BEAU YOUNG SURFBOARDS —- MODEL : CLOUDWALKER —- DESCRIPTION :
When it comes to Longboarding I think and have always been told by my elders that the most important thing in a board is trim!
In the 1960’s boards were big and flat and moved fast through the water, they carried momentum and could always tap into the oceans smallest of wave energy sources! The Cloudwalker is the fastest longboard I have ever ridden. I had been searching for a board with the correct bottom shape for years.
Many times when touring through Italy and France in the summertime they often get tiny waves. I always felt as though there must be the perfect board for waves between 2 inches high and up to 2 feet. It was during these many overseas trips that I constantly searched for the ideal small wave bottom curve in a longboard. Enter the “Cloudwalker”, which is amazing in tiny surf conditions!!! I had found the ultimate small wave log for the way I wanted to surf in the most minuscule of conditions.
Any tiny ripple can be ridden on the cloudwalker. A nice round rail board with a fair amount of volume that tapers just right in both the nose and tail areas. This board has a bottom template found over many many years of trial and error. Flat out speed in tiny conditions, the board turns on a ten cent piece due to a flip in the last 4 inches of the tail and noserides remarkably with a nice even concave under the front quarter, this is one gorgeous small wave log.
Medium weight with a single fin box and old school competition band, the “Cloudwalker” is a real gem.
BOARD DETAILS
The Cloudwalker is available in lengths 9’1 » to 9’6 » (larger available contact for price)
An example of the boards measurement ratios for a 9’4 » are:
length 9’4 », width 22 ¾, thickness 3, noise 17 ¼, tail 14
FIN SETUP: Single fin box

BEAU YOUNG SURFBOARDS — MODEL : CHEETAH — DESCRIPTION :
Known as the fastest animal on land it was obvious this small wave surfboard needed to be named the “Cheetah”.
The Cheetah should be ridden a couple of inches shorter in length than a regular board. This surfcraft is wider through the nose tail and wide point and ideal in generating speed in the most lackluster of wave conditions. The Cheetah has a single to double concave enabling quickly gravitated speed and looseness in turns.
Not to be considered a re hash of 1970’s retro craft this board is a modern speed machine. Versatile in the fin configurations that this board allows in an understatement! With five fin plugs this board can be configured as a quad, thruster or a twin with a stabilizer. If you want an extremely fun little board that will work in the poorest of conditions incredibly then The Cheetah is the board for you!
Availiable in sizes from 5’2” – 6’8”

ROGER HINDS SURFBOARDS —- MODEL : NOMAD —- DESCRIPTION :
The Nomad was the brain child of the Assassin. In 1992, there were not a lot of big guy shortboards available. If you take the Assassin, pull in the tail 1 inch and blow it out to 7’6″, it becomes the Nomad. It has a shortboard high performance rocker. It rides fast and loose, catches waves like a longboard and turns like a shortboard. The Nomad puts the fun back in surfing. Larger planning surface & thinner foiling create a more responsive & versatile board. The shortboard alternative for the longboard rider.
SIZE RANGE: 6’3″ to 9’6″
AVG DIMS @ 8’0″:
Nose: 14 3/4″
Width: 21 1/2″
Tail: 14 3/4″
Thickness: 2 7/8″
FIN SETUP: 5 FIN BOX

BEAU YOUNG SURFBOARDS —- MODEL : 72 EVOLUTION —- DESCRIPTION :
There have now been many evolutionary periods in surfing. This early to mid 1970’s period produced alot of very different boards compared to what had been made previously. Experimental times there is no doubt!
Music at this time was going through its Psychedelic experimentation phase with Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane and many others pushing the musical boundaries. Surfing was also all about change and growth and understanding theory of water displacement and why. Ted Spencer, My father Nat, Bob Mctavish, George Greenough, Russel Hughes etc… were all at the forefront of an amazing growth period in surfboard design development. I am very honored to have my fathers blessing in creating a model of board similar to what was being ridden during this amazing period of surf history.
The “Nat Young 72′ Evolution” Is a midlength single fin (with optional side fins if required) with its wide point forward and a soft edge through the tail. A subtle vee bottom shape and rounded nose this board is not for everyone. The 72′ is a classic board that turns like a very small singlefin longboard! Your feet need to sit a little farther forward than normal when turning the board and the “Nat 72 Evolution” is the closest thing you will find to feeling your way across a waves canvas like they did in the early to mid 1970’s period. Personally I love the feel of these boards, my motto has always been that variety is the spice of a surfing life, so if you want something that is a ton of fun, a little bit different and a board that will take some dedication to master, try my Dads replica from this early 70’s period.
BOARD DETAILS :
The 72 Evolution is available in lengths 6’6 » up to 7’8 »
An example of the boards measurement ratios for a 7’4″ are:
length 7’4 », width 21 ½, thickness 2 ¾, noise 16 ¾, tail 15 ½
FIN SETUP: Single fin box or single fin box plus sides
