Dawn – Small wave glider


The Dawn is what happens when you make a photocopy a minimal on 75% of original size.  You end up with a board that catches waves early, glides on the water, handles great and is surprisingly easy to duckdive and fit in your car after surf.  The board has loads of volume distributed in the foil, a full nose to aid quick planing, and a narrow squash tail for quick turns.
Suited to:
Beginner through to advanced.
When ordering this board, please provide your sex, age, weight, height, fitness levels and surfing experience (in years), so that we can make sure that the board is a fit for you.
Wave size:
The Dawn is ideally ridden in waves from 1.5 foot to shoulder high.
Volume variations available:
Lite – Standard version
HV High Volume – for bigger surfers, or novices, more volume built into the foil for more buoyancy.
Glassing options: Currently Howitzer boards are only available in PU and Polyester resin.
Standard glassing – good quality, optimal weight to strength for specific board’s intended use.
Heavy duty glassing – Heavier weight glassing, good for novices, or boards that see’s a lot of travel to surf.
Fin layout:
Board colours and designs:
I design unique artwork for every board that leaves my shaping bay, and if you specify colours (1, 2 or three max) to be used in your design, I will use this to design artwork for your board.  Alternatively, if you don’t specify anything, you get whatever I feel like doing in line with the Howitzer brand language.  If you want a blank board, with only decals, please specify BLANK.
*Please note:  All Howitzer boards are handshaped and not a single board is a stock item. Because of this boards take a little longer, but you get a truly unique board.
**Manufacturing time on boards are between 4 and 7 weeks from when you place your order, and will be available for collection as soon as it is ready, so please be patient.
