Simple Nemo

Custom USC Nemo made for Hayashi-San, dimensions are , 5'10 by 19 7/8 by 2 3/8 . 28.82 litres , on the way to Japan.Formula Energy USC Nemo custom surfboard

The simple  Nemo has just got better. Some major design changes, call it a version 2 model , but we just called it evolution , its just how surfboard design progresses. 

The bottom shape or "concaves" are now single into double .

The original Nemo was designed with a single concave ,good for generating speed but the downside it lacks versatility and doesn't like marginal /choppy conditions. And when you think about a high performance fish you are often surfing it in average waves.

The single concave upfront provides a good planing surface for drive and the double concave in the rear loosens up the board. The double concave will actually channel the water into two streams through the fins and out the tail.

The single to double concave is the bottom contour of choice for most modern shortboards. It utilizes the strengths of each design while muting their disadvantages. It reduces the tracking of a single concave while still allowing for a fast ride and a loose feel to the surfboard.

Also giving the advantage of altering between a thruster or quad and seeing what set up works best for you .

And of course its got the unique Bat Tail set up ! Similar performance aspects to the swallow tail design , some surfers remark, it adds a little more stability with the extra centre point , but essentially it's a cosmetic point of difference. Really hard to make , but it does look super "cool" !

Full Customised Creation

At Formula Energy we have the luxury of having everything ''in-house" . Which enables us to create full custom designs and liaising with the surfer throughout the whole process .

From the initial 3 d cad design of the pre-shape we can customize existing plan-shapes and tweak them to suit , then hand shape to make a board that is technically  accurate but with the ultimate goal of a surfboard that performs above and beyond your expectations. 

And then to the final art work ,whether it is a foam spray , resin tint, or full deck print . Artwork is a major part of your surfboard and nothing is off limits, the only thing holding you back is your imagination. 

This particular surfboard was from the imagination of Michael who surfs mainly in marginal conditions. He wanted the ultimate grovel board but was very specific about bottom curves and outlines to make it work in his part of the world .

Essentially its based of a Nemo outline with a single flyer round tail . With single into double concaves with V off the tail . 

Michael never visited the factory and all correspondence were done by email ! 

The Board is all black with Carbon / Kevlar parabolic rails (USC).

 Essentially the ULTIMATE CUSTOM !
