If you've seen the latest episode of Creative Destruction, then you've probably seen Wade Goodall flaring on a few Al Merrick's. He was riding a MBM+ and a Whip. Wade surf's smooth. We've got a few of his boards here in the store at the moment, they probably won't be here for very long. Check out the clip below...
THE MBM + MODEL DESCRIPTION The MBM+ is an updated version the MBM. Working closely with team riders, Al modified the bottom contours to create the MBM +. All our team riders that were riding the MBM are now riding the MBM+ and achieving great results. Nathaniel Curran recently rode the MBM+ to victory at the US Open and the Lacanau Pro in route to qualifying for the 2009 WCT. It consists of a single concave bottom with flip in the tail. The MBM+ is an integral part of CI team riders’ equipment. FEEDBACK : needs to be surfed vertically in the pocket. DESIGNED FOR : intermediate to expert surfers in waist high to well overhead waves. Can also be custom ordered as a quad or a Step-up board.
THE WHIP :: MODEL DESCRIPTION In landlocked neighborhoods a man’s “whip” is his customized ride, his prized mode of transportation. During the Europe leg in 2009, Kelly’s “Whip” for less than perfect surf was his 5’9” x 18 5/8” x 2’5/16” – one inch shorter than what he won Snapper and Bells on in 2008. This is Kelly and Al’s re-worked version of the Flyer, with a few secret changes. This board is faster and more forgiving. If you’re looking for a board that excels when your shortboard seems to bog, this is the board for you. Also available as a Quad FEEDBACK: Should be ridden 3-4 inches smaller than your shortboard, 1/4" wider and the same thickness. DESIGNED FOR: Everyday use by intermediate to expert surfers in knee to head high surf.
