Surfing up here in the Pacific Northwest requires a board that can handle a wide variety of waves from the small and fun to the bigger and faster. Very few surfboard designs handle such a wide variety of surf as well as the egg surfboard, a design that combines excellent wave catching ability with modern maneuverability and performance.
For many, if not most surfers, it truly is the perfect 'one board quiver'. The classic egg shape features a moderately wide continuous curve outline ending in a rounded tail, relaxed rocker, ample foil thickness, soft rails in front with harder rails in the rear, a simple flat bottom with mild tail V, and can be ridden as either a thruster or with a 2+1 fin set-up. With a wave range from small to overhead, this is a great design for the beginner through intermediate surfer, providing great paddling and wave catching, stability, speed and ease of turning.
A variation on the egg is the speed egg, featuring a bit narrower outline, a tad more rocker often incorporated with a single to concave bottom to generate higher speeds, and primarily ridden as a thruster. With a range from smaller into the well overhead arena, this is a great board for the intermediate through advanced surfer who wants to enjoy the pure fun attributes of the egg along with higher performance surfing.
Whether classic egg or speed egg, these boards can be shaped in a variety of widths and lengths ranging from mid 6' to mid 8'. And here at Moment Surf Company, we feature a variety of egg shapes designed for our local waves, and really enjoy working with surfers to provide the perfect egg shape for the rider.
