Zak x Doug Rogers Double FlyerZak Surfboards
Several times a year we get Doug Rogers to whip up a few hand-shapes for our racks & these double flyer swallow tails are the latest batch. A shape that is generous on the volume but doesn't skimp on performance.
Built to be surfed as an allrounder for local conditions - this shape has a fuller foil up front with a classic beaked nose for paddle power and glide . The shape then thins out considerably through the back 3rd into a nice sharp refined tail for bite, responsiveness and maneuverability.
The flyers allow the outline to be straighter in front of them - making this one speedy shape down the line, off the front foot. The flyers break this straight line and act a pivot points, helping the rider to break line and redirect the board with ease. The flyers also reduce the area behind them, allowing the tail to pull in - giving you more authority and grip on the wave face.
This board has a fairly smooth mid to low rocker with a single to double concave bottom with vee running out the last 6 inches of the tail. This bottom contour helps to give you a great balance of speed, lift and maneuverability - making this quite a lively board to surf for it's size.
