When I set out to design the California Square, my goal was to make a faster noserider that could surf any type of wave on any coast. I felt on certain waves I was getting caught behind on sections especially on mushy, crumbly waves. So in conceptualizing the Cali Square, the idea was to go back to design basics. With an 18 1/2" nose and 17" tail, I achieved a more parallel outline. Then I offset the wide tail with a thinner rail with more belly in the tail to keep it loose in turns. At first I went very flat with the rocker but found I wasn’t getting enough lift in the pocket when noseridering, so instead, I kept adding tail rocker while keeping the nose rocker flat until I achieved a good balance between speed and lift. I maintained a medium depth blended concave. The only trade-off with the design is that because the board does run faster than my other models, it forces you to burn speed and stall properly to get good long noserides. I feel it's an exciting and challenging board that ultimately results in longer overall rides. - Matt Calvani, shaper/designer
