THE WAVEHOG has the surfabilty of a shortboard, with the paddle power of a longer board. With these two aforementioned attributes, you can see where it got its name.

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

An everyday all round board suited to advanced older surfers and all levels of everyone else.

Wave type ||| size it's working best

All waves. From just under waist high up to double overhead and more.

Maneuvers it does best

Carves and solid back foot hacks.

Skill level it's best for

Novice to aging Pro.

Paddle power

Average.

What you thought of when you designed it?

Originally it was designed as a hybrid mini mal for entry level surfers, but it always seemed to appeal to a slightly older demographic of good surfers who wanted both performance and slightly more paddle power.

What it possibly compromises on then?

None, except it may not surf as deep in the pocket as you want, in which case, you're still young and flexible enough to be riding your high performance shortboard.

Design info

Outline

Fuller nose clean outline rounded pin. The overall length to width ratio is identical to our Pro shortboard model. For juicy waves the Pro is an excellent board, so the Wavehog shares the same tail and arc in the outline as most modern performance step up designs. These features coupled with a fuller nose that adds extra paddle power make it a really user friendly performance board. The fuller nose straightens the center outline arc slightly, giving good down the line speed and drive around sections, you could almost classify it as an all rounder for solid waves.

Rails

Standard to low profile. A lot of boards at this length assume the rider needs extra float and generally come with thicker rails which are harder to bury and have less sensitivity. The Wavehog rails are relatively refined, even more in the tail, so it feels more like a high performance shortboard.

Rocker

Full high performance rocker. With this amount of rocker the board fits nicely into tighter parts of the wave. It prefers being pumped for speed if you want a quick get away, instead of someone waiting for it to build its own momentum. Even though it's rockered it's generally ridden at slightly longer lengths, so the area and rail line also help with carrying into a wave and around sections, so it will still work for a person who may not work the board as hard to gain speed.

Bottom

Single Concave. The concave harmonizes nicely with this design, the fuller nose straightens the outline, which will draw a slightly longer line when on rail. The concave helps initiate the turn earlier, by engaging the inside rail deeper and earlier. While the outside rail releases water in such a way, to assist getting the board on rail. 

Deck

Standard. Not much going on here apart from thickness distribution. Having the nose and tail quite refined reduces swing weight and keeps the tail feeling sensitive and flexy.

Fins

Thruster. For sure the best performance option, I personally like to run a slightly smaller tail fin, as this frees the tail up a little better in tight under the lip style turns and snaps in general.

Final Statement

A good all round board for everyone, it likes juice and is well suited to advanced older riders. Almost a quiver in one board.
