Board Room: ALGIE

Casey’s Blog:

This board is a pretty cool one.  A very high performance SUP Noserider!  that is named “ALGIE”.  It has been a dream of mine for 15yrs to have a SUP Nose rider.  I actually had one about 10yrs ago for about 40min, but then it broke in half in a 1ft wave. 😒  Ooops!  This board was very challenging to shape, because I just didn’t want it to nose ride, I also wanted to step back on the tail and carve some waves up.   The specs sum up to 10′ x 30″ x 3 5/8″ 136L 19LB.  The bottom shape has some concave up front in the nose for hanging ten, which flows into a double V in the mid-section for speed, then into a slight V in the tail for carvy carvy. The fins are a neat 4 +1 fin combination for max speed and grip.  I added a Lift sup Handle for easy carrying and finished off the hole deck with RSPro hexagon grip for maximum surfboard feel but without the wax.👌

So how did this board get named Algie.? nop it’s not named after seaweed. 😆  It got its name from one of my favorite music bands Pink Floyd. They have an iconic inflatable Pig that they use in their shows and was even on one of there album covers called “Animals”. Yes, and the name of that Inflatable pig is called “ALGIE”.   So that is where the theme of the artwork of this board came from. The nice piggy pink color to the Reef Warriors logo done up like “another brick in the wall”.  When I make a surfboard, not only do I want it to perform at the highest level, I also want it to tell a story. 😜🤙

 

me and the Algie creation.

 

Artwork turned out perfect.

  1. Very nice, the only detail I would have made it a round pin.
    I love round pins with round nose.
    I had one magic fun board like that.
    Anyway, congratulations.
