Suggested Set up for paddling bigger waves:

Length:     7′ or 1-2 feet longer than your height (for UK big waves) 2+ feet (for international big waves)
Width:      20″
Bottom Contours:   Light V entry to disperse bumps and chop, flat mid section and back to a slight V in the tail
Rocker:    Medium entry, fairly flat through the middle and low tail

Fin Setup: we recommend a Quad setup for a stronger hold and less drag in big waves however a thruster setup will feel more comfortable to those not used to quads. 5 boxes also available.

Big Wave boards will be glassed heavier to hold the nose down in bigger waves, maintain momentum and withstand stronger forces in the impact zone.




This board loves a good wave!! A narrower template through the nose and tail aids control and keeps the board stable. This combined with the pin tail leaves a board that will handle anything that’s thrown at it; gripping well and creating loads of drive.  Designed for solid surf.



All boards are hand shaped by myself (Chris Barker) to the highest standard and glassed using what i consider the best materials available on the market and finished to a matt finish.  There is no regard to time; they are a labour of love!

These boards will be shaped with 50/50 rails – for full low rails and hull designs; please check the “Love Stix range”
