CROWD KILLER C4
The Crowd Killer is a high performance, #hyperfunboard, based off of the Quiver Killer rocker and outline. The idea was to extend it lengthwise and open up this design to a wider audience. It’s a wave catching, easy riding machine that does not skimp on performance. The Crowd Killer features: • A slightly wider, wave catching nose, with a “no pearl” flip tip, allowing the added length to still fit into the curve of waves. • A wicked little double bump swallow tail, which feels lively and playful in small surf, yet holds long lines in larger waves. • A relaxed and fast central rocker, that glides with ease. • Plenty of tail rocker, with deep double concave, for whipping wraps like a pro. • New “Hidden Volume” two stage deck line, which focuses the foam toward the stringer and a rapid taper towards the rails. This creates a flat, stable deck, without feeling full or bulbous, and allows sensitive yet forgiving rails. • Own the local spot, or piss off locals when you travel with this Crowd Killing machine.
C4 After more than two years of development and testing, we are proud to announce the launch of C4 composite construction. The continuing evolution of integrating all natural, fully renewable and sustainable Cork, into a durable and lightweight, high-performance custom surfboard construction. Developed with Drew Baggett, C4 is built by wrapping a 1.5lb EPS foam core with full deck 1.5mm Cork. The Cork deck serves as a performance enhancing dampener, and also dramatically increases strength. By layering glass both between the Cork and the EPS core, as well wrapping over the cork and around the rails, we create a “sandwich” with incredible impact and impressive tensile strength and durability, while remaining light weight. Cork is a natural dampener which smooths out the ride of an EPS surfboard. Cork settles down vibrations and chatter, so prevalent in most EPS surfboards. Its spreads, and smooths out surface chatter, to provide a soothing glide. The Cork deck is like a suspension system on windy days, and in larger surf and variable conditions, which so commonly create chaos and unpredictable performance in “epoxy” or EPS surfboards. The bottom is built layering multiple layers of 4oz fiberglass, the final layer being a wrap of “D” Glass. Both the top and bottom feature fused carbon fiber, exo-skeletal stringers. The Fused Carbon adds strength, and provides pop, bringing a responsive, rapid spring back to the flex. C4 boards are designed to withstand a barrage of typical daily damage, while remaining light, lively and energetic under foot, and providing long lasting, durable and high-performance fun.
