Product Description

This mini simmons inspired surfboard is for anyone that wants to get out there and just have fun.

The Taco is super fast, really loose, and makes your turns smooth and silky. It’s quad fins are set close to the rear of the board and are iconic of its style and era with a modern flair. It is amazingly easy to paddle due to its super flat rocker, and excels in surf ankle to double over head high.

This by far is the most surfed board in my quiver and the board that always makes me come out of the water frothing. Most people can ride this board 5″-8″ shorter than they expect and about 10-15% more volume than your regular shortboard .

OUTLINE: The Taco is a super short , fat, round piece of foam with a straighter mid section and a little curve in the wide tail to give you speed through every section of the wave.

ROCKER: With emphasis on being a small wave catching machine, the Taco has a flat rocker with a flat panel through the mid section, which makes this board paddle with ease and flow through those dead sections with minimal effort. A slight lift in the nose makes those late take offs easier, while the slight lift in the tail makes for a nice zingy speedy feel through your turns.

CONTOURS: Subtle yet effective, the slight flat entry rocker will make for easy wave entry . Its flatter midsection creates speed and trim through those flat fat sections of the wave and single concave at the back section makes for ease of rail to rail transitions and add to the mega speed .

Deck Layup 2 x 4oz Fiberglass Cloth

Bottom Layup 1 x 4ox cloth 1 x 4oz Fin Patch

Performance Fun Fun Fun it is: paddles amazing, flies across any section with a bunch of speed and will turn wherever you want it to go. From flat to double overhead your not going to do the biggest tour turn of your life but this is one of the funnest boards you can have in your quiver and will give you a smile from ear to ear every time you go surfing. Enjoy! Don’t forget ride this board 5-8″ shorter and 10-15% more volume than your shortboard.

NB: Fins are not supplied with this board.

    Picked one these up a few months back to surf it at a particular spot that I don’t often surf due to it being pretty average but its also reliable I guess. the first time I surfed it was in a small peaky beach break and was totally sold on the board. I left it for a while and pulled it out the other day for a surf on a local small reef break which runs nicely on the right wave and this thing just flew. I was really impressed and surprised at the amount of speed it generated and its turning ability given the size of the wave surfed. I’m quite a big bloke (100kgs) and I ride the 5’10 and it has ample float at 42 litres. I would fully recommend this to anyone who’s looking for board that makes surfing small,spilling over and flat waves fun again. The only negative I would have about this board is the glass job seems a little light on and dents pretty easily but look past that and you have a super fun board overall.
