Our main man Eden , who heads up all the logistics and customer queries, will be out of town from 23rd June till End of July. He is bound for the Banyaks and Mentawais to some dream waves in the northern part of the Indonesian archipelago ... (lucky for some).
Time to get some tubes and test some new shooters for this guy !
The factory will still be open making boards, but all orders after 20th June you will be expecting delivery late July / Early August .
Eden's phone / email will still be working and he will do his best to answer all your queries and get back to you with updates from the factory about any boards in progress .
Sorry for the production times but quality sometimes takes a little time ... And Indonesia has been pumping and most of the workers are heading to Indo over the July period , so time to down tools and get shacked for the Formula Energy Crew !
Thinking about a new custom shooter in the near future, give us a call or email . Currently some of the performance models have been coming out 'The best ever" in performance and quality ...
Here is few little waves of Eden on last trip in the Telos Islands..
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" !
This new Light Blue hemp is the lightest material in the hemp range , adding it to the deck of your board in the USC range ,with the parabolic carbon rail compliments the "flex" and spring enhancing the drive and speed of the board, keeping it looking good for longer and that all important new board feeling .
The "look" of the material is almost a subtle light blue denim once it is glassed .
The Hemp / Tencel combination is a winner for heavy footed surfers or people who tend to hammer their decks with massive footwells and depressions .
Check out more about the hemp and all the other colours available here.
