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!”
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！」
