The BIGBOY big guys! If you are big, you have to go big!!

Anyone over 100kg and of a bigger stature can take advantage of a high performance longboard tailored to a larger person.

With a 24 inch width, it adds an almost shortboard curve to the outline.

The tight pulled running into a clean curve back to the middle, allows smooth yet still tight snaps as the board flexes under the weight of a heavier surfer. A nice balance of flex and Curve in one package. If you thought your surfing days were getting limited with the frustration of not catching many waves, revive your surfing on the Big Boy and be alive.

Catch waves, get stoked and have fun!

THE BIGBOY IS FOR BIG GUYS

As someone with a larger stature, sometimes it's hard to find a board that suffices, the BIGBOY is the one..

The BIGBOY is specifically designed for those with a larger stature, without loosing the performance aspect that is sometimes lost when boards are made for big people.. With an emphasis on high performance longboard, the BIGBOY can do everything its smaller compatriots can..

Average

What you thought of when you designed it?

Designed as a big guys longboard with more area and thickness to carry a bigger guy, with the focus on  performance surfing and less on nose riding, its generous curve through the middle gives it a nice shortboard feel, the low rails make it sensitive…

What is possibly compromises on then?

The extra outline curve makes it more of a challenge to nose ride, it still does nose ride, but needs a certain skill to stop it from going into a drift/spin while on the nose…

Shape details summary | Design info

Outline

Pulled in longboard nose, clean outline with generous curve in the middle into a tighter rounded pin…

At 24 inches wide it can carry a bigger guy into waves easily, the outline is quite curved in the middle then the tail pulls in relatively narrow, so for a longboard it has a lot of outline curve, combined with the performance rocker gives it a free flowing and loose feeling no mater where on the board you stand, so its easy to pump for speed and has a nice rail to rail feeling…Wide tailed boards get really hard to attack the pocket at speed, not so with the Big Boy, even in 2 x overhead waves, the tail is still narrow enough to throw it under heavy sections and whip it from rail to rail..

Rails

Low profile, short board style…

The really low rails do a few different jobs, fat rails are harder to bury, especially at speed, so the low rails make the board super sensitive, responsive into turns and slice through the water nicely, because our stringers are in our rail line, the board has a  greater range of  flex and spring back , but this board at 3 inches thick helps reduce the flexing when a big guy is walking the board, yet the rail line is still freer to flex and spring back nicely..  The low rail is more submerged when walking and nose riding, so the board is nice and stable to walk with water flowing over the rails holding them down, lastly, the bottom edge through the tail is quite tucked under, this gives the board good hold into late drops and a smooth ride in general..

Rocker

Full high performance rocker…

The amount of rocker fits nicely into tighter parts of the wave, yet it is still flat enough to carry without needing to be pumped, but can be  pumped for speed with ease.. The curve is an even curve all the way out the tail, so it still carries speed even if you are standing right on the tail.. The board has a nice squirt or acceleration if you stomp your back foot, as opposed to a tail flip which is like hitting the brakes..

Bottom

Flat Bottom ..

The idea is to keep the board going fast, it already has plenty of features to keep the board loose and sensitive, no need for added contours as the overall design is not dependent on bottom contours for control, also the general Sunova construction with the flexible bottom adds another dimension, so reduces the need for contours..

Deck

Domed

Quite a domed deck from 3” to a really refined and low rail with a really nice thickness distribution, having the nose and tail quite refined, lowers swing weight and keeps the super thin railed tail feeling sensitive and alive out of turns..

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 high performance longboard for bigger guys, being a bigger guy myself, at the time it was designed I was  6-4 and 100kg, it was my go to board, 15 years on, I'm up to 120 kg and the board still works really well, in fact, I can actually duck dive it now as a bonus..
