Phone: 201-259-4655

Comments: High-performance shortboard with the added volume to counter wintertime rubber. The outline has a “GOFAST” continuous curve and aggressive mentality. One of my favorite boards to ride and tested recently in Tahiti — #shred!

Comments: The Musubi model takes the volume of a retro style shortboard and slaps a slice of high performance on it. Wrapped all together with colored fiberglass and a five-fin setup, this design has you ripping in style.

Comments: First-time riders describe this board as having the ability to read the rider’s mind and go to where they desire.

Comments: Designed to excel in smaller, mushier waves, yet still has hold and control in waves up to slightly overhead. Fast and generates down the line speed in slower waves. Full template to carry speed through sections and still allow for maneuverability. Millennium Foam Blank, Appelcore Performance Stringer, EST Vector/Carbon Fabric, S-Glass.

Comments: Team rider Josh Nicastro’s signature board, the Nasty Model is a performance design with full single concave that generates speed and maintains it throughout maneuvers. A small tail hip with accelerated rocker and soft forward rails gives this board control while still allowing forgiveness in critical sections.

Comments: Meet your next groveler. The UFO features lower nose rocker and full curved outline making it easy to catch anything. The bottom concave generates speed and keeps the board quick on the wave or over the lip. Optional tri, quad, or five-fin setup available.

Comments: The Cheater carries the width and thickness of a longboard and is perfect for the rider who still wants to bottom turn and hit the lip with power. Bottom concave with the swallowtail allows for speed down the wave and fast release in the tail for quick turns. Comes as tri or quad-fin setup. Larger boards are available as 2+1.

Comments: Single-fin, pintail, flat to vee for smooth transitions rail to rail.

Comments: The latest “recreational vehicle” in the …Lost Domesticated Series, The RV gives a little bit off the bottom and top end compared to the …Lost Couch Potato and LayZboy, but has a snappier, hard-carving performance that is unique to this shape.

Comments: The Shogun is a series of barrelchasing boards I’ve designed with like-minded surfers and close friends. Ideal for steep, hollow beachbreaks or tubing reef waves, the Shogun’s bottom is a paradoxical blend of old and new, which highlights the “less is more” theory when riding the tube.

Comments: This 5’10” powerhouse is made for whatever Florida has to offer. Good for a surfer in the 150-pound range, single concave through the hull.

Comments: Small-wave weapon. Gradual entry rocker flowing into a concave/vee combo makes this board fast and maneuverable. This board is made to ride shoulder-high and under surf. Great in EPS or poly. Five-fin setup. Should be ordered 3-4” under your regular shortboard.

Comments: More progressive super fun fish for breaking out of the wave or the blues. Go vertical, hit it square, or just make crazy-arse batfish sections. Made in the USA, handshaped by Tom Neilson.

www.TomNeilsonShapes.com

Instagram: @nightmareshapes Comments: Obliterate and decimate the realm of the under head-high is the name of the game. Magic rockers and foil combined with strategically placed meat make high-performance shredding in low-performance conditions a reality. Tested by butchers, shredders, and common folk across the globe, all craft are available in PU, EPS, CoreVac, or the pictured C3 (carbon/cork/composite) “Blackdart” for those wanting featherweights, bling, and added durability.

Comments: CJ Hobgood’s board of choice, the Vandal is a high-performance shortboard that works well in all conditions. Has a slightly forward outline with a little extra foam in the front and a little lower entry rocker. Squashtail with a deep single to double concave and extra vee make it one of our most responsive boards.

Has a slightly forward outline with a little extra foam in the front and a little lower entry rocker. Squashtail with a deep single to double concave and extra vee make it one of our most responsive boards.

Comments: Dreaming about waves? Everyday function due to moderate rocker, full rails, and a wider nose outline. Single to double concave and pulled in thumbtail help The Dreamcatcher hold in big, hollow surf.

Comments: Robert worked with Torrey Meister to develop a board mixed between the Black Punt and White Diamond 2. The El Tormentor goes mental in small to medium-sized beachbreaks, specifically designed for maintaining speed through the flat spots while keeping control in hard turns in critical sections.

Comments: The Groveler is an essential tool for any East Coaster’s quiver. It makes a ramp-fest out of summer slop but holds its own up to head-high-plus. A wider outline, deep single concave, and low rocker make this board fly down the line and skate over flat sections.

Comments: The Option is a versatile board for waves in the waist to overhead range. Relaxed rocker with a single to vee bottom contour make this board fly down the line and flow rail to rail effortlessly.

Comments: Model series is based on the smallwave boards I do for Josh Burke from Barbados. Board pictured is custom for Quinn at Blue Sky Surf Shop in St. Augustine, FL.

Comments: Although I have a wide variety of models, I do specialize in custom designs with personalized attention. The artwork on this board was designed by the customer himself. Board designed for small to mediumsized waves with tri-fin setup.

Reduced tail area and wings allow user-friendly flow on the back foot while wider nose allows for speed, control, and great landing plane for off the top. Deep single concave to slight double vee out the back.
