The DYNAMO's original concept came from Vance Burrows around 2000. He wanted something with the paddle power of his longboard and performance of a short board. So it's like you got a 9’ longboard and chopped 2 feet out of the middle…

We made it. He loved it and so did everyone after him...

THE DYNAMO IS THE SHORTEST LONGBOARD YOU WILL FIND

It really is like having a short, longboard..

The DYNAMO is a really versatile board, it has a performance shortboard rocker so it surfs really well off the tail, allowing you to get vertical in sections you wouldn't think a wide nose would go.. Given the generous area in the nose, roundhouse cutbacks off the whitewater are effortless. If you are an advanced surfer you also might be able to get some toes over, on a shortboard sounds strange, but it's a euphoric experience!

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

A wave catching machine you can have fun on...

Wave type ||| size it's working best

Most wave types, excluding sucky bowly waves with tight pockets, likes down the line waves..  ||| from just under waist high up to double overhead..

Maneuvers it does best

Clean round house cut backs, carves and making sections…

Skill level it's best for

Novice to Pro...

Paddle power

Well above average

What you thought of when you designed it?

Originally the concept came from Vance Burrows around 2000, He wanted something with the paddle power of his longboard with performance of a short board, so its like you got a 9’ longboard and chopped 2 feet out of the middle…

What is possibly compromises on then?

The straighter section of outline through the middle gives the board a longer feel, draws the turns, makes it feel a little stiffer to pump for speed, the wide nose doesn’t like being pushed too deep in the pocket or snapping under the lip…

Shape details summary | Design info

Outline

Long board style nose, clean outline, rounded pin…

With the full longboard nose, it helps the board climb on top of the water really fast with the first few strokes, the center outline runs a longer straighter arc, so when on rail it really keeps speed, maintains great down the line speed and easily drives around sections, the area in the nose, loves whitewater, you climb onto and over whitewater like it was green water, so it feels super stable in round houses where you hit the white water, the tail still pulls in relatively tight, so off the back foot you can still get a decent snap, but not too close to the pocket, or the nose can get in the way..

Rails

Low, short board performance style…

The low rails offer some sensitivity, the first thing you do when turning is bury one rail, low and it drops in quicker and easier, this helps off set some of the stiffness coming from the outline..

Rocker

Medium rocker…

With this amount of rocker, the board stays nice and fast and maintains good carry and paddle speed…

Bottom

Flat Bottom..

Fast and reliable, to date its been a fun all round board to ride, I would probably be open to dropping a single concave through the tail of this board..

Deck

Standard

Deck is a fairly standard profile, the board is not super thick, so even tho it has low rails, the roll is quite comfortable...

Fins

Thruster

For top to bottom surfing the thruster is always the best performance option..

Final Statement

A good all round board for softer yet fast waves, great paddle power and carry, if you have a carvy style and don’t like flicking your board around, its perfect, likes to be surfed with the emphasis on drawn arcs and power surfing, one aspect we never thought about when it was designed, its actually a great board for big airs, the amount of nose area allows it to sail onto the wind with a cross onshore..
