For the 1965 world contest in Peru, George Downing made Paul two boards, a big wave board and a small wave board for the competition. Paul came in 3rd in the big wave event and first in the small wave event. The board shown in the above photo was the small wave board, and the inspiration behind the PS '65, a collaborative effort between Paul Strauch and Roger Hinds. The original Downing classic shape has been kept in tact as a classic small wave long board and modernized in the bottom rocker, nose, tail and rails allowing for effortless turns and maximum tip time.

The new Malolo Flyer Model, translated from Hawaiian meaning “Flying Fish,” and known to quickly accelerate and literally lift off and fly with the use of large dorsal fins, is the basis for the inspiration and collaboration with Roger regarding the design elements comprising the narrow nose, rocker, and wide tail section incorporating extremely sharp, right angle rails. Extremely easy to change direction, trim, nose ride, and increase personal confidence and enjoyment. - Aloha, Paul Strauch, Jr.

This surfboard was the model for the Ultimate Craftsman Project and was inspired by a 1967 Skip Frye shape. I wanted it to be really pinched all the way through the board, something different than any board you'd come across in a surf shop. The base model comes with a single stringer but can be custom ordered with special wood glue ups, pinlines, deck patches, and more.

This is a perfectly constructed 1966-1967 noserider. With three stringers, a custom tailblock and unparalleled 50/50 rails, this masterpiece sings with style and defines the exact classic and genuine longboard that's been cruising San-O and Malibu for decades.

The Glider is not your grandfather's longboard. This board was designed to provide the rider with that old school feel and glide while providing a shorter turning radius off the tail to push the limits of progressive modern day longboarding. Whether cross stepping your way to the nose and trimming your way down the line at your favorite point or floating sections at the local beach break The Glider can take your surfing where you want it to go.
