Lost Black Dart Quiver Killer surfboard 5ft 11 FCS II - Blue
The Quiver Killer is a re-working, or if you like an extension of the recently released ShortRound surfboard. Many had been enjoying the ShortRound and it rapidly became clear that this short, relatively low rocker board was the perfect weapon for fast fun in smaller surf, but it did have some limitations.
Matt spent some time in Bali this summer and began getting requests for custom "round tail" ShortRounds. It was locals and some of the travelling surfers who loved the board but wanted a board more suited to the regular Indonesian conditions.
After building a few of these round tail ShortRounds Matt inevitably began fine-tuning the original, and it was at this point he realized it would be unfair to keep calling this the same name, so the Quiver Killer was born. Starting with the ShortRound, a couple of inches was added to the length, the overall rocker was increased, the nose was tucked in a bit and then the tail was changed to a forgiving "thumb" tail without any drastic changes to the width at the front fins. The overall effect is a pleasing, minimalistic continuous curve. The volume and surface area is still generous enough to feel lively and fast in all but the smallest or true "grovel" conditions.
The rounded tail, narrower nose and increased rocker prevents too much rail being submerged at one time in small surf, and allows proper pocket surfing in decent solid waves.
BlackDart shortboards are constructed with a virgin 1.5lb, stringerless eps blank with a deck completely wrapped in a unique woven Carbon/S-Glass hybrid "BlackDart" material.
This BlackDart fabric is unique in the fact that the carbon fibres run "uni-directionally", in other words running from nose to tail of the board with the S-glass fibres running rail-to-rail. This layup creates a more natural flex pattern different to the associated stiffness of bi-directional carbon fibre cloth and even less prone to creasing or snapping. BlackDart surfboards still have that electric, "alive" feel with that signature return when you really engage your back foot. The carbon/S-glass wraps right around the rails and is backed up by 4oz cloth which is doubled up giving a durable 8oz covering to the bottom.
Should you ding your BlackDart surfboard, don't worry too much, It's easily repaired with any standard Epoxy/Solar Epoxy repair kit.
Tech aside, this fabric takes colour beautifully, supporting a wide range of pigments and tints which contrast with the carbon resulting in a stunning looking quiver.
