This short and widened swallow tail surfboard would do anything I would ask it 2. Infact the board was so good it honestly felt a part of me, it felt like home and it felt amazing!!! Ask any surfer and they will surely tell you that magic boards only come along every blue moon!!! I am here to testify to that but……With Ed Sinnot shaping “Sea Hawks” I can get that same beautiful board time and time again!!
“The Sea Hawk” is the board that never ceases to dazzle and amaze me, from 2 foot to 10 foot I havent found a board I love this much!
Availiable as a five fin plug setup, ask for advice if needed and from there you will have a board like no other!!

BEAU YOUNG SURFBOARDS — MODEL : SAN DIEGO 1966 — DESCRIPTION :
For me 1966 was the most pivitol period in surfing and in surfing’s evolution ever, and I know many of you surely will agree. Up until this time surfboards had been Large, cumbersome and difficult to manouver. My father with his two great friends George Greenough and Bob McTavish would alter the way surfboards were to be ridden forever!!” Quickly ushering in the shortboard evolution. My relationship with my father is one story (I love him dearly) but the other completely unbiased opinion I hold separately from that is the way my father has always surfed!! Nat’s surfing in the 1966 World Championships in San Diego is by far the very best longboard surfing I have ever seen!! Hanging ten in the pocket followed by giant cranking cutbacks in the critical part of the wave. My father affectionately named his San Diego surfboard “Sam”, The “1966 San Diego” is so closely related to Sam your could call it his son! We have been given the green light from my father to make 100 numbered surfboards, meticulously finished to the finest detail and numbered individually!
May I introduce the ” Nat 1966 San Diego”.With a rolled bottom for smooth turns, gloss polish finish, tinted resin, large 11″¼’ centre fin to my fathers specifications, wide point behind centre and an outline that looks pretty much like Nat’s original board in all specifications. This board would have to be considered “The Deluxe” of all the longboards in our range!! Be one of the few to take a step back in time on a piece of equipment that showcased the very finest of longboard surfing that in my opinion can and will never be seen again!!!
BOARD DETAILS The San Diego 1966 is length 9’6, width 23¼, thickness 3, noise 18, tail 16
FIN SETUP: Single fin box

ROGER HINDS SURFBOARDS —– MODELE : THE BANDIT —— DESCRIPTION :
The Bandit was an original template from 1972 which would have been a twin fin. At that time I was using the Guidance Fin System, the fins that you push in and pop back to put the holding clip in place. I decided to bring this back in late summer 2017. I found that this design, coupled with modern rails and a modern rocker in the original outline, works well with all fin configurations and will accommodate bigger surfers on a shorter board.
SIZE RANGE: 5’4″ TO 8’0″
AVG DIMS @ 5′ 10″:
Nose: 17 1/2″
Width: 21″
Tail: 17 1/2″
Thickness: 2 5/8″
FIN SETUP: Single, Twin, 3 Fin, & 5 Fin

BEAU YOUNG SURFBOARDS —- MODEL : RH — DESCRIPTION :
Don’t get me wrong I love every era of surfing. From the very earliest of wave riding pioneers in Polynesian through to the current acrobatic world tour surfers all of surfings history is fantastic.
There is a special period in surfing for me however, right before the advent of the short surfboard that I find amazingly beautiful.
With my fathers blessing we have molded the best aspects of Nat’s boards from the period between 1963 – 1966. A truly beautiful board. The RH has a rolled bottom for smooth turns and transitions, 50/50 rails that are only slightly knifey for sharper turns (a more rounded 50/50 rail like this keeps the boards momentum and trim), a big 10.5? fin with Nat Young/Bob Mctavish/ George Greenough inspired flex and rake for projection out of your turns and a beautiful understated tint finish rounds out a gorgeous board that has been critically adjusted and changed to suit only the best aspects of boards during this period. With a keen eye for the finished product as a son it sure was nice to have Nats approval!
BOARD DETAILS
The RH is available in lengths 9’1 » to 9’6 » (larger available contact for price)
An example of the boards measurement ratios for a 9’6 » are:
length 9’6, width 23¼, thickness 3, noise 18, tail 16
FIN SETUP: Single fin box

BEAU YOUNG SURFBOARDS —- MODEL : PENDULUM SWING —- DESCRIPTION :
The Pendulum is quite simply an amazing allround longboard. Of all the longboards in the range the Pendulum has the greatest amount of versatility.
This board boasts a nice wide nose for either learning to nose ride or alternatively if you are already spending time on the nose this board will enable you to noseride like never before.
Refined rails enable precision turning for a board that is basically modeled from 1960’s equipment. This board is old style cool with modern flair and trimmings. Slight nose concave for greater hold and stability while nose riding in the pocket, a continuous curve in the outside rail template stops the board from catching its rail at any point during a turn. The foam is nicely thinned out through both tail and nose for turns, noserides and trimming with a medium foam thickness through the central part of this board to make catching waves simple. A board for a surfer of any ability….The Pendulum is what we like to call “The Great Allrounder” in our longboard range.
Beau feels this board works perfectly in waves sized from 1′ – 5′ waves.
BOARD DETAILS
The Pendulum Swing 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 2 ¾, noise 18 ¼, tail 15
FIN SETUP: Single fin box
