Surefire "Fozzy Beavertail" Noserider SUP
GET YOUR HIPSTER ON!
Fozzy wanted a board that had the flow and nose riding capabilities of the old retro "PIG" style longboards of the late 50's and early 60's.......but with a pin tail to make it surf better.
The idea of a pig style board (a board where the wide point is more toward the tail) is that when you are nose riding, the board slows down a little keeping you in the pocket so you don't outrun the wave and can spend more time on the nose.
Fozzy was very specific with this board: The 10'5" had to be 28" wide and 3.5" thick, it had to have enough rocker and nose lift not to bog or nose dive....but not too much, it had had to have a pin tail with lower rails that are slightly pinched for extra hold, it had be light and also come in at 120L
Well I can honestly say that we have nailed this model. The board surfs really well off the tail and with the lower rails can really drive into turns and cutbacks, but cross step up the nose and enjoy the ride & glide.
The Fozzy Beavertail come with a 4+1 setup for endless fin options but I personally like riding it with just a 6.5" single fin. The rails give enough bite through turns and once up the nose you can release the fin and start to spin.
The Bottom of the FBT features a nice concave through the nose softening through the middle to a slight rolled vee through the fins.
If you love old school surfing then the Fozzy Beavertail is the board for you......who knows, you might just grow a beard and start to eat Kale.
