01 Deep concave and snub nose with straight rails for effortless nose riding
02 Wide point moved back in between your feet for quick response
03 Concave tail outline for hold and speed
04 Side cut in front half of board takes away material where you don’t need it and shortens the effective rail in the water which result in smaller wet surface = more speed and agility.
05 Deep double concaves for drive and acceleration
06 High-performance rails
07 Accelerating tail rocker allows you to go vertical
“In terms of design, this third generation of the Meyerhoffer XYZ is minimalist because everything is stripped back to pure functionality, creating a wonderful aesthetic. The back area is shaped around an egg template. This allows a tighter turning arc. The waist is what particularly makes it feel unique; the purpose here is to reduce volume where you don’t need it. This also makes the board easier to paddle, as the arms do not need to be extended as much as on a regular board.
This shortboard-in-a-longboard design cuts through the nonsense that the short and long of surfing will never meet. Meyerhoffer’s genius has produced a marriage of the best in board shapes. If longboards are politicians, the XYZ is a left-winger, doing things for the good of the people, for the good of surfing. It’s fun, it’s different. I love it.”Sam Bleakley Pro Longboarder and Travel Writer
