Kolohe’s all around small to average wave contest board is also the most popular HP short board in our line. His trademark carving style is based around this rocker, outline and rails. The SCORCHER features the same low entry rocker, forward outline and rear rail line rocker of the Stealth, but with the wide bump squash, low stringer centerline rocker and Vee out the back from the SD2. The deep Vee out the tail allows more full rail carving and drive. Kolohe has used this model to win countless national and US surfing titles, as well as his first few Pro events already. This board is already the rage amongst the custom order crew. Ride about 2″ shorter 1/8″ thinner and 1/4″ wider than an F1 or Whiplash type short board.
“I wanna board for 1′ mush. Something really short and wide, but still a short board…..something like Danes board.” –Kolohe Andino. The challenged was laid down. Starting with an old SD2: We squashed the dims to 5’5″x18.63″x 2.13″, lowered the entry rocker and shallowed the concave through the center to straighten the rail line for drive and make it easier to lay such a wide platform over on a rail. “Viola!” Our stubbiest short board yet, but it still carves like a real board. Kolohe wanted to call it “The Trashcan Lid” because you don’t need to go dumpster diving to get one of these!
