El Pavote (Spanish for 'fat wild turkey')
My current favorite board…..best summed up – easy speed with maximum hold for performance surfing. El Pavote is basically the Falcon model with all the spiral vee through the back half of the board shaped out of the bottom; and replaced with a deep even single concave with subtle doubles running the length of the back 1/3 of the rocker and off the tail block. So….what all that technical jargon means practically is that the El Pavote has more hold off your back foot so you can leave the gas at full throttle through turns, push on it as hard as you like and it will push back and redirect with smooth positive drive not unlike the speed with which demons got the boot from God’s heavenly kingdom at the dawn of time.
You can get this board with the Apache tail, the swallow tail, the diamond tail, or the rounded diamond winger tail. This one has parabolic channels for a V8 under the hood.
For effortless skating in weak waves whilst performing devastating fin hucks and buckets like a riot-quelling water cannon. Ride this board 4-5 inches shorter and 3/4” wider than your standard good waves shortboard.
