There may be a design feature that is proving popular but sticking with our company creed it must be something hydrodynamicaly sound before we’ll even look at creating our own version or even blending it into one of our existing designs.
Enter the modern shaping machine with its computational capabilities and both board builder and customer alike have ready access to another very handy dimension, the accurate measurement of volume. Once a surfer has an idea of their ideal volume in litres and selected the length and width of their preferred design it's a simple matter for the machine to cut a pre-shape at the required thickness to achieve the desired floatation. Be aware though that this new volume measurement isn't magic, it's not the be all and end all but should be treated as nothing more than another helpful tool aimed at getting the surfer on the most suitable equipment.

The Water Pistols story technically began with a 12year old Stuey hand drawing his first template and transferring those curves to a rough, old blank. The ensuing 45years have seen a hell of a lot of boards built, countless waves, adventures, advances, the odd setback far outweighed by a myriad of golden moments and perhaps more importantly the crossing of paths and influential contributions of some amazing unique and talented individuals.
