If you need something to rely on, think Mothership. It will carry you through heavy seas. Strictly reserved for solid waves, this high volume thruster offers a lot of drive and big shot maneuver-qualities.
The original idea was to obtain a user-friendly, extremely easy to paddle and early to take off shape that would work well in bigger stuff. So more volume, lower rockers, control on the wall – without compromising agility and reactiveness. It took us some time to get our head around on how to achieve this. Eventually the idea was to simply blend classic single fin properties with modern day thruster ideas. Low rockers and untypically deep concaves reunite drive and agility. A shortboardish foiled down outline with an ultra-chunky pin tail provides control in the pocket and release off the top. The whole thing is definitely more than a shortboard. But maybe the last board you want to take out into critical surf before using a true shortboard. Who knows? You should try it for yourself. It is the Mothership, it will be there for you.
Take this board out when looking at solid to heavy forecasts. It loves reputed Euro breaks on a heavy day, Indonesia, the open Atlantic rock piles and Maldives when at their best – just make sure there is some punch in these waves.
Use this shape on good days to use the full power of the waves.
