Another Pilsner please! The first one went down so well we’re going again. For the second issue in a row our subscriber board giveaway is a Pilsner model.
Andrew Warhurst been making surfboards full-time for over 20 years, and he builds all his Fine Surfcraft boards start to finish under the one roof at his factory in Noosa - and it’s all about top-end production and attention to detail.
From 9'1" to 10’0", this model is the highest seller in the Fine Surfcraft range, and like all of Andy’s "logs" it’s inspired by the 1966-67 involvement era, with the wide point back from the centre, foiled out rails and Greenough-inspired fin.
The Pilsner is user friendly and designed to cover all bases. It still has that pig style outline but not as extreme, and it will hold a line when the waves start getting into that shoulder-high range. Add the upturned rail for easy rail-to-rail transitions and this is the go-to longboard in the quiver: it noserides in those tricky parts and at the same time it can really bank a turn.
And another *PLB subscriber is going to win a Pilsner by next issue! *Australian residents only
NEW PLB ISSUE > NO 107 will be in the mail to all international and Australian subscribers next Wednesday.
