Over the years we have championed the ‘Involvement’ model as a period-correct, pig-ish outlined, thin-railed, rolled bottomed pocket rocket! Although we have dedicated fans of that model, it demanded a high level of technical ability, which meant it was no easy feat to master. Enter the Pinvolvement.
The name leaves little to the imagination, especially if you are familiar with the aforementioned “involvement-era" surfing and surfboards. The "Pin" part of the name... again, requires no genius to notice the tail shape. The tail, however, is the ticket to why the Pinvolvement has made it through the R&D process and reserved its seat as the new go-to log for just about everyone who's had a chance to ride one. The lack of tail corners make for a huge sweet spot when turning. Rather than a lift-and-pivot type turn, the belly and the pinched-up tail lets it fully drop on rail, to do more of a mid-length type carve - making it incredibly comfortable in tight arcs. With a lower entry rocker than its previous namesake and fuller 50/50 rails - trimming is not limited to the pocket and the Pinvolvement maintains its natural speed on the open face. The Pinvolvement is a quick-reacting, rail-carving modern log that'll sit comfortably in the pocket of your favourite point break but really thrives in beach breaks and linking up shifty corners at your local.
