The Jack and The Bean… A Movie or New Degree33 Board Shapes?

Alright everyone we are pleased to announce some new boards being released this summer. Here is a sneak peak at what to expect…

First up…Named “The Jack” because of its versatile use, this multipurpose board really is the Jack Of All Trades. Designed to function as a one board quiver, you can finally hit the beach without questioning if you are bringing the right stick for the conditions.

The Jack really does live up to its name thanks to the 5-fin option we gave it. By being able to choose between a fast and loose quad setup, or highly maneuverable thruster, you will now have ultimate control of the performance you want .

We also gave it a double barrel concave at the tail allowing for a greater amount of maneuverability while maintaining drive and speed. Paired with a swallow tail and double wing this board really does have it all whether you are surfing 2-3 foot slop or clean overhead waves.

For those looking to get a funboard or transition board you will want to take a look at the 6’8, 7’0, or 7’6 as your starting sizes. These will provide the stability, float, and paddle ability needed when stepping down from a longboard.

For the intermediate to advanced level surfer looking for a high performance hybrid, the 6’0, 6’4 and 6’8 will be the range you want to start looking.

The Jack will be offered in both our EPS Epoxy finish as well as our higher performance NexGen. Sizes are as listed.

7'6" x 21 1/2" x 2 7/8"

7' x 21 1/4x 2 3/4

6’8” x 21 1/4x 2 3/4

6'4" x 20 1/2" x 2 3/4"

6'0" x 20" x 2 5/8"

 

Next up is a board that breaks the mold when it comes to traditional design…

Simply titled, “The Bean”, it’s short, it’s thick, and it’s fast! We went back to the drawing board with this one and created a small wave board that is a blast to ride.

Humbly named thanks to its shape, The Bean is the perfect board for the surfer looking to get the most out of those mushy days when a standard shortboard just doesn’t cut it. With its quad-fin set up and low rocker, The Bean flies down the line making less than perfect waves something to celebrate.

Don’t let its shape fool you though, even with its wide nose and massive volume it still turns like a champ! Thanks to a deep double concave running down the tail of the board, rail to rail transitions and deep cut backs are still a breeze.

Since the board is going to be ridden at a much shorter length than what you are used to, we gave it a fat round tail with a double wing to provide extra hold. This board really is all about catching as many waves as possible with maximum style.

Trust us, when the surf looks disappointing, you won’t be.

The Bean should be ridden at least 4-8 inches shorter than your regular shortboard. Available only in NexGen the size range will be:

5'6" x 21 1/4" x 2 3/4"

5'10" x 21 1/4 x 2 3/4"

6'2" x 21 1/2" x 2 7/8" 

Pre-Order any of these boards now! Just call us for more details about how to do so at 858-693-3692. Cheers, -D33 Team

the bean is definitely a step in the right direction. the more like a mini-simm the better.

Finally some modern shapes. I’m definitely getting a bean, but I’d have to sell mt flyin’ fish first.
I also noticed that these shapes are similar to some Rusty shapes. This is a wonderful thing. Now we can get some proven designs for half the price, and made as nextgen, will last twice as long!

How will the Bean float one of us bigger guys? I’m not great at math, can you put up the foam volume? Also, I rode a homemade similar to the Bean a few years ago in HI, but it had a double convex rocker on the underside (sort of like a Kon Tiki Proa boat) have you guys modeled or tried a shape like that? It road very “soft” but turned well which was perfect for small (<2) waves. Some more talented guys could do a cool 360 move and even ride it backward at the pull out.. like what you would do on a skimboard… Mahalo.

Can the bean be shaped some where in between 5’10 and a 5’6 , like a 5’8 or 9?

It depends on what you are used to riding and the level of float and paddle that has provided. I think the biggest size in either should accommodate your size depending.

No the NexGen Jack will be stringerless.

Well it depends on how “bigger” we are talking. :) I think the 6’2" Bean should be able to handle up to 210-215. That’s assuming that you are used to riding like a 6’8" shortboard.

Luc -
I’m an older guy that’s 6’-2" and 215#. What size in either a Jack or a Bean would you suggest? ( I’m pretty sure it’ll have to be a custom…)
Thanks,
Peter

Will The Jack have a stringer if it’s made with NexGen Epoxy?

The rocker is very similar to the TP. Volume is a tricky thing. Unless you get your board digitally scanned, or they are shaped by a machine, volume is nearly impossible to calculate without an engineering degree. :) You’re not the only one to request it though so we will see what we can come up with.

Does the Jack have aggressive rocker like the turning point? I really like to go by volume when buying.When will you start listing volume on your boards?
Thanks ~A

Not for the Bean but on the Jack yeah. We can do custom color on any of them but an additional charge.
