Never heard of a Beater?
The Beater is the ultimate, all-purpose shred stick perfect for groms, geezers and anyone in between. You can surf them, skim them, ride them like a boogie board, or even tow them behind a boat. This is a necessary tool to everyone’s quiver, no matter what your skill level or riding preference!
These custom shaped, foam boards were originally created to beat the dreaded summertime black ball zones in Southern California. When summer would hit and the Southern Hemi would chun out its typical, long period south swells, many surfers were left on the shore frothing and unable to surf some of the area’s best breaks. That’s when the masterminds at Catch Surf put their heads together to produce the world’s most versatile and shred-worthy foam board: The Beater. Now, many south swells and countless sessions later, the Catch Surf crew and team riders have perfected their most durable and high-performance boards yet with the new 2012 models.
2012 Beaters: Best Beaters Yet!
A big update to the 2012 Beaters is the inner maple-ply, dual stringer system. This ingenious design gives the boards an unmatched level of stiffness for greater durability and added performance.
Here Beater madman Johnny Redmond highlights both advantages of the enhanced stringer system in the new 2012 boards.
Twin Fin Model: New to the Lineup
Now the beater is available in a twin fin option perfect surfers a little less comfortable riding a single fin and wanting a bit more hold than a finless board. With the Twin Fin Model you can draw out your bottom turns and shred your local beachie like never before!
Want to upgrade your board? You can always get your self a couple of Beater Fin Kits and customize the fin set up to your liking.
