About XTR EPOXY:
XTR boards have a closed cell foam that does not suck water. All other epoxy boards that have EPS foam in the middle will suck water. So do not take the EPS epoxy boards out in the water with dings, or your board will end up weighing 5lbs more.
All listed product dimensions are bases for the model and can be customized to any specifications.
Colors & Patterns are similarly fully customizable upon request [Client must provide graphic assets].

Joe has been building quads since 1981. The round pin quad has a distinct advantage over all other 3 fin boards of various tails, including the Quad fin bat tail and twinzer swallow tails.

The bottom rocker, fin placement, fin cant and toe are all crucial to the Quad fin being effective. The perfect combination of fin placement, board bottom and rocker creates a faster, more maneuverable board.

After 26 years of empirical testing, Joe has perfected the fin placement and bottom formula of the quad-fin. It has proven to work so well, he has refined this combination to work on his Hawaiian guns and tow-in boards; something the shaping world didn’t even consider.

The dimensions of the round pin quad can also be blown up to accommodate larger, more aggressive surfers. No longer are bigger guys destined for longboards; if you can shred, Joe can custom build the perfect short board for you.

Do you believe in magic? This board will make you a believer!

The secret is in the bottom of these boards. A true single in a double, not a double inside a single concave. There is a slight V in the last 11 inches of the tail. This formula smooths out the bouncing in choppier waves and makes for a fast board, necessary for busting (and landing) big airs.

This board can be made to any size specifications.

Go shred the rocket fish instead!

This is a hot , slashy, small wave board. Introduced with 3 fins to the market 18 years ago by Simon Anderson, this board has come full circle. Also available in 4 fins.

Using new rocker lines and templates, Joe is re-introducing this design for the Summer and small surf.  It has very soft rails running further back, which makes the board super maneuverable without catching a rail.

This board can be made to any size specifications.

Give the longboard a rest this Summer.

Go shred a swallow instead!

Wing Swallow 4 fin is the hottest small wave board in existence! Why is that?

1]. It is wide in the middle and tail.

2]. It has a super fast bottom rocker

3]. Quick plane profile template tuned to turn.

4]. Slight V with a slight double barrel concave bottom.

5]. Very soft rails in the catch zone which makes it more maneuverable without catching a rail.

6]. Fin setup allows it to turn on a dime. Eliminating the big fin on the tail creates the magic for this board to slash in small surf.

This board is very versatile. It will handle at least 70% of the conditions you are likely to come in contact with. The board is also fast and turns in small gutless surf that it makes fun to ride.

This board can be made to any size specifications; it can be shaped fatter with a fuller nose and tail for bigger guys.

SERIOUSLY – Give the longboard a rest this Summer!

This board is the ultimate small wave basher. It’s state of the art design covers 80% of surfing, from waist high to 2′ overhead. It can be blown up for the biggest XXL guy that rides a 10′ log and wants to ride a “shortboard”.

The 4 fin placement is crucial as the water flowing between the fins is like a fuel injector.  The advantage over a thruster is that a quad doesn’t have a fin stuck in the center of the tail, and it makes it turn quicker and goes faster.

With two fins on the rail, you have more holding power for bigger waves. With two unique wings it gives this quad a large range in wave size.

The bottom is a single to double concave with ‘V’ on the tail with low rocker. Joe Blair is a pioneer in quads. He has been shaping and refining this model for the last 25 years.

Wide in the middle & tail.

Pulled in nose.

Curvy outline.

“PINS RULE, SQUARES DROOL”

Here’s the story…

Once upon a time, three fins ruled the line-up. They required a lot of tail kick to compensate for their fins being stuck too far on the tail. This extra tail kick causes the board to lose speed. Quads have a faster bottom and are more maneuverable due the fin placement being moved further up. The rear fins are smaller, creating a looser, snappier turning board. Two fins placed on the rail give you mega-bite to prevent spin-out. The round pintail is better than bat or swallow tails for the following reasons:

Rolls into turns more quickly.

Smoother ride on the wave.

Hangs in the curl better when going faster.

My boards also have softer, tucked rails, making them smooth and maneuverable to free-up my super fast bottom. The full concave transitions to double concave with a speed spot between your feet, to a slight ‘V’ in the tail. This tried and true bottom with a unique fin placement and special fin angle is unlike any other manufacturer in the industry… secret formula.

Let’s go fishing!

This is the most progressive fish design on the water. Notice the nice, curved outline – no wide tail, no parallel rails. This outline allows for super tight turning, yet still has that skating, fish feel. The bottom has all my signature features: chined rails with full concave to slight ‘V’ in the tail for a loose and fast ride. By drawing in the tail more than most fish designs, it allows the board to snap turn much easier. The full nose adds buoyancy for mushy days and a little extra nose kick prevents pearling on late, critical take-offs. If you like to fish, this is the board for you! As always, I can make this board in any size, for any surfer.

The typical wide swallow tail is flintstone. The straight bottom with the straight tail lines and hard rails, makes a fish dig the rails and spins out.

The round pin rolls into turns much more quickly, holds in better when you’re going faster, and has a much nicer feeling on the ride.

Wider boards need softer rails so they are smoother and do not dig rails. The fins are moved up and set in further than industry standards to make this board ride like a 6’1″; this stick goes rail to rail smooth and quick.

Now let’s go have some FUN!

Do you want a shorter, wider board with a fuller nose like a fish, but don’t want to sacrifice maneuverability? Round Pin Quad to the rescue! This board is a hybrid of my fish and rocket fish, blending the fuller fish nose with my signature round pin tale. This outline combined with a single concave throughout and minimal rocker, allows this board to catch waves with ease, scream down the line and throw some spray when you make that snap turn on the lip.
