One-off Predn Tàs (‘Daddy’ in Cornish) mini mal.
Width: 21 1/2"
Longboard fin + 2 side fin boxes
Predn board #33, the Tàs, is a wave-catching machine. As such, it’s perfect for beginner to intermediate surfers on small, calmer days, but also a great tool for big fickle waves. Thanks to its length, it’s a smooth paddler, latching onto waves nice and early. It’s surprisingly light for its size! This Tàs is a charmer with its pink rails and wood grain radiating neatly outwards from the centre of the deck.
Predn is our trademark construction, the one that best encapsulates our three pillars of performance, sustainability and accessibility. The super thin marine ply veneer on the deck adds incredible toughness, practically eradicating compression dings, as well as a beautiful wooden aesthetic, each board having its own unique grain. The fin boxes are reinforced with flax cloth, an all-natural material with similar properties to carbon fibre. Even with the reinforcements, the Predn construction remains light, responsive and totally shreddable.
All our constructions use an expanded polystyrene (EPS) core. Unlike traditional polyurethane (PU), this doesn’t degrade or yellow with UV exposure, neither does it take on water if the skin gets damaged. We glass our boards with bio epoxy resin, which is less harmful than traditional resins. We hand-make our leash plugs using Cornish applewood and a brass pin, which ages beautifully without losing its integrity. All our boards are hand-shaped with love and pride in our wind-powered workshop in Cornwall.
