Bada BIng Bada Boom

The QR Code is a small wave HP Shortboard pushing limits based on a perfect line and fitness. The shape frothes on: everything smooth, everything with maximum speed.

Quirin Rohleder’s original design asks for constant work along the perfect line, especially when surfing semi-natural rapids such as the Eisbach. If you are looking for forgiving shapes, choose differently. The QR Code gives you the most radical maneuvers with ease and controls powerful artificial rapids such as Unit or Citywave perfectly. On those waves the QR Code also works for the intermediates and makes it easy for them to learn radical and powerful turns.

In the ocean, this design has great capacities to tear out the bags of any small pocket and leave you surprised of how much drive can be generated in mediocre surf. … given you are in good shape and know how to push a performance shortboard. 

Use this shape in any artificial rapid and on Euro beaches all year round. Definitely a step down when heading out for Indonesian waters or into long-period swell destinations.
