After a full season of riding and perfecting the Dharma, Matt Calvani wanted to continue the evolution with the Swee’ Pea so he moved the wide point slightly back and pulled in the nose/tail. Going with more curve on the bottom and a single deeper concave out the wide rounded tail makes this board surf top to bottom better and handle more critical drops and sections. Then he increased the tail rocker to ensure the water would release enabling the surfer to drive this board hard off the bottom and release off the top with controlled speed. Like the Simmons and Dharma, he maintains the thinned out tail and rail for increased sensitivity. He also eliminated the concave deck, which was intended to maintain the Dharma’s flat rocker but increase the board’s sensitivity, and went with a slightly domed deck to get optimized floatation for surfers of varying builds and weight. The rounder outline, in comparison to the parallel Dharma, also lends itself to quicker, more responsive direction changes and can handle more power and speed. The Swee’ Pea is ideal for intermediate to advanced surfers, looking for a board for small to head high plus days. This model can be ridden at the same length as your Dharma, but unlike its predecessor can be sized up to much longer lengths to suit a wider range of surfers.
