It's every surfers dilemma, particularly when the waves are small or weak: you want to get in the water, you want to catch waves, you need the board to help you generate speed BUT you still want to be able to lay it on a rail and throw a little spray.The trend for super fat shortboards has created a lot of fun shapes for surfers of all levels, but unless you're a WCT contender their fat tails can be hard to control properly rail to rail once you do get the board moving. The Maluku Flying Frog solves this problem by creating something of cut and shut; The front end is similar to a traditional egg or even minimal, but the tail is all rounded pin shortboard. You paddle in early and easy on that reassuring front end foam, pump through on your front foot on that wide, stable middle section and when you're ready weight the back foot and put the board on rail exactly as you would with a shortboard - the rounded pin tail gives control through the turn in gutless waves or hold AND control in larger surf. As a result the board lends itself perfectly to the surfer starting out and looking for an easy route to a decent shortboard surfing style, perhaps before stepping down to a proper shortboard - or the shortboarder looking to keep their rail work tight on days without enough grunt for their standard stick. Enjoy the glide and smooth style of a single fin, add side bites for a bit more drive or ditch the centre fin and opt for the speed and hold on rail of a quad setup.

Super Sap

Our Super Sap line of epoxy resin products cover a wide range of applications and manufacturing processes. Whether you are a large manufacturer or a do-it-yourselfer, we have a system that’s right for you. From high performance composites to green building materials, Super Sap is the answer!

Make things better 

Reduce your carbon footprint. By employing green chemistry techniques that require less energy and produce less harmful byproducts, we reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from production of our resins by 50% over conventional petroleum based epoxies. Using today's modern Life Cycle Analysis techniques we can demonstrate how our resins can help your products reduce their environmental impact.

Sustainability by shared bio mass pipeline

Not all carbon is created equal. We replace petroleum based carbon with renewable plant-based carbon. The raw materials going into our resins are co-products or waste products of other industrially important processes. These materials do not compete with food sources or displace food-based agriculture. Using an international standard method of radio carbon dating, we verify the renewable content of the resins so you know exactly where they come from.

Great Board. Much lighter than other boards of similar size. Will go for any kind of wave below 7 feet. Really enjoying it.

Bought one of these the other week as a step down from a longboard for use on the southcoast and for steeper N coast days. Went for the epoxy version for a bit of durability and really thought of getting it as my fun mess about board that I'm not going to cry so much if i ding it badly. Love the fact its a sustainable surf legit board and also with a bit of digging found out it is a total southwest made board so even more a bonus. I've had 3/4 sessions so far. I've tested it in ultra clean ankle snappers to some shoulder high south coast stuff. First impression are this board is awesome. Its super easy takeoff actually easier than my 9'5 firewire submoon due to its low rocker. It feels bomb proof (I don't mind epoxy as kitesurf and sup as well so used to PU boards as well as epoxy). I've ridden it with an 8" fcs2 flow single fin and also as a quad with the HI quads. Liking it as a quad so far as ridden mostly Southcoast and not had the face to really enjoy single fin riding but both seem great. I actually love the board more than i thought and will use it on good days when not logging. It looks really nice, feels solid and trims and glides well - even got a few cheeky 5's on it.

I bought the 6’4 though I havent ridden that short board before (more like a 7’2-7’6). It has however been easy to catch waves with this, due to having volume in the front. Be aware though that even though its possible to duckdive with this, its quite tricky.

i did not try my new board so far, but as i rode the polyester model the last 3 years surfing in indonesia, canaries and all over europe at total pleasure... what more can you say than ordering the exact model again.
