It will come as no surprise that I have chosen a 'single fin' of sorts to profile. Well known is my love of the smooth glide of a good single fin. However, as we come into summer (smaller waves, bigger crowds) I often find myself reminding people that when buying a new board, adding something bigger to your quiver can add a tonne of surfing days to your calendar. Often when we remove fins we remove the ego and get back to basics. Getting in the water and having fun! The Huevo, is a classic hybrid board that incorporates the best of both the shortboard and longboard. Its round nose and fuller tail gives plenty of floatation and makes paddling a breeze. Where its shorter length and 2 + 1 fin set up makes for fast responsive turns and manoeuvrability. Creative Army Surfboards are designed and shaped by 2006 Longboard World Champ Josh Constable. Known for his high performance and stylish surfing, Josh takes his knowledge and experience to the shapers table and puts it under your feet.

  • Sizes - 6'4" to 8'1"

  • Tail shape - round

  • Rocker -Traditional

  • Fin set up - 2+1

  • Wave size - Chest - 2x Overhead
