Innovation in Shaping Surfboards Since 1985

STAB HIGH JAPAN - Featuring Letty Mortensen and Jacob "Zeke" Szekely



"Stab High is an atypical surf contest "mostly in the air" that celebrates the many different arts of flight. Rather than having competitors connect relatively similar directional changes for a score, they'll have to put all their chips on the table. This game is all about single maneuvers in the air. In 2024, Stab High will take place at Perfect Swell Shizunami, Japan, on June 22 & 23 (June 21 & 22 in USA). This year, we’re excited to announce three divisions: Pro, Ladybirds (15-and-under girls), and Bottle Rockets (15-and-under boys). Additionally, the Monster Air award will be up for grabs without limitation to any division! They'll all face the Perfect Swell Shizunami's "High Ball" air section and have several chances to land their best airs. By our estimations, we'll see 48 personalities expressed in the form of different grabs, rotations, altitudes, attitudes, and styles." Read more from Stab.

Team riders Letty Mortensen and Jacob "Zeke" Szekely will be sending it on their Rusty's. Jacob's and Letty's favorite models right now are the Underdog and What?.
