The Squad Surfboard Story
One of the best Fun Hybrid Surfboard Shapes on the market today and personally my most successful shape. The Design of the Squad all started with an idea of a more Fish like Rocker Mini Simmons board which would have the skatey feel of a Simmons but with more hold in the Tail. I wanted a Surfboard that could handle any surf you come across in the UK up to about 8ft but it soon became apparent that the Squad really has no limits as far as wave height and conditions. While still being an easy fun surfboard to ride what i achieved was to design a Funboard that can and does take you to places you never would of thought possible on such a shape. In fact the Squad is so good and versatile i have sold more over the years than all of my other boards put together.
Shape design Features of the Squad
What makes the Squad so special then, lets start with the hull its flat through the mid section for speed with a hulled V running through the tail but the secret really lies in the nose section where i have shaped a double hull almost like a chinned rail this gives the board huge lift just like a simmons to allow the surfboard to ride on top of the water rather than in the wave. Secondly the rails on the Squad change from typical simmons rails to a more boxed section near the tail witch really allows the board to bite while also loosen up the ride, this leads to a wide arc tail like a rounded off diamond shortening the rail line and allowing shape turns. The Squad is able to withstand heavy drops and hollow ride while still being able to perform on more sloppy beach break conditions it’s been surfed all over the globe on the some of the best reefs and beaches and has performed above all expectations.
