Hocus Pocus Asymmetrical Hull 8'0"
This one's sold, but we can make more! Contact us!
This model is asymmetrical and was designed for bigger waves and more control, but it will perform well in smaller waves, as well. The back side edge is six inches shorter than the front side, and the board shown here was a made for a goofy foot. The Hocus Pocus can be shaped for a regular foot and the dimensions and length can be tweaked to meet the exact requirements of the rider.
The toe side has a longer rail line and a small increase in tail rocker. It's also a bit more pinched than the heel side which has a shorter rail line with a bit more curve. The bottom has a rolled vee transitioning to a double concave through the fins.
Carl Ekstrom, a shaper in San Diego, California who spent many of his surfing days at Windansea, was granted a patent for an asymmetrical surfboard design in 1967. The Hocus Pocus pays homage to Carl's vision and insights.
The glassed-on fins are made from resin brush handles used in the production of this and other Locus surfboards. The blue tinted bio-resin in between the handles is beautifully translucent. The keel fins are off set with the heel side mounted further up.
This model uses a Marko Foam 25% Recycled EPS blank that is also 100% recyclable.
Like all Ventana and Locus boards, this one is glassed with Entropy Bio Resin, a very strong and lightweight epoxy made with a high tree sap content. The top deck uses a sheet of 6 ounce fiberglass plus a sheet of 4 ounce; the bottom uses a single 6 ounce sheet.
The board was made in Santa Cruz, California and is a collaboration between innovative shaper Tyler Hopkins of Locus Surfboards and master craftsman Martijn Stiphout of Ventana.
