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.
