Nothing feels better than to ride the nose on a long section hanging ten or even getting a cheater five up there. Any long boarder worth his salt needs to have one of these moves in his repertoire and the Long Haul / Fusion- Poly makes it easier. The wide, full nose template gives one plenty of planing surface and room to stand up there comfortably. The square tail works as a release point allowing the board to pivot for quicker turns but you will be riding the other end of the Long Haul most of the time.
Gerry Lopez grew up in the extraordinary place that was Hawaii in the 1950s and 1960s. He played a part in the shortboard revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He experienced the awe, fear and ultimate satisfaction of finding the tube in the early days at the Pipeline. He traveled for surf throughout the world: to the original surf camp at G-Land, the exotic islands off Sumatra and especially to the magic island of Bali, Indonesia - before it became a popular surf destination. He experienced the beginnings of windsurfing on Maui, the early years of snowboarding and tow-in surfing at Jaws.
Fast forward to today and Gerry Lopez is shaping some truly unique boards that keeps his surfing journey moving forward. This collection of boards represents the quiver that he takes around the world to surf the ultimate breaks.
