Displacement hull boards

Post by contorx » Mon Apr 26, 2010 11:14 pm

Hey everyone,

Name's conor. Im from victoria, surf mainly the east coast, and ride all types of boards, favoring longboards alot of the time. So theres my intro... now a question..

do any of you guys ride displacement hull single fins? if so, who shaped it, what kind of surf do you usually use it in, how does it go..? etc.

Im pretty keen on getting one.

cheers conor

Gday mate

I ride them, not much though. You need 1-4 feet walls, not to hollow and not to fat.

Very perculiar feeling, not for everyone. you can slash, but mostly it requires doing nothing but riding high, low and tight in the pocket. If you don't like that you will hate hulls

Sea Biscuit 6'9" and been riding a 6'9" Vouch.

Also a 6'9" Dale S deck- Australian hull from 1969

I always wanted to try a hull but was told they really only suit point breaks?

Thanks for the replies guys. I very briefly tried one around 7'2 last year at cape conran, it was fun, but I didnt really surf it enough to get a real feel of it. Felt quite glidey though. The surf also was a little big for the board.

Matt Keane has just done 2 for Beachbeat at Alexandra Headland on the Sunshine coast.
One's a stubbie- 6'2" X 22" X 2&1/2"
The other is a 6'10" X 21 (something) X 2 &5/8" (if memory serves).
Both have the single boxes but have side bite FCS plugs as well.
Veru much in the Sea Biscuit style.
The price is only $695 I think for the stubbie and $795 for the 6'10" so not prohibitive to give them a go.
The Sea Biscuit will be over a grand.

Thanks for that cuttlefish, that seems like a pretty good price. Ive seen a couple of Matt Keanes boards and they looked like they were shaped really well.

Huie that board looks sick. did you shape it for yourself or for a customer?

Give Woodsy a call and twist his arm to take some photos to email to you.
Me, I'm more into my overvolumed Dick Van carbon fibre all rounders. Reckon I'd drown on a thin hull. :)

Not sure what you meen by "displacement hull".But if you meen a rolled bottom with nose concave and 50/50 rails check out Jordi Brown's High Tide boards,I got a 9'8" last year and am verry happy with every thing about it.Not realy ment for waves over 3' though. :|
