Check this out for progressive SUP construction:








906 hand shaped by Simon Anderson - done in Hayden's factory in Mona Vale.

Currently being ridden by Tommy Carroll - see if the Walk ON Water guys'll get that back!!

Disc: the WOW guys are mates of mine.

Matt, what happened to the topic on this posted earlier today, looks like it got deleted??

Nice looking board, so what's the construction?

Didn't the earlier post say it was 135 litres. TC would only need about 105 I would have thought.

Dunno-I'm just pimping it in the hope I get one on the cheap

Tom's just having a ride-not made for him-despite what he might think

I like it, but if i had a choice and could get away with it i would have 9x30x4

I have had thoughts of a custom DC but no reply and from memory i think they are built rather light, a little light for long term use for what i want i guess

Being a custom you can have them built any weight you want.

Walk on water are doing some awesome boards. Really liked the look of Simon's 11 x 30,it will be out in production soon.

With a bit of luck my knee will work then

Finally - somebody's doing a high quality EPS/Epoxy construction on a SUP.

I spoke to the guys at Firewire a while ago and they have no interest in pursuing the SUP market. Hayden's FibreFlex technology is awesome and produces as good an end product as a Firewire. Good on Simon and Hayden for getting the ball rolling on this.

It looks good - but I fail to see the progression, oh wait there's carbon on the rail, yawn.

The FF technology is an Australian Innovation, has been well accepted in the short board world and is now being exported to USA and Europe. Stand Up Surfboard design is also progressing very quickly and after discussing the merits of FF with Hayden we concluded it would suit our higher performance SUP's. We chose to use the 906 RDP model as a tester, mainly because the EPS version surfs really well and it gives us a solid basis from which to compare the FF.

The one in the photo's is the first board we have produced this way. If it's a dog it might be the only one. .

Anyway - If you want a bit more info on the merits of FF, check out Haydens website (link below).

That 11' was the most verstile allrounder i have ever ridden. hopefully ill get to play on it again another day.
That FF looks insane. Im on a Luke short LSD 9'6 at the moment. Very similar outline to that simon and it's a great blend of long and short board elements to it. Hope TC doesnt hog it and it goes around the traps for Demos!!

There will be a limited edition production run of Simon's 11' x 30" gun (shown above) coming in soon. Same shape, plan, and specs but in a pvc-sandwich construction.

When I say "limited" I mean blink and you may miss 'em

I didn't ride that board-BUT everyone that did said it was an amazing board-had a great live feel to it and was SUPER responsive for such a large board.

I'd love an 804 FFlex board-in a blown up short board plan shape and rocker line/foil.

Gott'a start saving the cents-or maybe just work harder and play lesssssss!

Casso, if we ever get it back off TC, your welcome to take for a test drive, but there is a queue

Just shows you lack of understanding (no offence intended) of the construction and the benefits and how far away this type of construction is from the usual production methods being employed in the manufacture of SUPS.
