Hideoscillous | Carbon Footprint

Hideoscillous | Carbon Footprint

$ 999.00

Product Specs

An extreme combination of modern hull contours produces the glide of ‘free-friction’ between turns which intersects with the hold of a back foot ‘clamp’. A pedal-to-the-metal bear down of ultimate gougeability through maneuvers. The carbon/ kevlar stringerless epoxy construction makes this a very lively summertime, average waves section-making, buckets to the roof machine. 

  • Dimensions: can be customized in production options area
  • Tail Shape: wide squash
  • Construction: Carbon Footprint | Carbon Rail stringerless = The Carbon Reinforced rail w/ stringerless foam core provides a spring-loaded flex + self-adjusting rocker that form fits to the specific curve of the wave you're riding, adding incredible momentum through maneuvers. 3-5+ x the strength & durability of a poly/pu. 
  • Fins: customizable (tip: bigger fins give more drive)
  • NOTE: TRACTION PAD & PETE'S STICKERS NOT INCLUDED

Hideoscillous

ie. Hideous Oscillations
from the Latin root hideous to the eye, yet one possessing beautiful oscillating motions in the water. 
The old adage ‘looks can be deceiving’ & ‘true beauty lies within’ are the driving forces of this compact possessor of an unassuming depth of character. This one – the Hideoscillous, transforms small surf like no other board I’ve made ’til now - it feels like the board rides on air – no friction – yet holds & corners on rails while balancing controlled lip release.

It's like a healthy marriage between free friction & ultimate gouge-ability.

I may go so far as to say that this new rocker & steep concave bottom can be placed on any outline & foil to exponentially increase both the glide & horsepower. The ugly duckling that transforms into a swan when you step foot on it.
Ride approximately 6″ – 7″ shorter, 1 1/4″ wider & 1/8″ thicker than your good waves performance shorty. 
I have been pondering a new paradigm for rockers & hull contours for over three years now. The days pass & I’ve continued to grind out & refine existing concepts … all the while knowing something new was coming. A groaning of enlightened concept awaiting a bursting forth. Why did I wait this long? Well, things must germinate … and I didn’t think I could draw in CAD what my mind saw … I would need to hand shape the prototype. A new balanced/centered rocker, moderate entry, low tail rocker, with heavy heavy tow board-like concaves running nose-to-tail & dynamic steep drop rocker concave running dual inset bonzer-esque caves which exhaust straight off the tail block. The outline, width & thickness determine the wave type.
This one – the Hideoscillous, transforms small point surf like no other board I’ve made ’til now it feels like the board rides on air – no friction – yet corners on rails (as hard as you can push it with no slipping) & balances lip release with perfect control. I may go so far as to say that this new rocker & steep concave bottom can be placed on any outline & foil anywhere to increase the horsepower of any board five-fold. 
  • FIN CONFIGURATION: thruster or five fin option to run as tri or quad.
  • WAVE PREFERENCES: small weak point break surf to head high and barreling
  • AVAILABLE TAIL CONFIGURATIONS: wide squash
  • RECOMMENDED RIDER TYPES: beginner to advanced
