Sharp Eye Disco Review


What the Sharp Eye website says about The Disco:

‘This is our most popular design created for small to medium size surf. It is a high performance small wave board that allows you to surf like your normal short board. The bottom has the most rocker of all other small wave designs and the outline is wider than the Glider model. You will generate speed and turn tight on those small, but fun days. It should be ordered 4 to 6 inches smaller than your regular high performance short board.’

What people are saying about it:

“I’ve surfed a new disco for about a year now in FL surf and I have to say it is the best board I have ever put under my feet. Not quite as super fast as my krypto or chili rare bird off the start/in flat spots (they’re less rockered) but if you put in a little leg work it smokes them down the line. The trade off is the incredible maneuverability that is second to none that I have ever ridden. Turns so tight and makes airs completely effortless. A little pressure on the tail and you’re airborne. I’m 155 surfing a 5’7 with am med fins and I’ve finally found my magic board. It’s a little boggy in anything under waste high but what isn’t that’s not a door. Stomach to a little over head this board will be your go to” – user Jack P on YouTube

“The best board on the market for high performance surfing in marginal conditions is the Sharp Eye Disco. I live on Florida’s east coast where the waves are decent at best. I can ride my Disco on just about any given day of the year as long as there is a little bump in the ocean, if not a longboard is going to be your only saving grace. Of my 4 Discos, 3 were swallow tails and 1 squash tail. I prefer the swallow tail because it allows the board to be more versatile for a variety of conditions and sizes. Throw a quad fin set in there and the board will hold up to a foot or two overhead. This is one of the more responsive boards I’ve ever had and can suit just about any surfers style. One of the best aspects of any Sharp Eye is the durability and quality. These boards last and can take a beating not mention Marcio is hand finishing every board that comes off the line (that’s the same guy who started Sharp Eye and makes all of Felipe Toledo’s WSL boards)!” – Mike P. of Surf Station

“This was the only board I brought with me to my summer as a student in Hakodate, Japan (up north in Hokkaido). Surfed everything from 1-2 foot mush to shoulder/head high stuff and loved this board. Then, I took it to Chiba for a small typhoon for the last week and surfed this thing in head-and-a-half/double overhead, powerful waves. Thing was maxed out, but it was the only board I had. Can’t go wrong with this board as an all-arounder, and despite what people say, this board won’t suddenly stop surfing when stuff gets powerful. I’m 5’10, 155 lbs and don’t think I’d want more than the 5’9″ I have.” – user Andrew Hurst on YouTube

“The Disco in general is one of the most high performance small wave boards that exists in my opinion. The other good thing is that the model does allow for a lot of personal discretion on dimensions being tweaked but in general yes, it is quite foiled so the nose and tail are much thinner then the rail in the center of the board. It really is one of the most user friendly, rippable boards for small to a little bit overhead.” – Sunrise Surf Shop

“Have owned a disco for about a year. Love the board. It’s my daily driver and surfs better than any other grovellor i’ve been on. Really rips and handles well in the 2-4ft range. Paddles well, can get into maneuvers easily. Can surf it in overhead but gets a little dicey for me. Ill switch to my game changer when its head high and bigger.” – user Thant Thein on YouTube
