The Wittering Sunblade
The Sunblade design process began with a classic Californian shape and evolved through British surf sessions into a modern hybrid board specifically tailored to British waves. After being inspired by Todd Messic's excellent Dream Pin pig shape we re-created it here in the UK and then put it through a series of evolvements to tailor it for our waves.
The low centre wide-point puts volume under your feet and coupled with the lightness from the narrow nose means that the board pivots, stalls and turns on a sixpence. The Sunblade’s unique concave is a blend of teardrop and parallel delivering plenty of nose lift. We bladed the rails in the last third of the board to give a little more speed and bite, pulled in the tail and shaved a little off of the width to deliver a board which carves, trims and noserides like a dream. An utterly classic, hipped beauty which we could not be more proud of. Just add a sunrise or sunset session at your favourite break to find out how the Atlantic Sunblade earns its name.
The Sunblade comes standard as a single finbox setup at 9’1. We recommend the Alex Knost Sunshine 10 as an excellent fin pairing.
