The Renegade Model

Technical performance shortboard

The Renegade model was designed for big fin hacks, wafts and technical airs. Featuring a lower entry and flatter mid section with medium tail rocker and hyper-extended rail line through the fins. These aspects, together with a straighter mid-section outline, subtle hip and a deeper, re-positioned concave apex, create a board that combines maximum front foot drive with explosive tail release. These features create a board with speed and drive, which is very responsive. The Renegade is a very versatile board that surfs great in beach break, reefs and points.
This model was first developed and tested with QS rider Thomas Woods. Usually a design is conceived and then tested to incorporate changes until it is perfected- this takes some time and a few versions. However, this one came together quickly from first design which was great as I have incorporated some very different elements and new approaches in The Renegade. Thomas and I sat down and talked about the ideal board when he got back from Hawaii then I designed this in a moment of inspiration. We surfed together and he was exploding all over the waves, just ripping. I called it the Renegade as it rebelled against some of my usual design principles but came out great. Since then numerous other pro’s have given it the thumbs up and it has become a favourite for high performance technical surfing.  The Renegade model is also a great choice as an all round board for accomplished groms who rip.
