La LONGGUN, une planche pour surfer du gros.

Au départ ce devait être un longboard de compétition... En étant un habitué des compétitions en Australie, on peut très bien se présenter à un contest et se retrouver confronté à des vagues qui vous arrivent au genou à Avalon Point ou du 5 fois overhead à Yallingup, il nous fallait donc un longboard qui puisse se surfer sur tout ce qui se présente.

Nose de longboard étiré, outline épuré assez droit qui se termine sur un tail rounded pin fin.

Un bon longboard pour du gros, plus d’une tête de haut.

About the board

General goal | theme of the board

A Super refined high performance longboard that does a bit of everything..

Wave type ||| size it's working best

All waves..  ||| From just under waist high up to double over head and more..

Maneuvers it does best

All round performance and it goes vert really well…

Skill level it's best for

Everyone

Paddle power

Average

What you thought of when you designed it?

Originally designed as the go to competition Longboard, it had to perform to a high standard as well as nose ride in all conditions.. 

What is possibly compromises on then?

With the focus on performance, having an advanced full performance rocker, it lacks glide when the waves get really small and soft, so at really low speeds the nose rocker pushes water and you fall off the back of soft rolling waves when trying to nose ride…

Shape details summary | Design info

Outline

Traditional clean longboard outline subtle flyer rounded pin..

The outline is relatively balanced with the widest point in the middle, it does carry some width to around 3ft from the tail before pulling in to a performance short board outline, so the board can be pumped for speed easily and can be surfed freely off the tail, if you have never owned one, you will basically freak out at how well this board can surf…

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 and responsive into turns, because our stringers are in our rail line, the board has a  greater range of  flex and spring back, 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 give the board good hold into late drops and a smooth ride in general.. 

Rocker

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

Standard

Not much going on here apart from thickness distribution, having the nose and tail quite refined, lowers swing weight and keeps the tail feeling sensitive..

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 high performance Long board that will blow you away, how good it surfs, a combination of tried and tested shape with superior technology adding to the performance…
