That looks like a mirror finish

It'll break your heart if you ding it

Heya Tardy - any suggestion of what ordering the 2-piece option might cost retail on a custom?

Rumor has it that it's in the neighborhood of $400 USD.... but I can't swear by that

Yep ...I was told 5_600 Australian $
We will know January.I'm still a test pilot for it but pretty sure all is well with the construction.

No excuses for apartment dwellers now! Wow! One of the highest performance boards available in 2 pieces. Incredible. Looking forward to the arrival and report and more pictures!

Cheers

This 9'4 Creek just flew from Cape Cod to Brazil..... soon to the South Pacific.
It's getting a workout by my buddy who charges.... and travels the world.

Color coordinated to his car

I'll get on it between trips, and report.

Not sure when the 2-piece option will be available to the general public.... but we're closing in on it.

That's a great pic Tardy, you get a much better view of the join and pad join.. which when you think about it would always raise some questions about durability.
But that looks mighty fine and well built.

Ohhh, any ideas when it gets wet under your feet ?

Ok ..it's been a long journey ,but ..a factory move by Sunova to a surf break doesn't happen over night ,as there had a lot of boards to move .plus gear ...so I have to be patient ..but the end product will be good and worth the wait ,so here 's a few photos on paper on what's new to the black acid ...deep purple tail end ,it will be gloss too ...should have some photos this weekend as it comes off the production line Hope you like it ..I do ..I think it just sets it off ,and it's one of a kind .

Looks sweet mate. Feels a long time coming for me... let alone you! haha

I'm curious as to how the flex will feel on a wave...

they have carbon titanium rods through them as well as the screws and lugs .
so i would say not much flex at all.
time will tell ...it probably won't come undone much unless i go one another SUP trip.
pimp my ride ...it sure has had its fair share ,lots of features .

How deep are the ledge handles they use?
Not a fan of the Lift sup handles in their stock boards.

maybe hoppo can answer that one , this is my first custom ,hoppo,also got one with the sunova ledge handle in his last custom .they look similar to
the naish ledge handle ,
I also need this type of handle as i have to climb out of rocks ,and trying to get your finger in sometimes to pull it up is not fast enough ....i like my fins the way they are .although the lift handle is good for sitting your paddle on as you climb out and use one hand to scamper .

i find the ledge just a little quicker to grab your board ,if a wave comes in ,
