- PRODUCT DESCRIPTION & SPECS
The Equalizer, from the tiny yet fiery freckle faced grommet turned pro world champion surfer from Bondi Beach. Pauline learnt to surf on the hectic city beach break on half a snapped Coolite foam board, she knows exactly what it’s like battling for waves on equipment not ideal for the conditions.
The Equalizer designed by Pauline is a fun all-round board that has increased width for extra stability along with volume under the chest for easy paddling and to help get into waves without compromising performance.
This shape is not only forgiving for the entry level surfer, but it maintains the flow and drive to enable surfers to keep progressing and for more experienced riders, to push through more critical manoeuvres without hesitation.
Medium to low entry rocker helps with paddle power and glide while allowing the board to trim exceptionally well and carry over flatter sections with minimal effort. The Subtle single to double concave on the underside combined with the 5 fin option gives you the ability to tailor this model to the conditions whether it be a quad, thruster for more drive or a twin fin setup for a looser approach.
Pauline’s concept for the Equalizer was always on her mind, however the name had to be something meaningful and encompass what she believes in and represents. The name was brought to her in the form of a competition entry from a young Bondi gal named Marley which nailed her vision “The Equalizer - because you helped fight for equal recognition for women in surfing and sport. Your board could help girls like me be equal to all the doubting guys out there! It might give me special powers”
This was not only perfect for how Pauline feels about inclusivity and all the years of hard work to eliminate the gender stereo type within the surfing world. The Equalizer empowers girls and women of all ages and levels to give it a go and encourages confidence, to believe in themselves and feel 100% worthy of their place in the line-up.
If you are looking for a versatile forgiving all-round shortboard that offers stability for the beginner rider and glides into subpar conditions with ease, that also excels in pumping waves then the Equalizer by Pauline Menczer will be your go to.
