The Wizzards Wand

This is a new model that i have been working on and just like the "The Wizzard Slipper" which has turned into another Gem of a board..so too has the need to further develop it's characteristics into a more performance based crossover shortboard groveller.By narrowing up the existing dimensions off the Wizzard Slipper....essentially stretching it out, lowering the rail volume to a medium/full rail along with a touch more nose rocker and tail rocker,deeper single to double concave for added lift and speed into a vee'd tail..creates an exceptional lively feel that gets up and goes.A must have board in your quiver that will put a smile on your face.The added nose area and volume makes for one easy paddler,but still offers up directional performance in turns as well as stability for launching and landing airs.Best ridden 2-4 inches shorter than regular shorty,3/8" -3/4" wider and the same thickness.Recommended as the standard Hip Squash as a thruster set up,but available as a Quad or 5-4-3 set up.

New models

The all new "Wizzard Slipper" is a continuation of the "Sorcerers Apprentice",which really turned out a great seller this past summer.By the rider feedback and personal testing this board has definately proven fun.Keeping similar characteristics of the Sorcerers Apprentice,but narrowing up the nose for more directional performance and adding a touch more forward rocker with a slightly narrower hipped rounded Squash tail outline and by flattening out the deck with a fuller rail volume allows for this board to be ridden a bit thinner than your standard high performance shorty.A forward concave running into a deep double spiral concave gives this little Gem some major speed and drive.

Raptor Pin

After a recent trip down to Bali..i had decided to make a few new boards to test out.Fortunately i had stumbled upon the chance to to go..unlike past occasions where i'm always stuck in the shaping bay and making boards for everyone going on some exotic surf trip.

Well seeing as you can only travel with a limited number of boards now..i had made the "Raptor" a few days prior to leaving..along with a few other new test models.Paddling out on this board..well let's just say..you know when a board just feels right.Needless to say..2 weeks in Bali was just perfect.I surfed my brains out and definately learned a few traits from each new model.The Raptor surpassed every expectation i had,especially after upgrading to a slightly larger fin combo to accomodate the extra width across the tail area.Definately a good all round travel board as it was intended to be.It handled the small days to a couple of feet overhead..no problem.

This is one board that will always be in my travel quiver from now on...speaking of travel..Sumatra is sounding mighty fine ..and i can definately see that in the not too distant months from now.

Live to surf..and surf to live..but most of all..be respectful..and "Ride it like you just stole your last wave"!!!
