Stacey The Flathead Review

What the Stacey Surfboards site says about The Flathead:

‘Grease, Oil & Fuel. The smell of it in the garage as you tinker away on your Flathead. “Strip it back to the bare essentials”, that’s what the old guy would always say. “You want simplicity, reliability & responsiveness, then you’ll have yourself a good ride”. Chopper builders piece different bikes together to get exactly what they want. We’ve built our FLATHEAD with pieces of the SHOVEL HEAD & The TWIST. Only leaving the things that are necessary. Everything you need & nothing you don’t in this small wave machine. Ride on…’

What people are saying about it:

The bare essentials, the Stacey Surfboards Flathead has a straightforward design that is not only reliable and responsive but also exciting in the water.” – Compare Surfboards

I’ve had my 5″10 flathead for a while now…It seems best in surf that’s over shoulder high though for me, I’m 5’10 and 82kgs myself. Any smaller and, though it goes, it does seem to bog a little and slow down.” – James on Compare Surfboards

The Flat Head is perfect for those smaller days when you really want to rip with a responsive board. Surfed in a thruster setup, this board is a simple, uncomplicated template that will do everything you need.” – Boardcave

A no fuss surfboard designed for performance in smaller waves. Nothing too complicated going on here design wise – Lee Stacey has really stripped it back to the bare essentials with this one, only leaving the things that are necessary.” – Zak Surfboards
