Jon has been making many different versions of mid-lengths, mostly customs ordered for surfers in Japan, but lately hes been building this one specific design for a bunch of his friends and a few select customers.
The response has been great, so weve decided to embrace the movement and offer our version of the mid-length to everyone.
Easy paddling, responsive and loose, the Mid Length Crisis has a semi-traditional, wide-point forward outline that is sleek and racey for fast, down-the-line drive, but full bodied enough to provide added stability and glide in weaker, slower waves.
It has a beautiful foil from nose to tail, with a rolled deck that leaves the meat in the middle of the board to help with paddling and nicely thinned out rails for sensitivity and bite.
The rocker is a moderate, long, clean curve running from tip to tail without any radical changes or flip. It is designed for fast paddling and to easily generate speed, carry flow, and smooth turning at any speed.
The bottom contours are a mild vee with double concave built into it (the old school term is Spiral Vee). This basically means that the board has no problem tipping from rail to rail, making smooth transitions through turns an easy accomplishment for all levels of surfer.
The fin set-up is 2+1 single box, which gives you options of single fin flowing or the added drive and control of some small side-bites. The stock glassing is 4 bottom and 6+4 deck for a little added weight and strength.
The Mid Length Crisis can be a fresh feeling addition to your quiver, and is a great board to have for those of you who want to try a new approach to the same waves youve been surfing forever.
