OverviewNo pumping, just fluid lines and an effortless surf, great in most conditions for most surfers. Throw it around or go straight down the line. You surf for the feeling not for the look.
The Corblimey has been designed with pro surfer Mitch Corbett. Corbs has a very fluid, cruisey nature to his surfing. He wants to really connect with the wave and utilise the opportunity to do turns and get barrelled when the waves let him. The Corblimey was invented to make surfing in a variety of conditions as easy as possible. Easy to paddle, fast down the line and great on rail, this board is the ultimate in easy riding with progressive surfing at its core. its different but trust me it really works.
The tech stuff and why we did it
The Corblimey was a totally new design from scratch is an odd looking board but it really does the job. With a wider nose template and outline, and the added volume on the deck and rails, the Corblimey paddles like a malibu and has great stability once up on your feet, the rockers are similar to that of a shortboard with a slightly lower nose rocker to increase speed and drive. The tail shape is fairly wide in front of the fin area which dramatically pulls into a tight swallow tail via a little winger. This again helps with the boards drive going forward as well as creating a great pivot off the back foot to really be able to throw it into turns. The deck is quite full, with a boxy shortboard rail to combat the extra volume. The concave is a double right through to the wide point with a single running from tail to nose, the swallow tail has a slight vee off the back to add control and smooth rail to rail transition. It's just as comfortable in the barrel as it is on the open face. This board is a super exciting concept that will really push the everyday surfer into a relaxed, easy and at the same time exhilarating surf. No pumping required!
The Corblimey is supplied with a set of FCS M5 fins and a set of FCS GX's.
