Evolution II Surf SUP Board by Ian Balding - Custom Surf SUP Shaper

Evolution II Surf SUP Board




This Evolution II SUP was derived from its smaller sibling, the Evolution surfboard. This shape, be it the surf or surf SUP model, was inspired by Wayne Lynch’s 60’s “shortboards”. The Evolution II boasts its modern performance capabilities while not forgetting the shape is was originally refined from. This board is built from 7’0”³- 9”²6″ with modern rockers, bottom contours, and fin sets from twins and tri’s, to quads and five fin sets.

We offer this board with two distinctly different bottom contours:

The first features a deep single concave that runs roughly ¾ of the way through the board from nose to tail with a deep single channel through the fin area. This provides extra hold with less drag when paired with the right fin set- up. For this design, we recommend a large quad set with a smaller “nub” fin in the center channel, providing a very fast and loose feeling board.

The other bottom design option is the double concave with vee that is paired with a 2 plus 1 fin set up. The center fin is recommended to be a deep reaching flex fin, and the side fins would be traditional surfboard side fins. This set up gives the board drive, power and projection, plus a little added hold in larger surf. Custom options such as wood veneer, carbon work, graphic and fabric inlays,  and color swirls are available. Please reach out to us and we’ll help design the board that is right for you.
