Infinity 5F: Increase your wave-count with this fast, loose, versatile board that’s easy to paddle.
Pier Pony: The preferred board of Brett Simpson for flicking and sticking little airs in HB slop.


Firewire Potatonator: Full rails and wide hybridtail give a shortboard feel, w/ longboard stability
SUPERbrand The Craft II: Launch like Dion with this experimental progressive template

Timmy Reyes breaks down the Potatonator’s versatility…


T.Patterson The Pill:  Throw down aggressive speed turns on this stylish wave catching machine.
Lost Whiplash: The unofficial board of Lower Trestles, the whiplash is pure progression.

Rusty Big Cat: Sit out the back, and roll into some bombs with this “big guy friendly” Rusty shape.
FireWire Alternator: Rounded pin power gives you the drive to surf overhead waves like it’s 2-4ft.
