No worries all fun blog posts and shenanigans will still be posted here on the blog. Its just that ReefWarriorsBoards has gotten so popular that it needed its own site for content. So Please check it out and spread the news!  As a bonus for the Website Launch of course we had to have a Promo Video.  Hit The Lip!

The Year of the “WWF & TopGun”. 2019 Session recap

Caseys Blog:

2019 was one crazy year again.  It was even worse than last year for surfing & wind (and last year was soo bad). If you’re a high wind junky you have to be losing your mind, but on the flip side if you have a TopGun/GoFoil kit, you are having the time of your life.  You’re having soo much fun in 5-15kt that its makes you not even give a shit about 15-25kt.   It truly is a game changer. As a result, 2019 was a huge year in The Board Room.  I spent a lot of time pumping out as many of these TopGun boards as I could. I am not going to lie, I am exhausted, but seeing soo many riders throughout the country and locally now having the time of their life riding these boards truly makes it all worth it. Spreading the stoke never gets old. Hopefully I can expand on that in 2020. Looks like another busy year ahead so lets get this party started Reef Warriors!

Board Room: “TOP GUN” Sup Foil/DW Sup Foil/Wind Surf Foil Board

Casey’s Blog:

Turn up the Volume to the max, go full screen and get some popcorn Reef Warriors. YouTube or Vimeo its on.!

This is the “Game Changer”,  its the reason I got into building boards. I wanted to be limitless in my vision and ability of what I could ride on the water, all hopefully resulting in some of the best surf craft on the planet.

After close to 2 1/2 yrs of design and water testing, Say hello to my dedicated Surf/Wind Foil Board line-up called “Top Gun”. These boards are ahead of there time and ahead of the game! From start to finish this was one of the most challenging and mind crazy thinking experiences I have ever had. I quickly learned in the beginning of surf foiling that everything is different. There are so many more design elements you have to deal with to get dialed in when compared to a regular surf board or Windsurf board. Your basically making a Jet that can surf. Crazy when you stand back and think about it.

In Total I have 4 boards in the “TOPGUN” lineup with basically the same design characteristics, but all of course having there own nickname ICEMAN, MAVRICK, GOOSE and VIPER.

ICEMAN is 7’x31″ 120L,17LB -This is the Board for everyone and can do “Foil” anything at any skill level.
MAVERICK is 6’x31″ 112L,15LB -This is the “PRO’s” board, sort of like an untamed Bull.
GOOSE is 7’3″ 145L,19LB -Just for learning and Heavyweights. Still in R & D phase.
VIPER is 5’4″ x 20 1/2″ 46L,8LB, -This is a Prone/Wake/Kite Foil surf board, Still in R & D phase.

Despite my best efforts to keep these High performance TOPGUNS on the Down Low. The word travels fast and the demand is crazy for the ICEMAN and MAVERICK, Resulting in a Long Waiting List already, So Please contact me if your interested. Facemanz74@live.com
