The Coffin Lid HP
- Zak's idea was to create a bigger shortboard shape with maximum volume with minimal impact on performance. Basically a model that would allow people to retain the shortboard approach - but give them the extra foam they need.
Utilizing a flat deck that rapidly tapers down to a slimmer, performance rail - this model packs in the foam while retaining the sensitivity and bite of a much smaller board. The rocker is a fairly standard medium curve and the bottom is a single to double concave (subtly tweaked but really not too dissimilar to other shortboards we have in the range).
Zak has put plenty of edge in the tail (far up past the fins) and utilized a squashed diamond tail shape which gives this bigger boards plenty of liveliness and release. You'll be surprised how much squirt and maneuverability you get out of a board of this size.
Grab one of these and get ripping!!
