Hi Crew. Back with another of our ‘board of the day’ posts introducing you all to some of the new stock we have in for summer. Today we are taking a look at a model and brand all the way from San Diego. Zakka came across Sharp Eye Surfboards when he went into a factory to meet Larry Mabile who does Third World Exotic boards (which we also have in stock). He reckons it was probably the most pristine factory he has ever walked into and the boards we have in stock reflect this – the finish on them are flawless. The shaper behind Sharp Eye is Marcio Zouvi who established the brand in 1993. Although relatively young, Marcio has a bunch of WQS guys on board including Fisher Heverly and Oliver Kurtz. Check the Sharp Eye website here: http://www.sharpeyesurfboards.com/
We have a quiver of Marcio’s Disco model which is a high performance small wave board. It has a bit more volume than your normal shorty and a little more rocker than a lot of other stubby small wave boards but it will let you surf like you are still on that normal shortboard. As a result you can still surf top to bottom and tight in the pocket which sets the board apart from a lot of other small wave boards on the market at the moment.
If you are after something a little different and aren’t getting enough love out of the major board brands, get in and check something a little different – bring your dancing shoes!
