This surfboard was made specially for Parlementia’s wave, characterized by being fat and slow; a wave with amplitude, so this hull is made for big take off and long bottom turn.

This Hull Gun for Parlamentia speaks for itself and Tristan Mausse describes his creation like this:

“I have strectchened the outline, and made it narrower, 21 3/4 wide, the wide point is located on the middle of the surfboard, it's also the point where the belly vee on the bottom softly stop and change to a flat bottom shape, the belly vee is then pretty deep on the front part of the surfboard. With 3 3/4 thick the low rails are soft and thick, but softly tappered to get a pinchee entry. The rocker is a bit more pronounced on the nose and the tail get a little kick, but the middle part of the surfboard's rocker get flat and moderated for a maximum glide. the Wedge stringer is supposed to give more weight on the nose and help to "fall" in the wave easily, and to keep the nose stable.”

The final objetive of this hull is to “keep that deep bottom connection to the surface with the belly and to keep the special smooth feeling of a hull on that big wide wave.”

The Secret is Behind the Details

THE FIN | We will let Tristan Mausse to tell the story of the fin himself:

“The fin is a test and I designed it with the help of my good friend Jean Penninck during a late night at the factory, for that special board we got inspired between the Tom Blake's skeg or the Pat Curren's gun fins but with a touch of "Greenough" and a bit of Wayne Lynch's keel fin. The 6 1/2 inches deep will hold enough that super narrow tail and drag less water on the take off, but we add a super wide base to lock the board during the turns. The first 2 inches of the fin is flex but quickly become wide so might stay away from vibrations. The front part of the fin is thick and round. Heavy glass job of course.”

· DISPLACEMENT HULLS · 

We really wanted to offer you Displacement Hull designs by Fantastic Acid and the one you see here is one of the several you can take home.
However, let’s elaborate a bit more since we could say tons about these beauties.

The Displacement Hull design is a bottom (belly or convex) contour and planing surface design that can offer a very organic, flow and speedy feeling when riding the wave.
However, in order to offer that kind of feeling, we should gift the design with the right riding style and wave conditions.

· RIDIND A DISPLACEMENT HULL ·

The Displacement Hull, instead of planing up on top of the water like a regular flat or concave bottom contour, it plows through and parting the water.
Yes; The faster you go, the higher the speed, a displacement hull’s tail will sink down lower due to the “hole” created in the water as you move forward on the board.
So, the more displacement, the more control you have in the water but you need to keep an eye on the speed so you don’t end up like feeling inside a submarine, meaning, under water. It’s all about balance.

So, how do you ride it? It is a bit tricky, but once you get the hand of the adjustment, it is really rewarding. Instead of leaning back on the tail, you surf off the front foot burying the rail and letting it go.

Although new displacement hull designs will perform in a varied range of waves, they can also offer a great day of surfing in smaller surf. Why? Because surfing through the water takes less effort and energy than planning on top of the water.


The feeling you get on a displacement hull is more organic. You are more involved. You become one with the elements.
