The prize:

RICHES RF - 5'8 x 20 3/8 x 2 1/2 with Deep Navy tint deck and bottom, gloss polished finish all over and glass on keels. RRP $1450AUD

 Highly functional, tried tested and well refined.  The Riches RF is my go-to for most days.  From Californian summer slop to well overhead East Coast points, these are built to be surfed hard and really come to life in good waves.  Low rails and low rocker, a clean foil tip to tip and some complex bottom contours, there’s plenty going on but all combined is a hell of a lot of fun.  Fast and drivey, release when you need it, tight in the pocket and good carry through the flats.  Best from 4’10 - 6’0.

 

NAUSEA - 9'6 x 23 x 3 with Sky Blue tint deck and bottom. RRP $1940AUD

All-round winner.  This is our tried and tested favourite in the range.  Heavy late 60’s Australian influence, tucked in nose, hips just behind center, even/consistent rocker tip to tip and pinched out foiled rail.  Narrow concave running through the front third, the Nausea has been my go to for a long time. Refined and balanced these work for the experienced surfer or this just getting into longboards.  Comfortable in tight hollow point waves and short beachies, loves to be surfed from all over the board. Loose and driving off the tail, fast through the middle and holds tight on the nose. Can be ridden from 9’0-10’2.
