From the mind of Jon Pyzel comes the quick and zippy Amigo FST Surfboard. This swift little confidant has a speed oriented rocker that allows for a fast-paced ride, but has a loose, snappy feel in all kinds of waves. The outline is full, with a nice hip leading into a wide tailblock which adds to the speed but lets it break free where you want it to. The bottom has single concave running all the way through, with just a touch of double concave between the fins. This combination gives lift to get the board planing on top of the water easily and helps maintain momentum through flatter, weaker sections. If you love riding a stubbie, but you crave a more high performance feeling, the Amigo is going to be your new BFF.
FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY
FST relies primarily on the Parabolic Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than the traditional PU surfboard. Please note our boards are definitely not indestructible and if slammed by a thick lip, or if you land incorrectly in the flats after doing an aerial, it is possible to break them.
The Parabolic Balsa Rail features 12mm balsa built from 3 x 4mm strips, which as mentioned not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory supplied by the balsa rails ensures boards maintain their lively feel for longer. With a retail price point slightly above premium polyurethane surfboards, FST offers an extremely high performance, durable surfboard.
