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.
Added Width: Allows for very stable board with early wave catching and great .
Wide Pin tail: The pin tail offers great stability and hold in wave faces and gives you a easier subtle shift dynamic when turning.
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 Wide is basically a high volume version of our best selling medium volume longboard The Classic.
This board with its extra flotation and surface area gives excellent wave catching ability, increases the stability for walking and allows longer on the nose.
The features of the original stay the same, however this board is now more of a small wave longboard with a bit more liveliness than your average log.
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.
The Classic also features a rounded pin giving more hold and rotation in the face. The functional design and rocker profile of this board will help you to make the most out of small to medium waves.
We run The Classic in three sizes 8'6, 9'1 and 9'6, with the 9'6 only available currently as a custom option.
Available in both off the shelf and as custom builds and some models even feature 60s style twin stringers.
"I crossed The Ultimate Nose Rider Volume with the sleekness of The Classic. The result is a small wave board with loads of liveliness."
