The Drifter Paulownia is a super fun all-rounder 

Designed as a versatile addition to your quiver, offering the soul of a longboard and the performance of a shortboard. The Drifter is a true hybrid and is great for part-time surfers and beginners looking for something with more float and volume, as it is easy to paddle and turn in a range of conditions.

The Drifter Paulownia is also a great option for long boarders looking for something to ride in bigger surf, with the combination of wide outline, parallel rails and pin tail holding the board through turns in bigger and hollow waves. 

The bottom starts with a deep concave at the nose which flows into a double v through to the tail which is designed to generate and manage speed. 

The fin set up option 2 +1: a single with 2 x side fins.

The Drifter Paulownia comes with a 2 + 1 set of FCS2 Glass Flex fins. 


The Art

The tail patch artwork has been created by Central Coast artist Grant Molony. This is a replica of the art that Grant and his brother Russ did for our showroom walls. We loved it and had to find a way to bring this to life on our boards. 

Growing up in The North Entrance, Grant has been making art his whole life. Looking through his remarkable catalogue of diverse work, Grant dabbles in photography (surfing, commercial, and wedding), painting, and illustration.  

Just over 12 months ago, Grant opened his own gallery on the Central Coast. This space not only provides him with a personal retreat to focus on his art and interact with the community but also allows him to support the local arts community by providing a place for local exhibitions, encouraging collaborations of local artists in this cultural hub.


Paulownia Timber

Is a great sustainable alternative for surfboard manufacturing. It is a fast-growing tree that has a high strength to weight ratio.. Paulownia is pale blonde in colour with its own character grain but approximately the same strength as Cedar.


Construction 

The board has a nice flex pattern that you don't get with most EPS boards and are light enough to be overpowered yet have enough weight for their own momentum.  The E Flex boards durable, light and dynamic underfoot making it the perfect travel companion.
