Favorite shortboard I have ever owned. Perfect mix of a fish and a high performance quad. Board goes heaps fast and turns like a hot knife through butter. Not many people know how awesome this board is. Custom orders are the way to go!! - Will Allen

6'4" Channel Twin Prototype:
Matt made this style of prototype for Chris Del Moro last year and I immediately thought the board looked insane. So I asked Matt if I could get one shaped and he made me a 6”4 twin fin loaded with pure fun. This board surfed well in any size or condition. I even rode it in Hawaii. This board proves that Matt is not just a longboard shaper. He can shape any board for any condition. Let him know what board you are dreaming and thinking of because he’s got a board for you. - Will Allen
