The Inglewood is quickly becoming our most popular board. The Inglewood is a true displacement hull. A tapering 1” cedar stringer vanishes before the tail, creating a flex tail. The flex tail combined with a big flex fin will load up on your bottom turn and release propelling you into a high line on the wave. A bottom turn like you’ve never felt before. Usually ridden further up on the board, The Inglewood is ideal for point breaks or down the line reef breaks. This board is all about style and trim. Nothing quite compares to the feeling you can achieve on these types of boards. Standard size range is 6'6" - 7'0".
The Espresso is a new take on a classic shape. The Espresso was inspired by a shape that Shawn Stussy created for Russell in the 70’s. The board features a modern bottom contour with a moderate single concave tapering into a spiral vee through the tail. The modern rails with a hard edge back by the fin gives The Espresso the ability to be surfed more off the tail than other single fins while keeping the same style and fluidity. Perfect for small peaky days at your local beach, The Espresso also has the ability to handle a serious set if it rolls through. Standard size range is 5'2" - 6'0".
Our favorite mid length model, the Slim Jim bridges the gap between your longboard and shortboard. Rolled bottom and 50/50 rails give the Slim Jim a classic feel in a small package. Fits well in the pocket, perfect for getting head dips and trimming in the pocket at your favorite beach break. Usually ridden from 6'10 to 8'0.
The Moonshiner is another variation of a displacement hull we make. After having a number of customers request a shorter option of a hull we designed the Moonshiner. While most hulls are ridden in the 6'8 to 7'2 range the Moonshiner is designed to be ridden in the 6'0 to 6'8 range, extra volume and width is added throughout to still give the board its trim and planing ability you hull riders are addicted to.
This board was inspired by some vee bottom boards done by Russell during the late 60’s. Transitional shapes usually ridden with long raked out flex fins they are all about trim and rail to rail movement. Proven to be most popular by our friends who love riding displament hulls yet get frustrated when the waves arnt quite right for their favorite hull. We have found these offer a similar feeling and experience yet plane through flat sections easier and tend to not bog out. The megaphan can also handle some steeper beach break peaks and even some little barrels if you’re game. Standard size range is 6'8" - 7'4".
The buck knife is one of our more popular mid-lengths. It bridges the gap between your log and shortboard or fish. Usually ridden in the 6’6 to 7’6 range, the buck knife paddles well and trims out in small waves yet can still handle a serious section if you can. Low rocker and a complex bottom contour gives the BK its magical feeling , its able to be surfed off the tail and tends to be more user friendly than a displacement hull. Good entry mid-length.
This is a new nose rider model for us, squash nose and squash tail give it a fresh look and feel. Still has a rolled bottom and classic 50-50 rails you’re used to but has an inviting block up front to hang those toes off of. Recommended to be ridden with our flex nose stringer. Standard size range is 9'0" - 9'11".
The 51-50 is another traditional nose rider we make. Designed for slower softer waves like San Onofre, the 51/50 has the widest nose out of any of our logs. Really stable and a wave catching machine. Rolled bottom and pinched rails give it that classic feel you're used to, and lots of real estate up front to set up shop on the nose. Standard size range is 9'0" - 9'11".
The Tranquilizer is our pig style nose rider. A good log option for a beach break, the wide point is pulled back giving it some hips. The flip of rocker out of the tail gives The Tranquilizer its easy pivot off the take off to set up for a long ride on the nose. The board has a rolled bottom and 50/50 rails. The Tranquilizer features our flex nose stringer, a 1” cedar stringer in the tail that tapers and stops about 24 inches before the nose. The unique stringer does a few things, it allows the board to have a bit more natural rocker while surfing it off the tail and when you run up and park on the nose, the board flattens out and trims. The stringer also lets the board twist while you are on the nose, keeping the rail engaged and in the pocket while the fin stays planted. Get up on the nose and set up camp! Standard size range is 9'0" - 9'11".
This is our big tanker. Its like walking on a sidewalk. Knee paddle with ease and catch anything that moves. Park up on the nose and have lunch. A great San Onofre board and any soft, cruisy wave. Standard size range is 9'0" - 9'11".

The Kimchi is a simmons inspired performance board. Ridden narrower, thinner and longer than a traditional mini simmons, the kimchi provides a more high performance ride when other style boards can leave much to be desired.

After having so much success and good feed back from our Rocket fish the RBZ was born. A few modifications were made, wider nose and narrower tail give it more of tear drop effect as well as a more radical bottom contour. We’ve had great feedback as a quad or as a tri fin bonzer. Standard size range is 5'0" - 5'6".
The ultra-high performance fish! Designed and perfected at Lower Trestles the switchblade can do it all, airs, turns, and barrels.

Low rocker and wider nose gives it speed down the line, as well as a ton of paddle power. Standard size range is 6'6" - 7'0".
The rocket fish is a new modern fish we’ve been working on and we are pretty happy with the results.

this is it, the magic marker is that go to high performance board to jump on even when the waves aren’t the best.

Standard size range is 6'6" - 7'0".
