The OLDY is a board for the longboarding purists.. Bert has never really been a fan of traditional longboarding, as a competitive longboarder himself, he always felt that high performance longboarding was more appealing, throwing big hacks, full round houses with a few nose rides thrown in as well was better than just going straight and getting toes over..  So the OLDY has the most possible performance features designed into a a traditional, legal competition log.. Get back to the roots with flair with the OLDY!   

THE OLDY IS TRADITIONAL

The most traditional board in the SUNOVA range! 

Most of the boards we make here at SUNOVA are geared towards high performance surfing, but the OLDY is one of the exceptions.. With this board we have taken a step back to the grass roots of surfing with a very traditional design that will still perform surprisingly well.. This is one for the purists, and with the SUNOVA BALSA FLEX technology, you can have a board that looks the part as well.. 

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

An old school log based on a retro 60's design...

Wave type ||| size it's working best

All waves with a focus on smaller days..  ||| From knee to 1.5x over head...

Maneuvers it does best

 Nose riding and stalling cutbacks…

Skill level it's best for

Novice to Pro...

Paddle power

Above average…

What you thought of when you designed it?

In recent years, the whole old school log movement has really gained momentum, so the goal was a board that surfed and felt like a traditional longboard, the V and tail rocker allow for a traditional stall that washes off speed, once you step up the nose  the flat rocker allows the board to carry good speed, the soft rail and single fin really lock it in…

What is possibly compromises on then?

V and soft edges offer no squirt from tail maneuvers, its also glassed to a minimum weight of 6 kg (heavier than standard Sunova’s), so you will be bitterly disappointed if you want a board you can throw around off the tail…

Shape details summary | Design info

Outline

Full nose, parallel outline, area rounded square…

Area in the nose always helps with nose riding, especially at lower speeds when your relying on the nose area to plane on top of the water, the parallel outline holds a straighter line while walking and nose riding, the wider tail offers more surface area for the spilling wave to hold the tail down, allowing longer tip time....

Rails

50/50 soft bottom edge all the way…

The finer low rail makes it easier to drop into a turn, but the key feature is the super soft bottom edge, this encourages the water to wrap the rail and flow onto the deck, water on the deck stabilizes the board and locks it into the wave face better, making it feel stable to walk and nose ride..  

Rocker

Flat nose to performance tail rocker…

The flat nose helps with paddle power and carry into the wave, also while on the nose it just tonks along better, maintaining momentum even if the wave slows down, the extra tail rocker was added for 2 reasons; 1. A lot of features in the Oldy stiffen and make the board hard to turn, so the tail rocker offsets this and loosens it up again, 2. A good nose rider needs to slow down when your on the nose, so you can hang in the curl of the wave, nose rocker, extra rocker in general or lastly extra tail rocker will slow a board down, so the goal is slowing the tail down so it drags water, rather than slowing the nose down so it pushes water....

Bottom

Flat nose to Roll center to V in the tail..

I would have preferred no roll or V, but part of the criteria for qualifying as a Log is the 50/50 rail where the apex of the rail is about half way between the top and bottom, the roll and V slow it down when you stomp on the tail, but that is also part of the whole Log feeling...

Deck

Slightly flatter..

The rolled and V bottom bring the apex closer to the deck, leaving the deck flatter...

Fins

Single Fin..

The larger center fin creates a more stable platform to walk on and also holds a cleaner more direct line while nose riding, as you walk, the board has a tendency to rock a little rail to rail if your not walking the center perfectly and lightly, the deeper fin resists this rocky wobbly feeling and keeps the board flat and stable…

Final Statement

Traditional Old school log in both shape and weight..
