RIDE THIS BOARD IF…

You want an all-round high-performance shortboard that has smooth, easy rail-to-rail turns, and you can push as hard as you like.

UNDER THE HOOD…

It has a entry rocker that runs back way past the centre to allow easier vertical surfing. Low rounder rails for easy carving. Single concave all the way through the board for that drive and speeds. Outline is adjusted in the tail to help with pop and release. It is a new model that is completely different to my other performance models. Been a big favourite with team riders. maintaining control in larger conditions.

SHELDON’S CONCLUSION…

The Clearwater PU was the archetypal all-round shortboard. Defined by a smooth, conservative outline and an interesting vee-single-vee bottom contour, the board rode with minimal hitches or idiosyncrasies. In many ways it was comparable to my typical shortboard. It was reliable in an array of conditions with a special proclivity for quality surf. I found that the board rolled over onto rail easily which made for smooth transitional surfing and an effortless ability to carve and swoop. Notwithstanding, its ability in the pocket was equally as sound. The board also featured Shapers Australia’s ‘Exotek PU’ construction: a technology that balances both strength and lightness. Anecdotally, this technology made for a much lighter PU than I am typically used to. After multiple uses the deck seemed to hold up well too. For me, this board is the ultimate surf trip sled. It’s reliable all-round and responds well to being pushed hard in quality waves. Get your hands on one of these if you’ve got a surf trip in mind or even for the better days around home when a standard, shorter, fatter board doesn’t quite cut it.
