Innovation in Surfboards Since 1985

5'10" SD Prototype

This board is a prototype of the 5'10 version of the SD model. This specific board has tail patches.

The origins of the SD are well documented. In June 2016, we delivered a board to Stab for one of their “Shapers” series (Stab in the Dark) to be filmed in South Africa later that summer. I wasn’t sure who the Pro was. 6’0 190lbs. Maybe Jordy? But he’s a bit taller. I built a modified Yes Thanks. One of Josh Kerr’s models. #46. Puffed up the Yes Thanks, a little. Moved the thickness flow, balance point, a little forward. Fairly deep single that zeroed out under the rear fin and finished with a slight vee in the tail. Smooth curve that accelerated towards the tail. 5'10 18.75 2.25 27 Liters. The mystery surfer turned out to be Dane Reynolds. “It felt quite a bit different from the other boards I’ve been riding,” remarked Dane. “It’s got a low rocker, hard edges, and a pinched deck. I wasn’t too excited to try it because of the giant snakeskin band along the rail and this formless tail. It just doesn’t look that cool. But I was surprised. It had a lot of speed and drive. It felt like a good board. I got a couple of barrels on it but I couldn’t really do a turn.” “As it turns out Rusty wasn’t the only one experiencing a little identity confusion. Dane actually thought the board was a Creed McTaggart model cut by the hand of Hayden Cox. Suffice to say the board could move through a tunnel – just watch that first ride.” If you watch the video, in my humble opinion, Dane surfed the board with solid authority…ripped. A few months later, my son, Clint, named it the SD. Tweaked it a little. Added a bit of rocker. For the last 5 years, it has been one of our most popular designs. It is offered in the original dims, and Plus dims. The Plus dims are the ones more commonly used.
