What the Emery Surfboards site says about the Nemesis:
‘The name is deceiving.The Nemesis is NOT your enemy, it is however, everyone else’s! You will be catching a lot more waves and surfing them to maximum potential. No one likes a show off.
Nemesis has been designed with the smaller days in mind. That said, it will hold in anything up to solid 6 foot. The short stubby outline is perfect for getting through flat sections. Combining a straight outline through the tail with a swallow tail, allows for a tight pivot point, giving you the opportunity to turn at a moments notice. The flat deck holds volume under your front foot but moving out to a mid rail eliminates any chance of bogging rail. A single concave, moving into a vee with a deep double concave makes the Nemesis very drivey.
Nemesis, not your enemy, everyone else’s!’
What people are saying about it:
“The Nemesis is a deadly board on smaller wave days but will hold up on anything up to 6 foot. With a swallow tail combined with forward volume and a single concave into a vee bottom, the Nemesis is packed with plenty of drive and maneuverability.” – Boardcave
“I have always liked my performance boards & have been worried to get on a smaller wave board with a wider outline. I have to say overall I’m glad I did because the Nemesis made surfing so much fun in waves where my performance board would have struggled. One down side was that I had a little bit of trouble getting back on my performance board, but admittedly it only took a couple of surfs to get used to my regular shorty again.” – user Luke on Tradewind Surf
“Essentially it is a small wave board designed to help you get more than your fair share in average sessions, that said you will still be able to surf this one in 4 – 5 foot surf, way overhead. It has a short chunky outline for the small stuff, but boasts a flat deck & a mid rail, with a swallow tail for holding in & turning tightly.” – Tradewind Surf
