Asher Pacey test’s the Dynocre Racing Mullet for Waves magazine

[vimeo https://vimeo.com/49657363]

We sent Asher a 5’6 x 19 1/4 x 2 1/4 Racing Mullet dynocore with 25 litres for him to ride around Indo for the Waves board test.

As you can see he its ripping on the thing in all conditions, from 2 foot sloppy ones to 5 foot reef wedges.

Th Racing Mullet our most popular and most versatile short board, and works even better in the Dynocore construction. It gives you that spring in and out of turns that he is talking about, you surf faster and with more power because every bit of force you put into the board on a bottom turn or pump down the line you get back from the flex in the board when it springs back.

Its an amazing feeling, so if you haven’t tried it yet make sure you drop into the store and take Asher’s board or one of the other demo boards out for a surf and see for your self.

Asher Pacey rates the Dynocore Racing Mullet

Asher tested the Racing Mullet in Indo recently for the Waves board test, here is what he had to say;

This board is epoxy, its really light and got a couple of crazy features. The deck’s scooped out and there’s a slight concave under your front foot. Having no stringer, you can kinda feel it spring you in and out of turns and I think thats definitely a positive thing. My first surf on this board was in kinda small conditions but it was actually really wedgey and punchy, so I could pick up a few things out of that surf. One was that it sprung out of turns really well. It felt really positive and lively and thats normally something I look for in a good, fun short board. I think it would probably be suited to more general beach breaks in Australia, where you wants to get a bit more out of your surf. Its a high performance board, I’ve got no doubts about that, and its got some features that really serve their purpose. 

Asher was surfing a 5’6 x 19 1/4 x 2 1/4 Dynocore Racing mullet with 25 liters, its one of our most popular shapes for someone looking for a good all round shortboard. Its a great beach break groveler and lights up when put in good conditions. Combine this with the extra durability, spring and speed you get out of turns from the Dynocore construction and you can see why we cant keep up with the demand for this particular model.

The board Asher rode will be available in store for demo for the next few months, so come and take it for a ride and see for yourself what the hype is all about, once you feel that extra spring from a turn you wont go back to your standard board, guaranteed!

Quads for Power… Tahiti Pro Finals all Quads

On tahiti this week it was great to see the pros really starting to understand quad fin boards now, I remember the shock when Danny Fuller used a quad a Tehopu WCT about 4 years ago.. Kelly has been trailblazing away for a few years on them but its good to see some of the others catching up..
Even Mick and Joel fought out the final on Quads…

Back when i started shaping i played around with a few quads inspired by Glen Winton and Jack Knight. I enjoyed them but found it hard to sell them to everyone riding potato chip short boards. Early 2000 i started on my second coming of quad fin boards, it took time to get more advanced surfers accepting the benefits. Here is a pic from 2006 of one of our mates Andy Campbell riding a Diverse DQ Quad in Indo.

Wish the waves were like that today.. I’m sure they are somewhere!
