We really have giveaway 79 top-end longboards to our magazine subscribers and how about number 80!
The Guerrero comes from 9’2” to 10’2”, and some Australian subscriber is going to own one by next issue!
Lennox Head’s Eden Saul spends six months each year on the Gold Coast and the other six shaping and surfing with a talented crew in California. The Guerrero was designed with CJ Nelson - with the outline a nod to some of Eden’s late ’60s Australian favourites.
“I wanted to bring a fresh approach to what CJ has been riding, and the Guerrero is something fresh and exciting I think. We added some extra lift up front giving a clean and consistent curve for hold on the nose, and it’s stable and fast in forward trim.
“The plan-shape is carrying width just behind centre for a nice hip, there’s a pretty serious amount of concave through the front third blending into the belly, and the rails are noticeably a little lower, more a 60/40 running into a panelled V section through to the fin for a dash of edge for control, direct drive under foot, and a little flair.”
