FACTORY SECOND: This board is part of a limited collection of Factory Second surfboards. These boards function as intended but have a touch more personality. This personality comes in the form of imperfections in the handwork that is involved in making these surfboards. For example, the colour is not perfect, the logo is in the wrong position or there is a minor fault in the finish. In return, you get a great deal on the price. If you can live with these imperfections, these deals are definitely for you! You can read more about these boards here.
5’8 Salt Gypsy ShoreBird PU – FCS II – 2 Fin – Dirty Pink Tint FACTORY SECOND
In the true essence of the twin fin, the Shorebird will feel fast, loose and have lots of forward drive. The twin is a great option because the absence of the centre fin reduces drag considerably, and it’s therefore easier to generate down-the-line speed. The pivoting capabilities of the twin will also make for smooth, effortless turning in small to medium size waves.
From a design perspective the Shorebird lends from the old-school keel twin with a relaxed yet fast rocker, and a vee-to-single concave bottom that will instil trust in the rider when she takes off and starts to drive off the bottom. The traditional beak nose positions additional volume under the chest for easy wave catching. The modern elements include a narrower tail which allows for a tighter
turn and assists with getting the board on rail for those surfers really leaning into their turns.
This is a board that will actually satisfy a wide range of abilities and surf conditions from beach breaks to point waves and reefs. Essentially, it targets surfers who have some experience riding waves who want a ‘short’ surfboard with performance, flow and good vibes all rolled into one board.
