Pig Performer Series

A new kind of board for a new era of stylish surfing, combining attributes from all eras. Imagine the glide and trim from the 60's combined with Jeff Hackman’s style from the 70's and 80’s Tom Curren on a bladed out narrow gun in Hawaii.

I was inspired by the early 60s pig outline because I found that wide-point-back longboards make for the loosest boards, a design element that dominates all other elements including rocker, rails, and foil. Then I set out to design a board that was 8'6" but turned like a 7'6" and paddled like a 9’6” by balancing the design elements. I started with a refined flat rocker for glide, speed, and paddling. Then added the key to smooth-turning which is a refined, thinned out, down-rail at the wide point to give control and hold in bigger waves. The outcome was astonishing.  The wave catching was way beyond my expectations, and my conclusion was the narrow nose and volume in the tail pointed the board down the swell, consequently catching the wave sooner with much less effort. The turning was next level for a board of its size.  The Pig Performer Series is a breath of fresh air for any surfer seriously looking for a board that is easy and satisfying in every way.
