This a custom USC Alien bound for the USA . Fully customized for Blake. Its dimensions are
6'3 by 20 1/8 by 2 3/4 ( litres 35.20 ).
Artwork is the Fibonacci Coral design on the deck .
Blake mainly rides single fins and twins , so he requested the Alien be set up as a Two plus one ,as he plans to ride it as a twin.
To get the best performance out of this board as a two plus one fin set up , the design had to be tweaked , we changed the rocker , overall a flatter rocker and also the bottom concave we added a pronounced V through the tail to allow the easily transitions from rail to rail .
You can see the tail shape is not your traditional swallow but a moon tail , with a jet black bottom
We would recommend these fins to ride with this set up . They are available at the online store
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 !
USC Alien custom for Japan, The Alien normally comes with the swallow tail but this customer Akane-san requested a rounded pin .
Dimensions are 5'4 by 19 1/4 by 2 3/16 , 24 litres .
Custom USC Hi Performance , customized with a Squash Tail which still allows the high performance aspects of the this plan-shape to work but adds the benefits of quick release and width for flotation. Well suited to a wide range of conditions and fin set ups.
Or order in a swallow tail which blends a square tail with some of the pin tails tube-fitting and turning subtlety, and release which compliments the modern concave bottoms.
This board is : 6'1 by 18 3/4 by 2 3/8 (27.09 litres).
