Kevin Holt is from Shellharbour on the South Coast of NSW and is one of Australias top longboarders. He is a fitness freak and surfaholic and rides a wide variety of different crafts. He provides invaluable feedback on all of my longboard and retro models which goes into refining and improving upon these designs. Kevins main competition longboard is a 9’1 EPS mal. This is a performance mal with added nose and tail rocker, thin tail and concave nose hull, with light double concaves to panel vee off the back. It is designed with a smooth, continuous and curvy outline and a distinctly narrower tail to make it a highly versatile and all round performance board.
“The 9’1 EPS mal is turning tricks for me at the moment. The rocker is really good in transition to the nose and turns on a dime off the tail. Super light yet glassed heavier than a normal PU mal for durability. The Glide noserider rocker is ideal for the small stuff and Gx Mal for the points. The PT2 is killing it in the junky stuff and the HeavyHitter shortboard for the ledgy reefs at home. I love the CabSav for the really tiny days”
