Madagascar bound Barrel hunter.

Been given the chance to recreate one of the best boards I have ever owned. Customer came to me asking for a smaller, more maneuverable board to compliment his 7.6 single for some duty in Madagascar. I was thinking over some ideas and then it just hit me out of the blue. Scaled up from its original 6.0 to 6.6 and given a modern rocker, foil and bottom contour. Did away with the bumps on the tail as they seemed unnecessary for the wave type. The original board was a smoker. Shaped by Johnny Paarman in the late seventies under the Lighning Bolt- Pure Source label here in South Africa.

9.4 Sunset gun

A trippy 70's style low rocker gun for Sunset reef and Kom. Purple tint bottom with a red cut in deck. First test rides are looking very good. The additive S-wings really come into play on the turns, but it all turns solid and gunny in a straight line. Heaps of paddle speed. Come on Winter!!
