A ...lost classic. The Sub Scorcher is a relaxed rocker, conservatively outlined, higher volumed, easy riding spin on the modern performance shortboard.
A central concave to spiral-vee in the tail, small wave specific design. Under the feet of young teen phenom, Kolohe Andino, the OG Sub Scorcher was a break out hit, during its initial run. It has remained a custom order mainstay, ever since. With its mellow rocker, wide, stable outline, shallow single to double, to vee in the tail, the Sub Scorcher is as easy paddling, easy planing and easy riding as a modern, pointed nose shortboard gets.
We started with our OG Sub Scorcher swallow and introduced the STING. We added a bit of width through the center, some extra rail rocker and injected the radical, area reducing STING at about 18” (1/4 of the way up) from the tail. The STING is followed by a gradual tail curve, into a 6” wide, shallow swallow. The extra width in center assures easy entry and quick planing out of the gate.
The STING makes a sharp reduction in width and creates an acute angle for jamming quick, radical, controlled turns into tight sections, or out on the waves open face. Generously dimensioned, with plenty of volume, the SUB SCORCHER-STING, is an every mans, playful, performance shortboard, with the STING design element allowing easy initiation of radical turns and maneuvers.
