The Pork Chop has been in the works for over five years. My goal has been to make a pig that represents the best of the past with modern elements. The outline was the key, a proportional nose and tail that is pleasing to the eye as well as functional. The width in the tail is just right to give plenty of control in turns, and yet maintain speed. As well the nose definitely a pig yet wide enough and balanced to get a good nose ride. The rocker, foil, and rails were just as crucial. Enough continues deck curve with a slight lift in the nose. This helps to surf dumpy beach break yet still glide on the smallest mushy days. The board is very foiled out to give it a sleek and responsive feel. The foiled out egg rails are thin yet full enough not to feel catchy. I've worked through many variations to final arrive at very refined ascetically pleasing functional pig. The board comes stock with the an updated fin template based of the classic Bing wood fin from the early 60s. There's always the option for a fiberglass fin or fin box as well. I hope you enjoy.
