OG M/SF/T family JAKE VINCENT’s signature model, the Yandina Speedway is Queensland engine culture and hellman spirit all packaged into one muscly beast of a surfboard. For those who desire to surf like Vin; animated, untamed, progressive, and unpredictable look no further than the Yandina Speedway. The model bears a lot of similarities to Vin’s previous chariots of choice, with a similar wide nose and tail that draw the rail line out, making it more parallel to create maximum speed + drive. Lismore levels of speed + lift are also derived from a quad channel bottom which projects water out the tail. The tail also harnesses another previously proven element, the domed swallow, which in short, promotes speed and release, while maintaining control, especially in a reversed position. Most of this board’s big Vin energy is in its deck and rails. The deck is fully flat, in fact it goes beyond into a subtle concave, which creates a more sensitive surfing feel; as one’s feet are almost closer to the water and fi n area. Toward the tail this then moves into a slight double concave for comfort and grip while shuvving and revving. This is all finished off with chimed rails to propel water off the deck and create shapely rails that penetrate the wall of the wave without biting. The last element, which is oh so important, is the 13 hand-drawn decals by the iconic Australian punk artist BEN BROWN that are guaranteed to make this board un-noticeable to none. As one can see she is wild beyond belief, but on a technical level this board is the evolution and next generation of the MK/ DD series, which has been years of design and research in planning hulls, channels, parallel outlines, water displacement and timeless surfboard design.
