The Dawnie is a mini version of the Dawn. Where the Dawn is for gliding, the Dawnie is available in 6’0 and under and made for a more aggressive style of surfing.
The Dawnie retains some characteristics of the Dawn, namely easier paddling, and easy planing, but has a whole host of new characteristics that comes from the smaller, lighter board weight, along with a slightly different foil and rail setup.
Fast turns, rapid cut backs, floaters and quick rail to rail surfing, all parts of the Dawnie’s repertoire.
Intermediate 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.
The Dawnie is ideally ridden in waves from 2 foot to shoulder high.
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.
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.
