An ode to Skip Frye and the 5' inch keel. Introducing the Big Sun Skip Hull concept.

Here we are channeling Skip, Simmons and Liddle for inspiration. Bottom contours include a rolled hull entry and a double concave exit. The large surface area makes for plenty of speed and the Hull is surprisingly responsive.  The hull entry helps get you through the slower fatter parts of the wave, and then lean back and feel it take off. Suits a surfing approach orientated towards trim, shoulders back and feet together. 

Slightly more responsive than our Simmons Displacement Hull. Both really exciting designs and we are looking at pushing the boundaries of what they can do.

Welcome to the midlength revolution. Get more waves, get in easier.
