Board Of The Week- 6'7" Aleutian Juice MPegg

Finally getting the available surfboards for sale organised, cataloged and listed. Here's the first and it's a beauty of a Parmenter. 6'7" x 21" x 2.65" MPegg single fin, pale avocado tint and comes with a Parmenter templated raked single fin. This disc is no straight retro replica though, it's definitely got the genes of the boards MP rode at Kirra, but built with the knowledge from decades of refinement in board design to help  trim the experimental weirdness and keep the elements that fundamentally work. Wide point forward with straighter rails for projection and drive in everything from thigh high mush to a hollow screamer, and those rails are low, soft and rolled so they avoid the twitchiness hull rails are prone to but the thickness is foiled so they don't feel fat and slow. The bottom shifts from a convex hull-y nose to a flat v-panel in the tail so the board planes beautifully and is still responsive. It's a lot of subtlety and design history in a very clean package, and it's an extremely fun board. This one is $850 with the fin, or we can do a custom to what specs you feel will work for you.
