Surfboard Focus: 8’0″ Pieces of Eight
28 . 06 . 13
This past month it has finally felt as though Summer has arrived here in the south west of the UK – on some days at least! And when we get a high pressure parked over us, with clear, windless, blue skies and small waves, one of the surfboards on the demo rack here at the Otter workshop that barely has a chance to drip-dry between surfs is the Pieces of Eight. Another one of our great all-rounders, at 8’0″ x 21 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ the Pieces of Eight is more longboard than mini-mal whilst retaining the manoeuvrability of a shorter surfboard. With the neutral buoyancy of wood it is also easier to duck-dive so that paddling back out for your next wave is a much faster operation. When the waves look small or you’re out to enjoy a few waves with friends as the sun dips into the sea at the end of the day, the Pieces of Eight is the board that you want to be reaching for – effortless surfing and pre-programmed for fun.
