The Fat Cat was designed purely to make small waves fun again. 

The board is best described as short, wide and thick, and is based on the theory of a "planing hull" using a Mini Simmons style template. This means you can get exceptional down the line speed off the weakest of sections making it idea for Summer time conditions.

Best thing about the Fat Cat - As its not a traditional shape, it makes you surf differently  to as you would on a regular shortboard. We find that this makes it hard to take yourself too seriously when riding a Fat Cat, so whether your surfing good or bad, we guarantee it'll be the board you have the most fun on. 

On top of that - its just super versatile, so its suitable for a variety of different wave types.

How's it Ride?

The thing that makes the Fat Cat special is how unique it is.

The large single concave, combined with thickness and width means its planes easily, and accellerates quickly even in weaker or sloppy waves.

As far as turns go, while you can put it on rail, the small keel fins make it perfect for moves such as tail slides & spins when the waves don't allow for a more top to bottom style of surfing.

Ideal Wave Conditions

Well, we never thought we'd see the day we'd tell you a 4'8" softboard could be the most versatile in your quiver.

The Fat Cat was originally designed for small, weak, junky waves so its fun to surf in those.

More recently, this shape now seems to be our team riders go-to board for slabby waves, whether its perfect 4 foot peaks, or a 2 foot close-out shoreys. Putting your foot on the inside peg of the crescent tail gives plenty of hold when required, while the shorter length allows it to easily fit in the curve of smaller hollower waves.

Ideal wave though? In a perfect world we'd be spinning and sliding the Fat Cat across some Long, slow point breaks.
