Das Spaceshuttleprojektil | El Tomo Fish von Tomo Surfboards
The El Tomo fish is a redux of the classic Tomo Fighter Jet Fish. This time with a dedicated quad-fin set up, for maximum versatility.
It is designed to excel in the smaller end of the wave range, when conditions lack power and require some extra inspiration.
It features a classic, performance fish outline spliced with the trademark Tomo multi-concave hull design which results in smooth, speedy transitions. High-performance moments are on tap due to the freely releasing, bump wing to double-diamond tail profile. With a generous volume range and low rocker similar to the Evo, the El Tomo is fast and stable, suitable to most ability levels without comprising the performance characteristics that we expect from a Tomo design.
Der Future-Classic | Rocket Redux von Lost Surfboards
«Before mass media marketeers played Hypto-Crypto with your mind, making you believe in the Sci-Fi that Ghosts and Monstas were more than just Average Joes, Diving through Dumpsters along the Seaside… there was The ROCKET!… and we ain’t talking 9 or Wide. Before Instagram and the endless charade of social media surfboard model marketing melted our minds, real word of mouth made one little board iconic throughout the surfing world…. The ROCKET.»
Birthed from a broken blank and the brains of Beschen (Shane) and Budroe, the original Rocket was to simply be a board for baby Beschen (Noah) to learn on. Once ridden by Shane, everything changed, and he felt compelled to bring us his fabulous find to be refined. Happy accidents have been a staple of surfboard progression, since the beginning. As we started fine tuning and building them for the boys, we knew were had something special. Fast forward a year, and the 2009 video release of “5’5 Redux”. The ROCKET was a star of the show, ridden by a parade of guest rippers cutting loose on the little weapon. From Bros to Pros, The ROCKET was soon a global hit, being enjoyed by surfers of all shapes, sizes and skill sets. Now, more than a decade after its initial release, the ROCKET returns. A re-incarnated Redux for the new generation to enjoy another run of fun… The ROCKET REDUX
We’ve strived to retain all the original ROCKET design details and magic: The extremely low and fast entry rocker, counterbalanced by a hyper-extended tail curve, for instantaneous down the line drive and playfully precise turning. The deepest of concaves, created by a straight centerline stringer and a curvaceous rail rocker lends lift and liveliness. The wide tail and parallel, bullet like, outline provides plenty of speed and hold. The hooked diamond “Rocket” tail adds bite and hold in firm, rear footed carves.
While the ROCKET REDUX stays true to the original ROCKET, to bring a serious performance boost we’ve: Refined and cleaned curves, made the rails a bit more refined, and updated some details just enough to keep up with the things we’ve learned since.
Barbier, Bartwuchs oder | The Fishbeard von Channel Islands
Parker Coffin said it first: «A NeckBeard 2 would work sick as a keel-fin fish!» So we go to work redesigning the back half of the NB2 template and rocker, paired the board with our CI Keel Fins, and the FishBeard was born.
The FishBeard is pure business in the front and all party in the back. Get forward on this user-friendly board and drive from the center and you’ll have all the speed and flow you always desired. Step back on the tail to engage the fins and rails, which provides you hold, pivot, projection and the freedom to rip as hard as ever. To keep the party going, we dug into the archives and found some vintage mid-80’s, fluorescent logos and recreated CI’s iconic layup from that era.
For maximum performance, we highly recommend pairing the board with Futures AMK Keel Fins. Although inspired by classic keel outlines, the all-new AMK template boasts a modern rake shape, graduated tip flex and flat inside foils finely tuned for fast, high-performance surfing. This keel-fin design is built to rip but also ideal for those that just want to groove.
