The Surf Thump

10 reviews   |  

The Surf Thump offers you versatile handling without sacrificing the paddling and gliding benefits that makes us all love longboards in the first place.  

The Surf Thump will feel noticeably more lively than the Lumberjack, and easier to maneuver because of the thumb-shaped tail.  If you surf a variety of spots and breaks, this board might just be your new best friend.  

As a side benefit, this is the only longboard in our range that we recommend any fin ranging from the D-Fin to the Pin Fin, so get creative when it comes to trying different fin templates in the Thump.

It Does it All

I never used to log, but I finally gave in and with my surf thump I understand just how much fun logging is. This board works hard so I don’t have to—it makes it easy to carve up point breaks, beach breaks, and helps you nose ride for days. Not to mention this board is the best looking in my quiver! So fun just to cruise when the waves are small

In love.

I can't decide if I'd rather stare at the board all day or ride it. My 9'2 Surf Thump is an absolute work of art and a blast on the water. Glidey and cruisey but quick enough to dodge your buddy wiping out on a party wave. I bought the board on a (slight) whim because it was in stock, and I've been manufacturing excuses to take it out ever since. Now I just need another one so I can hang this one on my wall.

9'8 Surf Thump

Bought a Surf Thump last fall - typically surf Malibu on south swells during the Summer and Blackies when the shorter/mid period west swells start to show up in the late fall and Winter. Wanted a board that would work in both point break and beach break conditions and the Surf Thump really fit the bill. Plenty of foam to glide in from outside at First Point and a nice stable platform for the occasional nose ride. Worked great on the peaks just north of the Pier in Newport as well - handled the drop on bigger/steeper sets with ease and the tail is just the right mix for both hard cutbacks as well as pivot turns. A one board quiver for chest high waves and under, as it works equally well in point or beach break set up. Highly recommended
