Behind the scenes of a new Degree33 shape.

He's a super quick peek of Bill shaping a new board for us. If we like this one we may introduce it in the fall. We are looking to make an improvement to our surfboard line up and this one we are hoping fits the one-stick-quiver theory. You know, if you could only have one board and you wanted it to surf any condition... Could make a great travel board. We'll see... it heads to the glass shop tomorrow. We'll keep ya posted. Oh yeah, you can tell by the videos that we are filming the build of this one. Can't wait to see the video when they are done.

When will the new board be out. Should I wait to buy till it is out?..Don,t want to miss out on your 4 payment deal. Do not have tons of money and just retired from fire dept. So ready to have some adventures but gotta be very choosy in everything I buy.
Thanx,

I bought my first surfboard when I was 10 years old, it was 8’ 6’ home made had a concave nose everyone laught at it but when they rode it they loved it. about ten years later David Noayva came out with the nose rider, the same shaped board. I paid $12.00 for mine. then I bought your fun board and it is fun just about like my first board but alot lighter. I love this board.

Luke, I like the video. Are you shaping something like the Firewire Sweet Potato? If you are, put me down for one.

Thanks,
Kurt

I’m kind of like Carl. What I’d like to see is are more boards shaped for an older surfer. I’m talking something in the 8’6" to 9’6" range, good floater and easy paddler but shaped more like a short board, not the long roundnosed style board. Yea, I’m 57 and about 250lbs, not the nible kid I was but still love surfing. The closest board that comes to this is the Clydsdale. I’d just like more choices. And oh by the way, I’m in Texas, so we don’t have the better waves like SoCal so it would have to be able to catch Texas waves. I got my first board in 1969, went from learning on long boards to a 5’6" twin fin but never was really a long boarder. Once I got a little better, I went to a shorter board and different style surfing. The best surf for me was west coast of Mexico, would go to San Blas a couple times a year.
Thanks

I surf the 9 6 ultimate which is just a great board. I am really excited about the pipeline of the company and the uv2! I think it might be time for a new graphic for the boards. Cheers and I agree that a similar idea to the FireWire is a good direction

Fin Guide: How they work and which is the best for you

The fin is the most foundational element of your surfboard. Unless you are riding a finless board, the entire surfboard is shaped to work with the fin; design elements like concave and rocker mean little without a fin, and one couldn't imagine a fish without a twin or quad, or a high performance shortboard with a single fin.

How to Barrel Ride

The tube ride is the pinnacle of surfing. It is, and forever will be, the best sensation a surfer can experience. This being said, tube rides are also very difficult to find, and they require a great level of wave knowledge and technique. This blog will focus on frontside barrel riding, and will touch on how to find a tube, and how to get tubed once you find one.
