"AN ALL NEW, UPDATED TWIST TO OUR ALL-TIME BEST SELLING AUSTRALIAN HIGH PERFORMANCE SHORT BOARD"-MATT BIOLOS
After "retiring" Taj spent the last couple of years free from the constraints of judged contest surfing.
A free mind is a creative mind and Taj took this time to expand his mind and experiment with developing new ideas for his trademark brand of performance surfing.
The result is this. The Beach Buggy-2. An all new updated twist to our all time best selling Australian HP-Shortboard.The Beach Buggy-2 features updated curves in nearly all aspects of the design:
-Relaxed central rocker, with forgiving catch free nose lift.
-A wider nose and tail block
-Refined single and double concaves
-Fuller, more forgiving rails,with a defined thin and boxy tail
-Re-envisioned thickness flow, with added thickness up front.
-Taj's signature (generous) tail rocker and exaggerated hip squash remain.
Ease of speed with tack sharp reactive turning is what Taj and the Beach Buggy-2 is all about.
-Fast, precise and drivey
-Suited to all surfers
The Puddle Jumper HP is a souped up, slimmed down, refined Puddle Jumper. It features a pulled in nose with the wide point brought back, and a narrower, pulled in tail block. The new outline enables the PJHP to surf even more like a normal board. A very playful board that’s easy to paddle and ride yet still allows more radical and quick turns than all the other PJ models. It’s easy on the eyes, sleek and re ned under the arm, and its smooth foiled lines deceptively hide its significant volume – with built-in speed to spare.
Stand on the tail of this thing and simply go to town, up and down, round and round, like you have a motor in small surf.
The tail, with its foiled rails and deep vee, holds in and give confidence at high speeds. The overall flat rocker, generous width, and deep central concave generate small wave squirt like you would expect from a Puddle jumper.
The Puddle Jumper HP can take the domesticated gentleman into a realm thought long gone. Speed, with quickness, fast but loose, precise but playful. If you are one of the thousands of surfers who have enjoyed one of the Puddle Jumper series, the PJHP allows you to take your small wave surfing to the next level.
