Are his board epoxy? what is his cubic volume at the moment? cheers
About 60% of his boards are epoxy. generally his volumes are about +/- 24L
Are custom Lips available yet?
We can take an order for the same one that kelly is riding, as we build anything custom, but lead time would be slightly longer as it would go through team shaper that does Kelly’s.
Lips is still being dialed in by Kelly and the boys for the final version that would be released.
Yo you know when the lips model is gonna be released??
Im planning to buy a new board but im holding off because the lip model looks very good. Do you know how long until the release date?
hey, what would be the volumes for a 5’11 x 18 3/4 x 2 1/4 dfr and a 5’10 x 18 7/8 x 2 5/16 fred rubble?
DFR 5.11 18.75 2.25 – 26.0L
RUBBLE 5.10 18.875 2.3125 – 26.6L
Hi,what would be the volumes for a 5’10 x 18 1/4 x 2 1/4 semi pro 12 and 5’10 x 18 3/8 x 2 1/4 semi pro 12?cheers
SP12 5.10 18.25 2.25 – 24.6L
SP12 5.10 18.375 2.25 – 24.8L
I don’t see the board rob was on in round one, it looked smaller/wider. Was that his florida board?
Do you offer the Florida flag logo on boards ordered off the site?
Right now we only offer the Florida logo on custom boards
5’8″ x 18 1/2″ x 2 5/16″ swallow tail Weirdo Ripper, short board version. 5 fin Fusion FCS.
Hi CI, what would be the volume of the same Wierdo Ripper as Kelly’s 5’8″ Bells Beach version above, but extended to a 6’0″?
Amo – you mean 6’0″ 18 1/2″ x 2 5/16″ ??
I meant if you proportionally increase all the model dimensions for a 6’0″ instead of a 5’8″
The DFR hits 40L around these sizes:
6’8 20 1/4 2 3/4 = 38.7 L
6’10 20 1/2 2 7/8 = 41.9 L
6’8 20 1/2 2 3/4 = 39.3L
6’10 21 2 7/8 = 43.1L
These are pretty long boards, you can get a shorter rail and the same float in a front footed compatible board that works in Cali chest to overhead with these two models:
WEIRDO RIPPER 6’2 21 3/8 2 3/4 = 40.3L http://www.cisurfboards.com/surfboards/weirdo-ripper-by-yadin-nicol/
THE WARP 6’5 20 1/4 2 3/4 38.0L http://www.cisurfboards.com/surfboards/warp-by-shaun-tomson/
THE WARP 6’7 20 1/2 2 7/8 41.4L
Proportional more”shortboard” dims would be:
WEIRDO 6.0 19.125 2.375 – 30.4L
tell me about the lip board model ?
Can i get a semi pro board in a step up or should i go a proton model?
The “Lips” is undergoing revisions with Kelly and is not an “official” model yet.
The Semi Pro 12 makes a great step up, very versatile
The Proton also makes an ideal step up for barrels.
thanks – CI
Did you say we can get the florida logo on customs? Thx
Yes if you live in Flordia and promise not to tell Kelly.
Just about to order a custom Fred. 6 0 x 19 1/8… but want to change the width and ad 1/16, to make it 2 7/16. What do you think that would ad for volume ?
Here you go:
RUBBLE 6.0 19.125 2.4375 – 29.3L
hey channel islands when are you going to release the lips model? what type of concave and rails does it have?
kelly not used any of these in round 1 of bells, you have the measuresof board that he used?
Round 1 bells beach board? That’s what I asked 3 weeks ago. What was the rocket fish he was riding? He schooled everyone that day.
Same as his round 1 Snapper board – 5’6 x 18 7/8 x 2 5/16 Werdo Ripper, Quad maybe with nubster trailer.
Snapper was 5’6 x 18 7/8 x 2 5/16 EPS #4 Prototype didn’t ride it,weirdo ripper- didnt have that board and the one above is a 5’8″ w carbon strip on bottom. Board was a swallow tail 5 fin, it’s wide and like 5’4″
G’day. Just got Semi Pro 12 5’6 x 18 x 2 1/8 and Fred Rubble 5’8 x 18 3/8 x 2 1/8. Can you please tell me the volume of those sticks? Cheers!
hello, tell me about the bottom and the rocker of the semi pro 12…cheers
Hi Ci, just wondering when you say kellys boards sre 60% epoxy, are they eps epoxy or pu epoxy, and if they are pu epoxy what are the advantages? Why does he ride the eps epoxys , what advantages does he get out of them?
Kelly now rides many EPS+epoxy layups. Not as many PU + Epoxy as he did in years past.
Kelly has always said riding the smallest board possible is his goal, so without saying this exactly, we feel he is tring to squeeze as much float out of his low volume boards as possible as many argue that EPS provides slightly more bouyancy or at least feels more bouyant.
When the waves get lumpy and/or powerful is when he switches to PU, as the extra bouyancy is less of a factor.
I am 5′ 8”, about 140lbs, and I ride a Fred Rubble 5 10 18 3/4 2 1/8. I would like to buy a SP12 to take to Indonesia, but don’t know the dimensions. Should I order a 5 11 18 3/4 2 1/4 or 6 0 18 7/8 2 5/16. Which one should I choose?
thanks for the reply guys
Im an advanced surfer 5`9“ 155 pounds. I ride a 5`9 18 1\2 2 3\16 Rubble in everything and love it. I surf Sebastian inlet and I’m looking to get a step up board for hurricane season. I can’t decide between a rubble round pin, rookie, dfr or sp 12. Any help would be appreciated
George, order the same width and thickness (or go 2 1/4) in a 5’11″ to 6’1″ Rubble or SP12 Round tail and specify “stepup”
kelly boards seems to be 24L and i think hes about 155lbs.. on his weirdo by stretching it out to 5’6″ or 5’8″ is that whats concidered a short board version compared to the 24L stock 5’5″? …and is he stretching it out a bit because the wave has a tad more punch? second, what wave choices to ride a kwhip or a weirdo? thanks!
Jamie – exactly, he like the way the board works but it almost making a “step up” version (which are shortboard dims)
Pretty much what I was thinking. Is the SP 12 single concave? And what would be the difference in the way the two would handle
I am a back footed surfer and need to understand if a semi pro 12 would suit me more than a Fred Rubble, and what other models would also work.
Hi Guys, When lips model will be for sale?
