This is me crying (im obviously not a very good actor) because my beloved green 9’6 noserider is up for sale.
Its been my go-to board for the last 12 months, has been to Java and on countless roadtrips and has never done me wrong.
This board goes amazing on the nose and teaches you how to surf a traditional log properly. If you treat it right it will keep on a wave till there is no water left in front of you, it picks up any bump in the ocean and extends every ride due to its amazing flow through the water.
Up for sale for $950 shipped to your door, if you are looking for a proper log I guarantee this is the board!
Volane cloth noserider 9’6 x 23 1/2 x 3 1/8 Made heavy, at 12kg its true to the classic logs of the 70′s and will trim for days.
The noserider model also known as Sargent Trim has gone through some updates over the last few months.
We updated the shape at the start of the year and have been making a few for the staff, team riders and good customers who were keen to be part of the evolution of the board, try something new and give some feedback.
As the NR is the board I’m out on every day at Snapper or the pass I was happy when Dave started to make a few and ride one himself. We were happy with the new template we had at the start of the year but were keen to keep it evolving until we had a board that not only looks right but has all of the ingredients to make a board that would be superior to any other nose rider out there, no compromises for turning ability or to keep up with whats cool, a straight out tip riding machine.
To make a good nose rider what you are really doing is creating a board that holds trim in any situation by having all of the elements and curves flowing and working together so not to disturb the water flow and trim. Once you get that right you automatically have a board that has flow and moves through the water cleanly and with style.
The changes we have made give you this, we have concentrated on getting the rails and deck contour through the tail to flow and work together, this is what keeps you perched on the nose while the water is being sucked onto the deck of the tail. The other change is in the rail line and outline of the nose, this is for forgiveness, when it starts to go wrong or you are riding choppy conditions and your starting to nosedive the higher rail line in the nose will dig you out and get you trimming again.
These changes need to been see in person to appreciate so come in check one out and take my board for a ride and you will see what I’m on about!
