I am sure you can find similar shapes in OZ.

The freak is a modern longboard shape: a longboard planshape with modern rails and rocker to allow carving turns, as opposed to the stall-and-pivot turns of retro boards. It is also designed for easy handling in turns, in that it lifts naturally the nose when turning, keeping things smooth and all options open, whereas a shape like the Zero would project the nose into the turn for max acceleration but will need more commitment.

I think a lot of quality brands available in OZ have something similar in their lines, especially now that "10 feet and over" movement have put these boards in the spotlight. Although, yes, the Freak is based on the famous "NFA" shape that Patrice Guenole has been honing for more than a decade.
