Designed as the board to turn to for the very big waves.


Clear selection


THE GUN is a board for those seriously big waves.

The design is based on Gav’s knowledge & experience over the last 10 years working with big wave riders.

THE GUN has a foiled out tail, giving more hold and drive. As the bigger waves provide all the power, the single to double concave has been toned down. Gav also included in this design additional foam under the chest area for ease when paddling into and getting down the face of those seriously big waves.

    I sat down with Gav and placed a custom order for a 7.6 Gun. Every time I get a board off Gav and Nikki (1-DA) it reignites my passion and froth for surfing again. It’s so much fun in small waves and it goes off in anything overhead. Just a sick board. Nailed it again so stoked absolute legends.

    My first big surprise was the hidden volume in my 7′ 6” GUN model. My 5′ 10”s for example are around 25L (I’m only 62kg). My 7′ 6” is 35L! And to be fair, it looks like quite a refined weapon, and my friends comment the same kind of thing also. Having 35L on a bigger wave board is amazing for me. It allows the board to get enough momentum when paddling to catch some solid waves. I’ve surfed it at solid Sunset Beach in Hawaii, and also some really solid days at a big wave spot at home in Taranaki. Performance-wise it’s certainly easy enough to turn for a 7′ 6”, carries good speed, ploughs through bumpy stuff nicely, and it has withstood some heavy beatings and big sets on the head. Very happy with it, and look forward to getting a couple more 1-DA GUNS in the future to add to the quiver. Gavin made my last Hawaii quiver, and I’m confident on his equipment at home and abroad.
