1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Fabiano had to say about his new HYPO: “Our baby was born 7 months ago and as a result I became 5 kg heavier and a little unfit. I found myself struggling to catch waves specially at the points due to currents and crowds. Also for years I've been observing guys with "fish type" boards getting more than their fair share in those conditions.
I was very specific with this order. I wanted paddle power more than anything. Something flat, wider and packing several litres more than my standard boards but hopefully still able to perform. The initial idea was riding this board only on mid size swells at crowded points.
After talking to Gav for a bit we decided on the Hypo model, with some subtle changes.
When I picked it up, to my surprise, it felt way more refined, like "sharper" than I imagined it would be.
To put in a few words, since I picked it up in February, I haven't touched any other surfboard. From small days at my local banks to pumping dbah and straddie it goes amazingly well and I'm yet to surf a good day at the points.
It's easy to surf it. The paddle power is addictive. Catching more waves, getting in early, the extra speed and flow, the surprisingly good performance when put on rail, how good it is in the barrel... it all adds up to a much more fun surf on most conditions.
It may not be as wiggly and whippy as a standard high performance shape but the overall fun factor cannot matched by any other board I've ever had.
If someone is after super paddle power, overall performance and fun on 2 - 5ft+ surf, this should be the number one option.” 1-DA SHAPES

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Mandy had to say about her new CUB: “Superdupa happy with my first custom PU CUB; 5’ 7” x 18 1/2” x 2 1/8, 23.37L. I’ve had it for 3 months now. I can paddle into waves early, it’s fast, easy to turn and duck dive. 1-DA Shapes were able sort out a custom Inlayz that looks super sick. Gav nailed it with shaping a board for my height, weight and ability. My surfing is progressing so much quicker now. Thank you so much Gav and Nikki at 1-DA Shapes.” THE CUB hides foam in all the right places so groms can push their surfing ability to their limit with confidence. Available online.

1-DA Shapes Surfboards are also available in Taranaki through Chip and the gang at @beachstreetnz

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Harry had to say about his new ELITE: “I recently took my ELITE 5'10 to Bali and couldn't fault the board in anyway! Super drivey off the bottom but released well off the top which is a hard combo to get in a board. 
I am super heavy on my boards and generally snap my boards through my back foot, Gav used heavy duty carbon on my tail and this worked a charm! 
Cant wait for my next ELITE!
Cheers!" 1-DA SHAPES

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Derek had to say about his new CHEATER in the 1-DA Exclusive Epoxy technology: “I heard about Gavin on the "Surf Mastery" Podcast and then I did a bit of research of my own and there was a lot of positive feedback around his shaping. I was looking to get a couple of new boards so I got in touch with him via email. We arranged a time to chat on the phone so he could get a feel for where my surfing was at and what would be the best fit. My kids love the surf, especially the small summer days, so I wanted a board that would perform in small, knee to waist high, conditions. Gav tuned in on what I needed and he suggested a custom Cheater. I am stoked with the result. Super easy to pick up small waves, rides through mushy sections, plenty of pop and speed from the 1-DA Exclusive Epoxy construction and at 5'7" it's perfect for small waves manoeuvres. This board has quickly become a favourite as it means I can have still fun in trying conditions without resorting to a longboard. The customer service from Gav and Nikki was next level, they are great to deal with and they went the extra mile on every aspect. Thanks 1-DA team!” In Taranak (NZ)?
