The 2018 Radius is the latest incarnation of our top high performance design, the Bastard, John John Florence's go-to board during his run at the World Title in 2016.
Jon Pyzel and John John have refined the design even further over the last year and not only does John John love it, but it was chosen by Jordy Smith as his favourite board and the 2017 STAB IN THE DARK event wInner!
Designed to be ridden fast and loose in above average to great surf, the Radius has a smooth, medium/high bottom rocker for easy turning and a single concave to add lift and drive. The gentle hip in the outline keeps it lively and sharp, while adding drive. Added rocker gives the board a slightly more snappy feel. Combine this with a generous single concave, and you get a board with more speed and a vibrant feel.
Proven in everything from the beach breaks of Rio and France, the point waves of J Bay and Trestles, and the reefs of the South Pacific and Indonesia, it feels best in surf with a little curve on the face, and just keeps getting better as it gets into more juice.
The Radius is as high performance as we go, so not the best choice for beginners, but if you are looking to elevate your surfing up another level this board will get you there.
