The Waveskate is a smallwave nugget. And yes, that is a surfboard, not a skateboard – just cleverly printed decals.
Very short and very wide, designed for having fun ripping on smaller days, not riding giants. Think Mini simmons with a muffin top.
Intermediate to advanced.
*Due to the shortness of the board, beginner surfers may struggle to get their backfoot on the board. If you are a beginner and keen for the Waveskate, drop me a line, and we can add in a bit of length to make it more user friendly for you.
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 Waveskate works on small days, mushy or pearling.
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.
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.
