BLACK FRIDAY TOUR BOARD PREVIEW - TIMMY PATTERSON
With Black Friday fast approaching we’re going to take a look at some more boards that are going to feature in the sale. Here’s a few performance shapes by legendary shaper Timmy Patterson. Another shaper who I often think is overlooked in the U.K. for some reason, I’m not sure why as he’s shaped boards for world champions for the last 20 years as well as having an amazing team which includes Italo Ferreira. Here’s a few boards that we have in the sale and will be a great addition to a quiver for the coming months with more powerful swells ahead.
1. The XXX
This board looks like great fun. Non fancy gimmick weird shape just a good standard shortboard, something that is forgotten about these days. With the winter approaching it’s going to be time to ditch the groveller and get on something that’s going to perform well when the waves have a lot of punch. One of the boards in store “5’11 x 19 1/8 x 2 5/16” is a board you know is going to be performing at home and away in most conditions.
This is what Timmy says about the XXX
“The XXX model is the team favorite, tested in all conditions by a wide range of the top surfers from around the globe. This board is for the guy who just wants a normal go to day-to-day board they can depend on. This design is shaped with a single concave from the nose to the tail for generating speed. We put a medium low rail to give you more control rail to rail. The volume in the middle of the board will give you plenty of paddle power but we also pulled in the nose and tail to give you maximum flow in and out of your turns. The XXX has a medium entry rocker and a solid flip in the tail rocker that allows for tighter surfing in the pocket. This board comes in a squash tail and works best as a tri fin”
IF-15 (Italo Ferreira)
another great shortboard design, just look at the Surfing that Italo is doing on this thing on the tour. Carves, airs and barrels, this board is designed for it all. The wider nose and tail outline is going to help you out when the waves are not pumping but it is definitely a high performance board designed for good waves, which we should be expecting over the coming winter months or if your going somewhere exotic.
one we have in store is “5’11 x 18 3/8 x 2 1/4”
Timmy has this to say
“The IF-15 model is a high performance model developed for the WCT surfer Italo Ferreira.
Shaped with a well-balanced outline that foils into a fuller wider nose creating excellent stability upon returning from extreme maneuvers. We keep a sharp edge around the curve of the tail, which allows maximum control through out any type of maneuver. This boards bottom come standard with a slight single concave. Medium rocker. Ridden best with a squash tail but also works very well with a round tail or swallow tail to accommodate waves from anywhere in the world. We can put together this board in many different sizes to accommodate any customer. The board is much more progressive with actually more volume than your normal idea of what a WCT performance shape would be. Italo is always coming out of his maneuvers with high speed through landings while rotating out because he does not waste time sinking in the middle of his landings so he is always keeping the speed and still has all the control he could possibly want. These newer performance style boards that the guys are starting to ride translate into a very user friendly board for the standard user where it used to be the other way around. The Italo model has the right amount of volume to get you into those 2-3 extra waves each session that we always seem to miss without sacrificing the performance.”
All Timmy Paterson shortboards are going to be as low as £300 on the Black Friday sale so don’t miss them.
