The Shiv is our popular SD model but retooled just a bit. Following the flat deck category of board models, the Shiv has angular rails and the most rocker of any of the flat deck designs. The flat deck increases the flex of the board significantly with better sprint out of turns and snaps.
The flat deck boards are all roughly .2 inches thinner. This keeps the volume similar to boards with a crown that are the same length and width. The angular rails, along with a fairly deep concave, provides great “bite” on the turns, allowing for good acceleration and speed. The Shiv is a great all around board, high performance with a groveler feeling. It likes beach and point breaks, chest high to well overhead.
Turnaround time on boards is going to range anywhere from 2-4 weeks once we start shaping depending on the construction of the board. Estimated turnaround times are as follows:
- Poly (PU) - 2 weeks
- Epoxy / Epoly - 3 weeks
- Torsion Spring - 4 weeks

Got this board in Torsion Spring with a round tail. It's one of the best daily driver short boards I've ever ridden in my 25ish years of surfing. Paddles and catches waves very well, plenty of drive and slices up a pocket or an open face. Rarely bogs or catches rail unless I'm really blowing it. Balanced feeling rocker with a large sweet spot. The low end is impressive, even with the round tail. The flat deck is a trip when fondling the board feels pretty normal and intuitive in the water. I usually ride 2.5" thick and I went 2.22" thick for the Shiv. This is my second Torsion Spring and I'm a big fan. Light and lively without the chatter of EPS. Rusty, Clint and the rest of the crew run a tight ship. Thanks guys!
