Triocean Surf King 5’9″ Shortboard
The Triocean King is a shortboard developed by ourselves and Matt Adams to fill a gap: where else will you find a high quality, hand-shaped and affordable shortboard?
The King is designed to excel in the type of surf we see year round in the UK thanks to its extra width and thickness. This means it’s buoyant whilst having a relatively low nose and tail rocker to catch those slacker waves. However there is still enough nose rocker and tail lift to use this board in overhead surf.
Underneath the King has a single concave on the nose to give you good planing speed and a double tail concave to keep it loose and responsive.
An honest review from our Triocean test pilot:
“I’ve surfed my King in waves from 1-5 feet now and am loving it! I’m riding it at 5’11″ x 19″ so is around my normal shortboard size. It catches waves really well and accelerates quickly; the single to double is perfect as it maintains really good speed through turns which is important in our waves. The volume is distributed well and it feels really balanced and responsive in the water. The quality of Matt Adams’ finish is excellent and I have been surfing mine with a set of standard M5 fins! I originally got this board just to test for the shop but have surfed nothing else since; get yourself one!!”
