Design

"Ah the mighty Plastic Machine! A pivotal design in the evolution of the modern surfboard. In 1967 the surf world was ready to go vertical, start utilising the power, the wonder, the elation of carving up the wave face... not just straight-out trimming across the wall. The Plastic Machine and its contemporary shapes were the first to allow that. Certainly not perfectly, but the deep vee rolled fast onto its rail and the rocker drove it up the face and the first true re-entries and lip-smacks appeared. Sure, the design was a little extreme, and within six months the Rincon and Tracker shapes dominated, but the Plastic remains a true icon. The stringerless construction means I have to handshape these so I can monitor the rocker throughout the glassing process. The deep whippy fin “follows” you around tight bends, and holds. A unique package... a true piece of surfing history.. only available from the originators. "
- Bob
