The E.P. (Extended Play) is the definition of a small wave ripper. This board is easy to paddle, quick on the draw, and very maneuverable. Perfect for summer, or just surfing anywhere and every time that the surf is not perfect, or maybe perfect conditions, but small.
Not overly wide and quite thin for a smaller wave board, this planes surprisingly quick and rewards you with massive speed and agility.
Beginner (2years+), Intermediate to advanced.
At the large side of sizing, the E.P. is a good beginner/intermediate board for someone that has been surfing for a while and is confident with pop ups and surfing faster boards, and at the smaller end, advanced surfers unlock new small wave potential on this.
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 E.P. is ideally ridden in waves from 1.5 foot to where your guts and or skill run out.
Volume variations available:
Lite – Standard version
HV High Volume – for bigger surfers, or novices, more volume built into the foil for more buoyancy.
Glassing: Currently Howitzer boards are only available in PU and Polyester resin.
Light Glassing- super light, but compromises durability.
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.
