The Tex has been a project which started at the end of last summer when a good mate of mine wanted a fish style board for his son that still had elements of a conventional/modern shortboard; My mates son Tex loved it so much I quickly upscaled and whipped one out for myself, The Tex(surfboard version) was born.
I also made for LSD test pilot Dustin Hollock and friends who put this clip together which totally nails what this board about...Having Fun when the waves are not so good.
The Tex is a super stubby little thing for when the waves are super small or you’re just feeling lazy.
The bloated girth and thickness of Tex will get you trimming and turning on any wave that breaks. The contemporary single into double concave gives this craft plenty of spark. A balanced outline combined with a large round squash tail helps with the control of this little animal.
The Tex should be ordered approximately 6 inches shorter than or three four liters more than your conventional short board.”
