Gordon and Smith Egg Review

What the Gordon and Smith Surfboards site says about it:

‘Think Wayne Lynch in EVOLUTION cruising into huge cutbacks with all the elegance of a long-board.

This board has been designed on 2 simple ideas that shorter board allows you to fit easier into the curl of the wave face when turning.

While the thickness and width of a long-board gives you that effortless flow and grace between turns. The constant curve of the double ended shape lets you change direction with speed to burn and avoid the dreaded short-board hop.

SHAPER
Nigel Perrow

OUTLINE
A classic double ender outline like something straight out of 1969.

Where the nose looks like the tail and the tail looks like the nose.

Extra width in the tail lets you choose between cruising down the line and cranking some old school turns. While general all round curve gives that forgiveness and allows you to recover from the most impossible situations.

Width through the middle also gives that extra floatation for paddling

ROCKER
Slight nose lift lets you into the steepest of waves general even curve throughout lets you trim like a long-board allowing you to approach turns with speed and control.

RAILS
A fuller volume rail through the middle and a softer more tucked under edge in the tail combines to give that forgiveness out of turns but also gives the flow needed for quick directional changes because it does not bite into the wave face too hard and allows you to really cut into the wave face when turning.

FIN SETUPFIN SET UP
For that old school feel try a flexy little 7-8’ fin with plenty of rake.

Beach break or bigger waves try a 7’’ cutaway with two small side fins.’
