  • YOUR BOARD WILL BE PERSONALLY HANDCRAFTED WITH PASSION, HOWEVER, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE ARE EXPERIENCING MINOR DELAYS RELATED TO THE QLD/NSW BORDER RESTRICTIONS ALTHOUGH WE HAVE ADAPTED OUR PROCESSES TO MINIMISE THESE DELAYS 

    The new ‘Aussie made’ Island Style First Mate is a classic ‘easy rider’ Midlength that will keep your stoke and wave count high. 

    Not to be confused with a Mini Mal, the First Mate offers a higher level of performance with less area in the nose and tail, and more progressive bottom curves (Rocker) for better response and turning. What it does lend from its longer & wider counterparts is the ease at which it paddles and glides into waves.

    The outline is inspired by the 70’s era with the wide point shifted forward. This is great for adopting a forward trim position when surfing down-the-line point waves. Another key feature is the tapered tail outline that’ll ‘hold in’ on steeper waves and offer plenty of manoeuvrability when pushing off your back foot. The 2 + 1 fin setup can be configured to suit different conditions, and when used with a single fin and smaller side bites, offers directional stability and flow when turning. 

    Made at the S-Lab facility on QLD's Gold Coast by experienced craftsmen, the First Mate is constructed using the highest quality foam, composites, fiberglass and resins sourced from trusted suppliers. These boards are built to deliver optimum flex, performance, durability and clean aesthetics for your shedding pleasure.

    Progressing surfers looking to improve their skills and perfect smooth, flowing turns will benefit from this model. Alternatively, the First Mate is also a great option for intermediate-to-experienced surfers wanting  to keep up with the rippers by laying down some slicing turns on the face.

    Please be aware that due to the nature of the build process for these boards we cannot accept cancellations beyond 48 hours after the order has been placed
