards that would cover a wide spectrum of waves.... ^above it what we came up with.... a 5'10 goat nuts!!....designed to go in the smaller summer waves that england has to offer, i touch more volume than normal along with a bit of width and lower rocker curve for better paddling and planing speed in smaller slacker waves.

the second board is a 6'0 performer, designed for the more hollow larger waves that may be encountered....  this board is very similar to the 5'10 however the double concave runs slightly further that the 5'10, also the board has slightly increased rocker for surfing in larger steeper waves and slightly less hip than the 5'10.

squiddly diddly finished and surf checked!

So the New Squiddly Diddly has been completed and tested today at boobys...some nice head high waves, even though the waves weren't great with a little bit of an onshore breeze.

the board was great, it was like surfing two boards at once, it almost felt like a single fin off the front foot, then a high performance fish off the back foot. it was great through turn and projected out of turn like a dream and generated more and more speed throughout the top it off i wold say the board is amazing if your into something away from the conventional thruster, shorter, wider, and fatter than the normal shortboard and goes great
