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.
9’1 Creative Army Five Sugars PU – FCS II – 2 + 1 – Clear Double Stringer FACTORY SECOND
The Five Sugars, is one of the most versatile surfboards we have created, its modern rocker and higher volume makes paddling and wave catching a dream.
It has a 2+1 fin set up, and the slightly rolled Vee bottom through the back half makes for smooth flowing rail to rail transitions. A flatter mid-section makes for fast trimming, while the concave in the front half comes into play with long extended nose rides in all sections of the wave!
Maybe you are a short boarder that wants that board for smaller days, but doesn’t want a beast and still wants the ability to roll off the top and have plenty of speed. Or perhaps you are a long boarder that wants a board to nose ride and to turn with plenty of speed in those waves that aren’t your perfect point set up. Then this is the board for you.

OUTLINE: This smooth and balanced outline has a slightly pulled in tail for drive and acceleration in turns and its fuller voluptuous nose helps with extended nose riding in all sections of the wave.
ROCKER: With emphasis on being an all-rounder the Five Sugars has a medium rocker with a flat panel through the mid-section which makes this board paddle with ease and flows through those dead sections with minimal effort. A slight lift in the nose makes those late take offs easier and also helps with amazing nose riding, while the slight lift in the tail makes for nice drive and smooth tight arcs through your turns.
CONTOURS: Subtle yet effective, the longer deeper concave in the nose creates lift while hanging those toes over. Its flatter midsection creates speed and trim and the slightly rolled vee through the back half makes for ease of rail to rail transitions.

CONSTRUCTION: Polyester or PU construction uses traditional materials and laminating techniques to produce a strong, reliable surfboard with high quality finishes. All polyester boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand using quality components such as Hexcel fiberglass, Silmar resin and Bennett foam. For years traditional polyester boards have been at the forefront of performance surfing. These boards feature a progressive flex pattern controlled by a high-grade timber stringer and feel very reliable under your feet. Polyester construction will perform in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.
