55 YEARS LATER

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.

  1. A board that someone could downsize a bit from their current length; maybe two to four inches without losing wave catching abilities.
  2. A board that would turn easily.
  3. 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….
