Find ideal volume
The Shiv is our popular SD model but retooled just a bit. Following the flat deck category of board models, the Shiv has angular rails and the most rocker of any of the flat deck designs. The flat deck increases the flex of the board significantly with better sprint out of turns and snaps.
The flat deck boards are all roughly .2 inches thinner. This keeps the volume similar to boards with a crown that are the same length and width. The angular rails, along with a fairly deep concave, provides great “bite” on the turns, allowing for good acceleration and speed. The Shiv is a great all around board, high performance with a groveler feeling. It likes beach and point breaks, chest high to well overhead. Epoxy resin is a much nobler resin, used in the sailboat and aerospace industry. It is more expensive and harder to work with, taking much longer to dry and requiring a more sophisticated process to build a board. But, It has way better flex, does not get brittle and keeps the flex for as long as the board lasts. It keeps that same “brand new “ board feeling.
