Stacey The Roach Review

What the Stacey Surfboards site says about The Roach:

‘The Roach comes from a collaboration I did a few years ago with Bob Hurley based on a board he made for Rabbit Bartholemew back in the 80′s. The Rab3 is a really popular board that is made for the Hurley staff and team and I wanted to make a modern version of this for the Stacey brand. I’ve used the Rab3 as the base, but have tweaked every aspect of it it to give a really nice, settled feel when on the wave. It’s still got the flyer/swallow tail and intricate bottom contours to give it drive and a tight turning arc. It is available in either thruster or a five fin set-up to give you more options when you’re at the beach.’

What people are saying about it:

Breeds confidence in bigger, more solid surf but also feels lively and connected in smaller waves. This surfboard must be ridden to be believed!” – Compare Surfboards

The Roach utilises a very special compound called magic dust…this board is unreal! It makes me feel like I surf much better than I do 🙂 Feels so connected to the wave; wherever your feet may land on the deck, you always seem to be in the sweet spot (by design, I now know). Turns tight and hard. Super fast and responsive yet settled and controlled when it needs to be.” – Benny on CompareSurfboards.com

I just got myself the Roach and love it. it felt great straight away.” – user Simon on Compare Surfboards

The Stacey Roach is great for average to good conditions, anywhere from 2 foot up to 6 foot or more. This board performs exactly how you want it, giving you what you need at the right times. A super comfortable board to ride with plenty of control and speed at your fingertips.” – Boardcave

It was a top form board and this is “THE ROACH” model. Yes, it is cockroaches. There’s a cockroach in motion everywhere, the wave catch has speed going. It’s was the highlight, the higher the corresponding degree of variation of curve the greater the power curve. And in the dug section was easy to draw a comfortable circle smoothly. Was able to make 4-5 turns in a wave and maneuver is awesome! ! ! It demonstrates the true value at the same ripples in exactly the same size, but the feature was almost the exact opposite.” – insideoutsurf.com
