This board is all about speed! This board was inspired by boards built by one of the best big wave riders on the planet. He charged huge surf all over the world and he ruled the Banzai Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu Hawaii. These waves require skills, courage, and the right equipment.
This board has soft 50/50 rails that get a little harder at the tail. The bottom is flat for speed and the narrow tail reduces drag to a minimum.
We air brushed our board with subtle "ghost flames" on the deck. If you like the look and want to duplicate it on your own board email us and we'll send the PDF file that will print a full size picture of the flames. Tape up the pages and cut out your own stencil.
These templates are to be used in conjunction with the Hollow Wood Surfboard Manual available on this site. They are only available to people who have purchased the manual and are not sold independently.
