Wondering whats goin on in the R&D wing.

Love the look of your current board, but its a nice allrounder. 

Wondering if there are plans for a small wave board… read short quad style board

Happy rocktober yall.

The 2012 boards page include a 5’7” Quad. Don’t know anymore than that.
Hopefully it will be a bit wider than the 5’11”

ok found that pdf.  Hadnt seen that one yet.  Looks like the right idea.  A rundown on the shape would be killer.  Bamboo top and bottom? 

Stoked the lineup is gonna grow a little.

The new Quad 5"11 has a touch more tail rocker than the Classic 5"11 Thruster. Ross tuned the new quad to be more of a true surf style wave riding machine, while the Classic Thruster remains a great all around shape waves, chop, flat water.
All the 2012 Quad boards feature bamboo veneer top and bottom.
I’ve been riding the 2012 proto 5’11 (bamboo) since March and its my still my go to board. The combination epoxy bamboo gives the board a snappy feel while taking the abuse of living in the back of my truck!
