Two years ago sitting on the beach and watching his friends (former QS Grinder) Harry Mann demolish a small onshore wave in Victoria, Mark Phipps started to scratch his head. How did he do that? He sat with him and inspected the board like it was a t-bone steak ready to barbecue. Harry told Mark "Mate it's like cheating riding this board! i can do anything I want." So Mark who isn't getting any younger despite his surfing addiction which is getting stronger started to develop the Cheeta, after all who doesn't need to cheat in surfing. He found the magical rocker, he found the volume he needed for his aching arms, and he found the performance he wanted. This board isn't a hybrid, this board is meant to give you confidence to do the best turns of your life, it's just like cheating.

PU construction by Euroglass. The “P” gets its name from both the resin and the foam: polyester resin and the “U” comes from polyurethane foam . PU is the traditional surfboard construction since foam core surfboards were invented. It is still the most widely used construction method today. PU is often incorrectly referred to as “fiberglass” construction – the reason this is incorrect is because the same exact fiberglass cloth is used in both PU and Epoxy construction types, it’s the foam core and resin that soaks into the fiberglass cloth (and foam) that differ. While PU construction is generally slightly heavier and isn’t quite as strong as Epoxy construction, it tends to have a more reliable and predictable feeling whilst surfing. This is due primarily to a slower flex pattern and denser foam than epoxy construction, which basically causes less “surprises” and more predictability while surfing, especially when making hard or sharp turns. PU construction tends to be more naturally conducive to color work, especially translucent resin tints. PU is also a bit less sensitive to water infiltration and heat than epoxy construction.
