Asher and Matt’s next evolution of a fish.

The Concept

With the bottom contours of a performance shortboard, and a more refined rail, the Lightbender combines the best of both worlds. A flat fast rocker, combined with a balance of pivot and drive makes the lightbender a versatile board that's approachable from a performance and alternative perspective.


The design concepts used in the Lightbender have taken on many forms. With each iteration, there are both familiar and unfamilair aspects. All of which are functional in their own respective way.

For anyone looking to dive deeper.

Rocker Profile

Flatter rocker underneath the chest for easy wave-catching with slightly more entry and exit rocker than a standard fish. Holds better in steep surf, while taking the speed/flow of a fish and mixing it with a more aggressive approach. 

Deck Profile

Foam packed under the chest, easing into a modern rail and carried forward to a beak nose. Strong paddler that easily gets up to speed while continuing momentum and flow throughout the wave. 

Bottom Contour

Single concave under the front foot, transitioning into a slight double through the fins and vee off the tail, otherwise known as a spiral vee. The modern bottom generates speed, helps the board roll rail to rail and drive off your back foot.
