The SOUL is an absolute quiver killer, if you want only one board that covers a huge range of conditions, this is the one for you.. 

THE SOUL STYLES

So many styles of surfing in one board..

The Soul was designed to suit a huge variety of surfers and styles, if you want to have only one board in your quiver this is the one for you.. With the 4+1 fin setup, you have so many different options to switch up the way the board performs.. If you would like to do some more traditional surfing you can run it as a single, but if you are surfing fast down the line waves, you can switch it up and run it as a quad for speed and hold.. With even more options to play around with!

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

 An all round everyday board that catches waves easy...

Wave type ||| size it's working best

All waves..  ||| From just under waist high up to head and a half, you could push it further...

Maneuvers it does best

General surfing, solid bottom turn, also a wave catcher…

Skill level it's best for

Novice to Advanced, (I think Pro level surfers would feel a bit held back unless they were just into the style)..

Paddle power

Above average

What you thought of when you designed it?

Originally back in the late 90’s the Soul was a single fin, as the retro designs were making a comeback... In recent years people asked for a board similar to the Hayden Shapes Hypto Krypto, when I compared the original Soul to Hayden’s model, they were virtually identical, so we added the extra fins, beefed it up slightly and just kept it in the range under the same name…

What is possibly compromises on then?

Not a high performance board, so if the focus is airs, tight pocket snaps and critical top to bottom surfing, look at something else…

Shape details summary | Design info

Outline

Full nose, Wide point forward, clean outline, rounded pin…

With the fuller nose, it helps the board climb on top of the water a little easier with the first few strokes, having the wide point forward, creates a longer tail and a shorter nose, because the arc of the outline is longer and straighter through the back end its possible to throw the board into larger surf and draw clean solid lines, you essentially have the tail of a longer board, while you gain something in an open larger wave, its also the reason it wont like to jam tight in the pocket and go vert with ease…

Rails

Fuller…

The Rails are relative, as the board does carry some volume, pretty much the same volume as the Boss, overall rail shape nose to tail is fairly generic, the goal being a board that has a wide operating range..

Rocker

Medium, slightly flatter…

With this  rocker, the board carries into waves really well, keeps its speed over dead sections and catches waves really easy, good carry in cutbacks on softer sections..

Bottom

Single concave..

The wider nose and longer tail outline arc, slightly reduces reaction time as you lean forward and on rail to initiate a turn, the single helps the rail engage a little earlier while also squirting water off the opposite rail, helping it on rail earlier.....

Deck

Standard

Deck is a fairly standard profile, with the overall board being a little thicker, this carries volume out to the rails in proportion, as well as into the nose and tail.. This volume in general offers a level of comfort when paddling and catching waves, the first few strokes are not spent climbing out of the water..

Fins

4 plus 1  

Personally I like this board as an outright single fin, the single fin sits deeper in the water, so its operating in clean green water and tapping into a little more power deeper in the wave, so it finds speed all by itself, if you think about where dolphins place themselves while surfing, they are really in the power zone, ultimately the board becomes very versatile, Single, Twin, Thruster, 2 plus 1 or quad…

Final Statement

A fun board that everyone can ride and catch waves on, if you can only own one board, then this is the board to have, the Soul is a quiver in one board and offers more range and versatility than any other.…
