Meyerhoffer Surfboard

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Product Design / Leisure / 2010

The classic longboard is an elongated, slightly concave ovoid, a shape that has changed little since surfing was invented by the ancient Hawaiians. This board is a shorter board in a longer board, combining the best of both. The unique narrow waist effectively moves the widest point of the board further back around where the surfer stands, creating an outline of a shortboard in the tail. The board paddles into the waves really easily and nose-rides like a classic longboard, but at the same time it turns and is fast like a shortboard. It opens up a broader spectrum of what you can do on the wave. Enjoy!
