Step Up Thruster
Keith Teboul: “This is our step up shape. I worked on this shape as myself and Lalo Goya always have a step up and we thought it was time to bring this to our line of boards. I made a few samples of this board and Ian Gentile was so stoked on one of the boards it ended up going on the QS this last year with him. All the boards I made for Kai, Ian and Imai for the North Shore this year are all based on this design.
Step up meaning your go to board when the waves are bigger and more powerful. I would say this is a medium step up meaning it has more range than a full blown step up. These boards could be used as your day to day good wave board.
This means the board has a bit of a wider tail and the wide point isn’t as far forward. It has a medium tail rocker with a medium entry. This allows the board to handle heavier waves and turn at faster speeds. A medium rail for some grab and yet forgiving enough for the faster speeds.
This board comes in thruster with Future boxes.
This board sits alone with the Crusher in that it’s at the top of the food chain for performance in pumping surf. We are doing this in PUE construction which is the tradition- al polyurethane wood stringer blank but we add the newer feature of epoxy resin for a quicker flex and more durability.”
