The Wrecking Ball design comes from an experimental shortboard design Ben Aipa worked on in 1977. A full nose and broad outline in the front half of the board meet an unmistakable Aipa wing near the back third of the board, where the outline curves in a tight radius untill it hits a multi-pronged experimental tail. Ben’s futuristic outline packs a ton of board into a short package. The resulting increase in volume gives the Wrecking Ball extra float for faster paddling and a feeling of “unsinkableness” even the meanest of flat spots can’t sink. Updated with high-performance bottom contours by Ben’s son Duke the wrecking ball features a transitional bottom that fades from a rolled nose to a single concave in the middle of the board to a double concave under the fins and finishes with a vee out the tail. To make the most of the Wrecking Ball’s down-the-line drive and allow riders to harness control of the extra speed this board generates, we’ve opted for a quad fin setup. The result is a high-performance super groveler that blends classic design, experimental innovation, and modern sensibilities into a surfboard that drives down the line with unparalleled speed and bashes through sections without remorse. Feel the power of The Wrecking Ball!
