Jim is Jim Phillips Surfboards. Jim designs, builds and signs every board in his stable pulling from his vast experience as a shaper and surfer on all coasts.
This late '60's style Step-deck copy was hand shaped by Jim Phillips with a deep concave nose and vanishing 1/16'' outboard stringers. Highly sensitive, using the best of performance while maintaining that retro feel. Strong 1/2'' redwood center stringer and tough 8oz Volan glass with a unique mango tint. Features include a glassed on leash loop, a custom fin box and a custom fin to go with it. The step deck design will allow the nose to actually flex giving you even more time on the nose!
***THIS BOARD IS DISCOUNTED BECAUSE IT WAS THE UNFORTUNATE VICTIM OF SLIGHT SHIPPING DAMAGE. THERE ARE PROFESSIONALLY REPAIRED DINGS ON THE VERY TIP OF BOTH THE NOSE AND TAIL***
*THIS JIM PHILLIPS SURFBOARD INCLUDES A STOCK FIN*
***PHOTOS SHOWN ARE OF THE ACTUAL SURFBOARD YOU WILL RECEIVE!!!***

RatingThis board was fashioned after the late sixties Hansen Power Flex model. The story goes like this. Yater made the spoon first. He scooped foam out of the nose to reduce the swing weight of the heavy longboards of the earlier sixties. They actually rode the nose well because you were standing in the concave. Noll created the Da Cat Model after Dora tried one. Then other companies saw the potential. Hansen got a hold of the idea and thinned the nose out even more. Now the nose could flex to plane out flatter with the riders whole weight on the tip creating the sensation of weightlessness.(Posted on 2/3/2016) 2016-02-03
