The 44-model came about when I cracked the nod for the Stab Mag “Stab in the Dark” surfboard campaign. The volume was set at 32 liters, so I decided to go for a versatile outline, focusing on performance and power surfing. I wanted to create something forgiving, with a little more lift in both the nose and tail areas, but still sticking to a basic design and keeping it simple. LESS IS MORE! I stuck with a consistent volume distribution, but thinning out in the tail, so it would respond quickly.  I really put my emphasis on getting the rails to perform well, and to be more responsive and forgiving, eliminating catching or bogging.  I have given it a little softer curve on the tuck under the rail-line. This allows you to accelerate better in and out of turns. As Jordy says: "My dad always told me, keep the bottom-edge a bit extended, not so pinched! So, you can push harder off the bottom!" Another aspect I focused on was keeping the concave deepest between the feet, as this area is where surfers apply the most pressure. The concave also flattens the bottom apex curve a bit, giving us an even concave-distribution fanning out towards the tail. I have also allowed for the option of a double concave to be shaped in on specific request, as this helps to reduce drag in choppy conditions, giving more control. This is a board for the power surfer who likes to accelerate hard off the rail, be it at the bottom of the wave or off the top. In short, I just wanted to put speed, power and flow under your feet! I think I have succeed from the feedback I am getting from all those who have surfed the 44.
