I don’t write this lightly, but I have given myself plenty of time to feel out my board and am compelled to give you some feedback.
A couple of months ago I bought one of your stock racing mullet boards, 5’10″x19-3/4″x2-7/16″ with a sweet looking orange tail. Since the purchase I have been lucky enough to get to surf everything from solid cyclone swells at the superbank and a solid south swell at Angourie back beach, to hollow and fat beachies of all sizes from Fingal to Pottie.
Where previously I was alternating between a 6′ 4″ shortie and a 6′ 0″ twin keel fish, I now have no need to pack anything other than the racing mullet. At 186cm tall and 90kg, the dynocore construction floats me easily and the response through turns is remarkable.
This is, for me, the perfect board. Versatility and performance without any compromise.
Thanks, and please continue to produce gems like these.
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 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!
This is the newest creation out of the factory for testing, a Modern-Vintage/Dynocore performance Simmons.
Normally we keep the Dynocore technology for the performance shortboards as the flex and liveliness suits them better, and for the reto boards we stick with the traditional 6oz glass job to give them some weight and feel.
However lately I have been riding a board that I found amongst the pile of Dave’s experimentation’s, a performance quad Mini Simmons that was made a few years ago before the boom of the Simmons and it has blown me away! The Simmons is known as a small wave board but this thing is foiled out and goes best when the waves get big, long and hollow.
So the next step was to recreate this magic performance Simmons in Dynocore to push it even further, and this is what we have come up with. I took it to Straddie yesterday and got a few sucky shoulder high drainers and it did exactly what I wanted it to, getting in early, making speed out of nothing and sitting in the pocket perfectly.
This is a demo so if you want to see how it goes drop into the store, steal it off me and take it for a spin.
Well here is a new one fresh out of the lab… a new Model at that. Born out of the desire to have something to ride thats comfortable and easy to use on the bigger days that are not so longboard friendly. You know, easy to paddle and catch waves but also duckdivable and can handle tube, The fin setup is the tried and true 2+1…
now to the Name… the prefix is GM… Grand Master, the General Manager, Greenmount Machine, Go Man… not sure yet..
The Construction is Dynocore Cork. 7’2″x 21 1/2″x 2 7/8″ =48.6 litres.
So.. if you had to make a modern surfboard and you had to start from scratch using nothing you could buy from a common surf blank factory like Burfords or South Coast foam. Where would you start? The board build has to be commercially viable. The board has to perform better and be more durable than common boards board of today to be accepted. It has to be greener (Environment Friendly) and is has to be custom (made as an individual board with its own unique specs). It Has to be made local in Australia.
How long will this project take you? How much will this development cost?
