I’m getting excited to see the new Surfboards. The Bamboo veneers are a killer addition, as well as the quad-fin option.

The information I have seen is limited and I’m interested in widths, thicknesses, accurate outlines, rail shapes, and descriptions of rocker lines, also fin placement, sizes, shapes, etc.

Often a “brochure” such as what can be linked to on this site, shows inaccurate outlines, so I’m not sure if we’re getting an accurate visual of what the new line offers.

This is an exciting line-up for Ocean Rodeo. I want more info.

Anyone? D

We’re just working on the new web pages for these boards,..should be online in about a week. We’ll include feature shots and specs.
Action shots should be rolling in over the next few weeks as well from various sources. Thanks for the interest!

Thanks.

As I said, low-light-angle photo images of the rails, bottom contour, rocker line, etc. are very helpful in getting an idea of what is offered.

Know that many buyers are educated board riders and most wish for more than a generic top and bottom shot like most of the other brands are giving.

Thanks again. Good Stuff!

1956….....if you look really close at the picture, it looks like the length/width/depth are written on the board. I’m anxious for some details or reviews as well. Some pics of the straps (yeah I still use them quite a bit) would be nice.

Place more info, length alone is not enough. How wide and thick are they. Whats the wheight? Whats the volume?

Wave riding is getting more popular but testing is quite difficult so the extra info can give you a good push in the right direction for chosing your board.
So lame that most companies only give the lenght of a board. Like bying a car, its 5m long….. yeah and…. what about the rest? :D

I see that, but you can not make it out clearly.

Thanks man, any similar shots of the 6’3” ??

Rocker profile (side shot) in the gallery section of the boards web page maybe.

both of those are a bit narrow for us lake landers.  Look like great real deal coastal boards for those who get surfable swell.  Are you guys advising the classic thruster as your small wave groveller?

Hope I dont come off sounding like a spoiled child asking for more when these are brand new to the line up, but I hope you guys consider a “small wave” board someday. 

The shorter, fuller outlined, lower rockered, quad fin modern fish DNA type boards are a clear winner for us lake people.  Not quite as sexy looking, but much better suited to the gutless, slow, wind driven onshore stuff a huge portion of your market deal with consistently.  Much earlier planning than the classic shortboard that are really only decent for us on the biggest of days.  Lots of surf companies with the right shapes out there already, where the market needs help is making em tough enough to handle the airs and abuse they take under a kite without being stiff heavy bricks.  Light and snappy is so key to the fun factor in small little waves.  As a bit of a request if you ever go this route, please do what you can to avoid the classic sharp tipped split fish tails.  A lot of riders are learning to “shove it” tack and punt airs.  I have taken it to the arch and thigh a couple times.  Only thing I would change on my current board.  A simple squash tail with no pointy bits just like what is in the current line up… Please!

I agree, more info. on the surfboards is needed.  Weight/ volume/ and flex would be nice to know.  Nothing beats getting to take one out for a demo session, but not everyone is going to have that opportunity.
