POLLYWOG IS STOKED TO PRESENT THIS SICK SURFBOARD FROM MAYHEM!
At Pollywog we understand one very important fact when it comes to surfboards, knowledge is power! Matt Biolos is one of the global leaders in surfboard design and technology, always on the cutting edge of design and new material construction. With a global surf team of note providing constant feedback, you can be sure that your board is packed with years of research and development, to give you the maximum amount of help while surfing. This ensures hours of fun in the water and the ability to improve your surfing rather than fighting with equipment that is not right for you. Matt visits South Africa at least once a year to check in on the factory and off course surf the amazing waves we are blessed with here in South Africa. He knows and understands the various wave set ups here in South Africa which is priceless when it comes to getting you the right board.
The Weekend Warriror is the latest greatest “Domesticated” model we make. It came about after a couple months of myself riding the new V2-Shortboards. When the surf got tiny I did not want to go back to the radically different small wave boards (Like the Couch Potatos or Bottom Feeders) and have to adjust so dramatically back and forth. It seemed I needed a new twist on a small wave, pointed nose, shortboard influenced design. Hoping to make as seamless of transition as possible from the V2-Shortboard, I started with my 6’3″ 21″ 2.75″ and shortened it, then lowered the entry rocker, widened the nose a bit and widened the tail dramatically. The extreme wide tail creates a very straight outline in the rear half of the board (reminiscent our our “Tri-Fish” and other Rocket Fish of the mid 90′s), so I figured I could increase the concave for more lift in small surf, which also added significant rail rocker, thus adding a more progressive and tight wrapped turning radius off of the rear foot. For the tail shape, I was thinking swallow, but it looked old and done a million times. I first cut a diamond into to it, hoping to shorten the rail line further and allow one to stand a bit more central on the board, and then taking a cue from many of the young indy-hipster shapers, I cut a deep wedge into the stringer. This created a “Split Diamond” tail. The prototype I made myself seemed to cause some controversy. At the same time, it also gave this design a lot of instant recognition and surely brought the other shapers plenty of exposure they might not have normally received. All the elements add up to a shorter, compact and effective small wave design that is high on volume, but holds and carries itself well. It should allow us “Domesticated” dudes another option to chose from in order to ride a pointed nose weapon in small and gutless surf. It makes an incredible one/two punch as a two board quiver with the V2-Shortboard. For those turned off by the Split Diamond tail, we have already made them as swallows, diamonds and even winged Squash tails–all with similar results.
