   Longboard Features:

  • Parallel Nose Channel:                                                                                                                                      Helps with early wave entry and maintaining planning speed on the wave. Also water is made to compress and speed up through the channel creating "lift", for increased stability when nose riding.

  • Medium Width:                                                                                                                                           Allows for nice stable board with relatively early wave catching and great maneuverability.

  • Pin tail:                                                                                                                                                           The sharp pin tail offers great hold in steeper wave faces and gives you a easier subtle shift dynamic when turning.

  • Squash tail (option):                                                                                                                                           An adaptation of the square tail it allows the water to fan out across the flat section giving you acceleration. But, unlike a traditional square tail it holds the rail in the wave face more like a pin tail.

  • Soft to performance rail:                                                                                                                             Hard rails in the tail and nose area creates great hold in the wave and allows you to project out of your bottom turns. Combined with the softer rail in the fuller central part of the board this board releases when turning and water spirals along the curve when walking the board helping with stability on the wave side edge.

  • Flat Belly to slight V:                                                                                                                                    The flat allows the board to plane flat sections and the V through the tail gives this board a smooth rail to rail transition.

  • Fin Set Up:                                                                                                                                                   This board comes as a 2 + 1 Set up (two sides and a longboard box center)  in all sizes off the shelf. Side fins are Fcs1 or  Fcs2 on PU boards and Future system on epoxylite boards.

  • Double Stringer:                                                                                                                                            An option on some models, the double stringer looks amazing and is a real homage to the 'good ole days' of surfing past. Back in the 50s and 60s the multiple stringers offered a way to strengthen your board. With the wood running the full length of your board it was much less prone to snapping. These days however, foam and fiberglass technology is very advanced and really it is more of an atheistic treat.

  • Construction:                                                                                                                                                 The Classic comes in either PU or Epoxylite construction. PU is the traditional construction of closed cell foam, stringer, fibreglass and polyster resin. Epoxylite is asuper lightweight open cell foam with stringer, fibreglass and epoxy resin to finish. Note all epoxy's are made abroard so custom option is not usually available.

  • Cloth:                                                                                                                                                                All boards feature 1 x 6oz + 1 x 4ozglass on deck and double 4oz  underneath. With custom build we can add layers or change weights.

The Custard Point Classic is our best selling medium volume longboard and is great longboard for all wave types and conditions.

 

It was first shaped by Tim Mellors in the late eighties and has stood the test of time with little enhancements needed. The board borrows its curves from the traditional Malibu pintails of the 60's and combines them with more modern performance enhancing features. The parabolic nose channel (also found in the Ultimate Nose Rider) allows it to nose ride extremely well, but the boards sleeker profile and the high performance rails makes this board very lively and effortless to turn. 

 

This rail profile makes it hold well on steeper faces and if the swell picks up unlike the higher volume models, it is much easier to handle or even duck dive.

The Classic also features two tail shapes either a rounded pin giving a lively feel or a semi squash tail for more projection and added stability.The functional design and rocker profile of this board will help you to make the most out of medium to head high waves. However, it still goes well in small waves as I regularly take it out in 'The Bay' here at Towan.

We run The Classic in three sizes 8'6, 9'1 and 9'6, the 8'6 is proving very popular with the ladies and for those wanting an easier carry or folk with storage and transport issues.

 

Available in both off the shelf and as custom builds and some models even feature 60s style twin stringers.

Tim rides this board in Bali most of the time without needing to check conditions....
