Doofer | FCS 2 | Thruster
The ultimate all rounder.
The Doofer is anything you want it to be. From mush to solid waves it is the ultimate all-rounder when you want to catch as many waves as possible and have a bunch of fun. We have tested this board at one foot Fistral all the way to 6ft Thurso and it really is a one board quiver! A great paddler, fast, easy to turn and holds a lovely line in the barrel. It’s one of our favorite boards to take away.
The Doofer came about from the boys asking me if they could get a board that will be a bit of everything for when they travel. It is essentially a hybrid board. The outline is that of a Stoker nose and a shortboard back end pulled into a round pin. The wide point is pushed right up the board to increase the rail line which gives you the feel of a shortboard when you have your back foot on the tail pad, and the nose is nice and wide which is great for paddling into waves easily. The rocker is fairly unique on the Doofer, it has a medium tail kick which is fairly curvy, into a drawn out entry rocker; providing you with the best of both worlds when it comes to hold, pocket surfing and speed. The deck is packed full of volume and the rails are similar to that of the Mad Fresh. Due to the extra volume and the higher wide point you can ride the Doofer fairly short without feeling under-gunned when the waves get a bit of size, so the balance of using it in smaller and bigger waves alike really helps it to be a versatile board. The concave is that of a Charge model from the tail to the wide point with a single running slightly deeper through the nose, helping it with paddling and lift in the water when you need to maintain your speed on the smaller waves but really gives it some hold when you are surfing off of the tailpad in bigger waves.
