"The “Weekend Warrior”: Is the latest greatest “Domesticated” model we make. It came about after a couple months of myself riding the new V2-Shortboards. When the surf got tiny I did not want to go back to the radically different small wave boards (like the Couch Potatos or Bottom Feeders) and have to adjust so dramatically back and forth. It seemed I needed a new twist on a small wave, pointed nose, shortboard influenced design. Hoping to make as seamless a transition as possible from the V2-Shortboard, I started with my 6’3″ 21″ 2.75″ and shortened it, then lowered the entry rocker, widened the nose a bit and widened the tail dramatically. The extreme wide tail creates a very straight outline in the rear half of the board (reminiscent our our “Tri-Fish” and other Rocket Fish of the mid 90′s), so I figured I could increase the concave for more lift in small surf, which also added significant rail rocker… thus adding a more progressive and tight wrapped turning radius off of the rear foot. For the tail shape, I was thinking swallow, but it looked old and done a million times. I first cut a diamond into it, hoping to shorten the rail line further and allow one to stand a bit more central on the board, and then taking a cue from many of the young indy-hipster shapers, I cut a deep wedge into the stringer. This created a “Split Diamond” tail. The prototype I made myself seemed to cause some controversy. At the same time, it also gave this design a lot of instant recognition and surely brought the other shapers plenty of exposure they might not have normally received. All the elements add up to a shorter, compact and effective small wave design that is high on volume, but holds and carries it well. It should allow us “Domesticated” dudes another option to chose from in order to ride a pointed nose weapon in small and gutless surf. It makes an incredible one/two punch as a two board quiver with the V2-Shortboard. For those turned off by the Split Diamond tail, we have already made them as swallows, diamonds and even winged squash tails… all with similar results. – Matt Biolos"
