shaper

 

No, I’m not making up some weird name for a surfboard just to get your attention.  There is definitely nothing strange about the performance of this baby.  We continue our shaper series with one of South Coast’s newest board creations, the Chub.  Summer is upon us and shaper Larry Ricci has given us all a treat with this new design.  A board that will give one more performance than what you may be getting from your small wave shredder.

The Chub, as it is affectionately known, is designed for those surfers in mind that like a little more manueverability and speed than they may get from the traditional egg or longboard shape without sacrificing wave catching ability.  This board can also take the place of the fish, which also offers those elements as well.  The difference being, with the Chub, there isn’t as much volume as with a fish and can be a great transition from the short board design you might be currently riding.  It’s best heard from shaper Larry Ricci himself, so check out the video that goes along with this post. 

As with all of our South Coast shaped boards, you can demo the Chub at our South Coast Shops, free of charge.  A great way to test out a board before making the investment.  On June 20th, at Crystal Pier, all boards including the Chub, will be on display to demo.  To pick up the Chub, or any other surfboard that South Coast has to offer, stop by any of our five location in San Diego or shop online at southcoast.com. 

We continue with our “shaper series”, about some of the hottest surfboard models South Coast Surf Shops has to offer. Last time we checked out the Prod Quad, and got an insider view of all that board could offer. This week we will take a magic carpet ride on the South Coast Swegg, so hold on tight. Come on a tour with Robin Prodanovich as he points out some of the great features that the Swegg will provide you.

Available from 6’8″ to 8’6″ the Swegg is our most popular mid-sized board. Part egg, part modern fish, this multi-fin design paddles great and works in small to overhead surf with ease. Really a fun hybrid board that many levels of surfer will appreciate. If this looks like a board that you can’t wait to get your hands on, stop by any of our five South Coast Surf Shop Locations or online at Southcoast.com. This board is available to demo if you want to see how this baby rides before making the investment.
