New Meyerhoffer Comp 9'1 in action @ Surfers Point Barbados
Evolution? Revolution? Future surfing solution? The Meyerhoffer is possibly the most radical design innovation in longboarding for a generation.
Maverick designer, Thomas Meyerhoffer, is renowned for his innovative product designs including the Apple eMate - the innovative predecessor of the famous Apple computer designs of the late 1990's.
His quest was to merge industrial design processes with his passion for surfing. Using the natural world as an inspiration, "the resulting shape is organic and fluid which seems to fit the wave better. Instead of surfing the wave, the wave surfs you. The board integrates with the wave seamlessly. You become one with the wave."
The purpose? "The three main sequences of longboarding - turn, glide and nose riding - are pushed to a higher level. The shape with its different sections has been designed to give you something unique. The total experience is a board that is faster, turns better and delivers a higher level of surf experience".
All boards are constructed in SLX to ensure maximum responsiveness. We have glassed all boards with white tinted epoxy resin. They have 2 x 6oz on deck and 1 x 4oz bottom with a 6oz patch on the fin area. We give the boards the gloss polish finish and they come standard 6" or 8" Centre fin and FCS side fins.
NB: The design of this board is registered under patent No. 326628 in Australia and patent No.29/329,451 in the USA. Design patent in other countries is pending.
