Having worked alongside some of the most renowned shapers in the world throughout his surfing life, Josh Constable humbly views his career evolution as a shaper as “a kaleidoscope of all his experiences.” His surfboards have become pieces of art, inspired by traditional templates, but with a modern surfer in mind.
“Growing up and living in Noosa gives you an amazing opportunity to ride a wide variety of boards, and a great platform for R&D,” explains Constable. “Everything I make I surf, and the focus is high quality, functional boards, with fashion forward aesthetics in full tint and pigment color ways".
The Huevo, in SLX construction, is a classic hybrid surfboard that incorporates the best of both the shortboard and longboard. It’s round nose and fuller tail gives plenty of floatation and makes paddling a breeze. With its shorter length and 2 + 1 fin set up makes for fast responsive turns and manoeuvrability.
OUTLINE: Its fuller outline with the wide point slightly forward of centre means you can trim and glide forward on the board, adds to the great paddle power and to the stability and flow, while its round tail makes for smoother transitions between turns.
ROCKER: With emphasis on being an all rounder it has a low to medium rocker, this is why you will find this board paddles with ease and flows through those dead sections with minimal effort. A slight lift in the nose makes those late take offs easier and the slight lift in the tail makes for nice drive through your turns.
CONTOURS: A nice classic slight rolled Vee from nose to tail makes it effortless for those rail to rail transitions, while the stance is anywhere on the board, however getting back over the fins the board will turn on a dime.
PERFORMANCE: Think summer grovely beach breaks when you don’t want a Longboard or it’s too small for your Shortboard or winter reefs and perfect points. This board can handle anything from waist to double overhead and any ability from beginner to advance. Enjoy

Check out these real-life scenarios: You feel under volumed and the struggle of paddling is real. You catch the wave but the surfboard so unstable you can't get to your feet. Your home break is weak and small most of the time. You are a big human that can still surf really well but there's not a surfboard out there that has enough foam/volume for you. If you are relating to any of these scenarios then the Jumbo Jet is here to get you fully stoked.
The Jumbo Jet has a 2 + 1 fin set up that turns easily thanks to the smooth lines of the round tail. Complimented by a tucked edge in the tail and modern rocker the Jumbo Jet accommodates the surfer that wants to go down the line, hit the section, and move the board where ever it needs to go.
Throw in a little nose concave to help create lift for those heavier surfers allowing them to nose ride like a champ. The Jumbo Jet goes well in all conditions from small crappy beach breaks to beautiful points and steeper more challenging waves.
The shorter versions of the Jumbo Jet (7'2 and 8’0) will work a treat, they’re like the 'big guys' shortboard. These boards are for anyone that needs a little bit of help increasing their wave count. The extra volume allows you to paddle with ease, get in early, and give you more time to get to your feet. I'm so stoked on this board it's got my Dad back in the water in his Mid 60's after 10 years out due to injuries and it has got him frothing. Hope you get the same stoke.Specifications

The Jive+ is derived from the original performance based Jive model. It’s still a sleek-lined trimming machine, and by all accounts should be considered a responsive longboard. With the updated additions we’ve taken many of the original Jive features and added a tad more volume for broader usability.
OUTLINE: The sleek outline has a slightly pulled in tail for better drive and acceleration from the taken off, and tighter arching turns on the face. The slightly straighter outline forward of centre increases the width up front to create that speed and long nose riding capabilities.
ROCKER: With an emphasis on being an “All Rounder”, the Jive+ has a medium rocker with a flat panel through the mid section. This makes the board paddle with ease and flow through those dead sections with minimal effort. A slight lift in the nose makes late take-offs easier and also helps with extended nose riding. The slight increase in tail curve gives opportunity for tighter arcs when jamming harder off your back foot.
CONTOURS: Subtle yet effective, the slight concave in the nose creates lift while hanging those toes over. Its flatter midsection creates speed and trim stability, and the subtle rolled vee through the back half makes for silky smooth rail-to-rail transitions.
PERFORMANCE: An ‘All-Rounder’ that’s very user friendly and accomodating to a range of demographics. The Jive+ paddles amazing, trims with a bunch of speed, and will turn whenever and wherever you want it to go. With its improvements in the front half, we’ve made it really enjoyable to ride up front, yet still super responsive when banking a nice turn. From flat to double overhead, this is one of the funnest longboards your ever ride. Enjoy!
Comes with a 2 + 1 fin setup with custom CA single fin template. Simply add side bites to enhance control and manoeuvrability.
