This board was handmade in California by Matt Biolos himself!!
This board is in well-used condition. It is watertight but has various pressures on the deck underside. It has had a few minor repairs but all have been professionally repaired.
This would be epic for a grommet transitioning into a shortboard!
Comes with tail pad and leggie string.
All around competition shortboard. During 2009, as the F1 became a board of choice for many team riders, the low-end limitations of the design were becoming apparent. Looking to make the F1 excel in smaller gutless surf, we widened and slightly lowered the rocker in the nose for forward glide (but kept the tail rocker the same). We increased rail volume and straightened the outline via a hip making the tail wider in front of the fins and at the tail block – adding drive, lift and tight radius pivot, but keeps the same width at 12” for control. Coco Ho won back to back WQS events in Brazil on her magic F1 Stub this fall. Young Aussie Phenom, J.W., used an F1 Stub to make 3 WQS finals in a row and secure a late season push for 2011 WT qualification. Fine tuning and intensive RnD with top pros during 2010 has netted an F1 Stub that is a contest proven, quintessential, modern, everyday performance surfboard.
This board has a carbon tail patch.
