55 YEARS LATER…
Now, an interesting development at Harbour Surfboards has occurred. Rich has been designing the quintessential 55th anniversary model with several features that he deemed were a must.
- A board that someone could downsize a bit from their current length; maybe two to four inches without losing wave catching abilities.
- A board that would turn easily.
- It needed nose riding capabilities.
“So I began by shifting the thickness to the rear a tad, and also moved the wide point rearward. The 50/50 nose rail with a hard tail rail seemed very appropriate. The design has significant curve in the last foot of tail which measures 17 3/16 with a nose of 17 ½. It is a wide board that measures 23 1/4 on a 9-6.”
This board has definite Pig Shape undertones. But I have gained a lifetime of surfboard design knowledge since those early days. May we introduce to you, The Evolver….
