The original spade was shaped in the late months of 1968 by Geoff McCoy. A transitional era surfboard that was built right in the middle of the evolution of the short board. We’ve named it ‘The Spade’ due to the popular spade deck inlay that was found on many of the original boards being made in 68/69.
We have recently started reproducing this design and have been stoked with the results. The only thing we had to do was remove some of the thickness and tone down the rolled bottom and that has resulted in an easy to ride mid-length capable of surfing a multitude of waves.
