THE INSIDE SCOOP:


The Trawler designed purely for small wave pleasure, it is the second installment of our ‘summer series’ designed too help maximize your surf time this summer in the smallest most gutless surf that comes your way, but still pretty fun when the surf turns on a bit.
featuring a 70’s inspired ‘double ender’ outline, the wide round nose and wide round tail are for maximum surface area for faster planing, which combined with a flatter rocker makes things fast which makes slack slow surf heaps more exciting.  on the bottom we have a slightly more complex belly, vee and vee double running the entire length of the trawler, this vee bottom helps the wide board transition rail to rail with ease whilst still providing some water flow through the fins with the double. i’ve kept the rails more in the semi-full range for maximum flotation but pinched a touch more in the rear 1/2 for a little added sensitivity.
don’t be fooled by the wide and flat feel, it will still go vertical when surfed off the back foot. best surfed as a quad with controller/speed dialer style fins but comes as a 5-fin for some experimentation.

TRAWLER –
‘Recreational trawlers are pleasure boats which resemble fishing trawlers, they can also be called cruising trawlers or trawler yachts’

The Trawler is more of a ‘recreational trawler’ its designed purely for small wave pleasure, it is the second installment of our ‘summer series’ designed too help maximize your surf time this summer in the smallest most gutless surf that comes your way.

Size wise, we recommend surfing the trawler considerably shorter than your regular board (6-8″ shorter) much wider (nearly 2″ wider), volume wise you want 1/2 – 1L more than your regular board.
