Every surfer is different and customizing the artwork is an important part of ordering a custom surfboard. At Formula Energy one of our favourite parts of the day is doing Resin Tints. Adding the colour to the resin is not done on a whim , its like being a mad professor , measuring and mixing different colours , pigments and tints into the resin .
Blue Swish Resin Tint
Sometimes you nail the application and colour scheme and sometimes you don't but its always done in good spirit and with a bit of creative flair . Every time you do a resin tint you are creating a functional piece of artwork that is as individual as you are !
The above "Blue Swish" we love it ...
Here is USC Savage model, which normally comes with a squash tail as ridden by Team rider Brent Savage. This particular custom we altered the tail shape from a squash tail to a rounded squash or a "thumb tail" . The request was because the surfer is going to Indonesia and wanted more hold and smoother type of release through his turns . The board also has slighter more tail rocker.
The Savage by in large has plenty of tail rocker and deep concaves , this tail will enhance and make the board surf smoother in the pocket and hold in more powerful surf and really allow you to push the board in good waves .
So far thumbs up on the shooter, feedback is "best one ever" !
The Savage model comes recommended with a squash tail shape. If you looking for a little more hold then we can customise to a round tail or step it up to a rounded pin tail ..
The Rounded Pin Tail , will offer more "hold" in overhead surf ,especially good if you like drawing longer lines thru your turns or driving down the line in point break type barrels. As opposed to your squash tail , which is designed to give more release and pivot for shorter punchy type beach break conditions.
If you are expecting good waves or perhaps hitting the Indonesian archipelago and like barrels and down the line the waves you can't go wrong with the this model !
Alessandro our Italian friend ,sent through a few photos taken by Richard Kotch surfing in the tropical wonderland called the Maldives.
Board : USC Savage , location Hudhuranfushi Maldives.
If you chasing perfect waves then you still can't go past a modern day performance short board . The USC Savage is designed for those days that you dream about. Heading to the tropics , don't forget to pack a performance shooter !
I always follow you on Instagram your boards are simply amazing, my best compliments to you all at formula energy!!
Need to wait a little longer, but very soon I will place the order we have discussed on our last emails....meanwhile please find attached some pics of my beautiful Savage, I really love this magic board!! hope you like it!
Sounds like Alessandro is digging his USC Savage model !
Short low res surf edit with an interesting story behind it !
Story Goes , a little like this ,"Fastest strike mission of my life .Surfed nearly 8 hours on the first day and on one of my last waves fell and slapped the water pretty hard. When you come up for air and the whole ocean is spinning upside down you know somethin ain't right haha ".
Hi Res full version coming soon !
Indonesia's swell season, has started with a bang in 2016 and its been been pumping of late and every surfer wants a quality step up for Indo sojourn this year .
Bit more length and tad more foam , touch more rocker , lower rails are all the characteristics that went into these two surfboards made for our team rider Brent Savage .
On the right in the Premium construction ,standard central wooden stringer , again its made for really good waves , 5'11 based on the evergreen Savage model but tad more entry rocker , low rails and an altered bottom curve .
Again its still in R & D phase , and once Savy and the crew give them a good test run over in Indonesia and other locations. We will for sure tweak them based on feedback and once happy with the way they go add them to range .
Another custom Premium Savage , for good , good really good waves . Will work in below average surf but designed to come alive when its pumping .
Dimensions are 5'10 by 20 by 2 9/16 , 29 litres. The surfer was riding a 6'0 by 19 3/4 by 2 1/2 , 30 litres Savage and wanted to drop two inches but without losing to much volume.
We went out to 20 inches wide , thickness 2 9/16 , and he only dropped 1 litre but obviously benefits from a surfboard being more controllable and responsive with the shorter plan-shape.
Warning this artwork is R Rated ! Lucky at first glance it looks like lovely little bubbles on the deck of your surfboard but take a closer look if you are over 18 years old !
Its called Naughty Porn and its available as a full surfboard print under the RANDOM COOL ART dropdown menu .
This one is in grey we also do it with a white background, and the lovely little bubbles on closer inspection reveal some X rated images not for the little ones , or the church goers !
Surfboard model is the Premium Savage , dimensions 6'0 by 19 3/4 by 2 1/2 , 30 litres.
A custom Premium Savage
6'2 by 19 by 2 3/8 custom for Jacob. 28 litres
The Savage model is the go to surfboard for good to excellent waves ! Great addition to the quiver ...
Designed, refined and tested by PRO–SURFER BRENT SAVAGE. This model is Brent’s signature all round performance board.
