These are crazy times! When conspiracies become realities, and creativity manifests to functionality.
Introducing the Flat Earth: a board built to shred ankle high to overhead surf. Designed by Akila Aipa and dialed-in by Kelly Slater, this model is ready to be your go-to board whatever the conditions of the day.
Finesse and flow in waves chest to head high, sized at your normal shortboard volume or a couple liters more.
Experiment with a twin + trailer or twin without trailer, because this shape surfs on a spectrum from loose and slidey in smaller sizes with two twin fins, to grippy and drivey in larger sizes with a trailer added.
In summary, let the Flat Earth blow your mind as a twin fin, or sip the serum in doses with a trailer fin.
Feel the speed.
Hit the lip.
Bury the rail.
As Akila’s dad – the great, surfer-shaper Ben Aipa – would say, “HOOK IT!”
I like to think of the guy at VG’s Donuts that glazes the donuts. Pretty important dude. Kinda makes or breaks a donut.He’s the GLAZER.
And then you have my number one test pilot – TODD GLASER. He’s been riding this board for close to a decade. We’ve been modifying and tweaking it for years. A little bit of width here… a touch of thickness there… back and forth until we finally agreed that it was ready.
Very round and sleek curves. Gentle rockers. Easy to ride for all levels and easy to ride in all types of waves.
Machado說：「我真的很想玩魚形長板一段時間了...自從我和skip frye待在一起那段時間他向我展示了7'0的魚板，就一直在我腦海裡揮之不去。我一直在思考，第一次嘗試製作了 7'0 長度的 GO FISH ，這張板子真的和我心中想像的一樣，而且非常好衝，接著我又做了一張 7'0 長度的seaside，它變成了我最喜歡的一張板子。現在，不管是及腰的小浪或是一兩人高的浪我都衝它，任何日子不論去哪裡我也都帶著它！」
