Triplane Asymmetrical


Asymmetry is something that I’ve dabbled in ever since I started shaping and is something that has constantly kept me open minded to new ideas, as the concept can be applied to literally any type of surfboard. I first would like to credit those that hugely inspired me with pursuing this particular design; Ryan Lovelace and Ryan Burch. I would sincerely urge you to get in touch with one of them about ordering a board before me, as their take on asymmetry has inspired me to the moon and back and led me directions regarding design that I never could have dreamed of. But if you’d like my version of a high performance asymmetrical board, you’ve come to the right place!

I would consider the Triplane Asymmetrical to be the most high performance board in my line of models, as for me personally it has replaced the spot in my quiver that a standard high performance thruster once filled. The toe side of the board is longer, straighter, and tuned to accomodate the control and leverage you naturally obtain on that side of your foot. The heel side of the board is a bit shorter, curvier, and tuned to accommodate the lack of leverage and lack of balance you obtain on that side of your foot. In a nut shell - the toe side is designed to be skatey, fast, and nimble to get you going light-speed down the line, and the heel side is designed to be forgiving, easy to control, and come around smooth and quick on carves due to the extra curve in the outline and shorter rail. The bottom contour has single concave from nose to tail, which lies between a triplane bevel designed to raise the rail line of the board, making the it roll onto rail with ease and essentially turn like a board that’s much narrower than it actually is. Both sides of the board work in conjunction with each other to provide an equal amount of function when going either left or right, as my asymmetric boards are designed for your stance, and not for a specific direction.

Size the Triplane Asym anywhere from 2”- 4” shorter than your standard shortboard, and anywhere from 1/8” to 3/4” wider depending on your personal preferences. For instance, I’m 6’3” and I ride a 5’10” x 19 1/4” Triplane Asym.
