How’s this piece of functional artistry!
A fusion of the innovative Yater Spoon from the ’60s and Mike Davis’ original Noosa Log, the Promethium model from Little Cove Surfboards is about as polished as it comes for a tuned old-skool single-fin.
And some collab is Little Cove Surfboards. Steered by forever Noosa surfer and equipment zealot Reid Johnson and featuring shapers Mike, Phil Myers and Wayne Deane with lifetime guru glasser Peter Mo, the label is about top-end production and performance.
The hand-shaped Promethium is a long-time project between Reid and Mike - and you’ve really got to google Mike to get the gist of what he’s done and who he’s worked with in the industry since he was a grom at Rincon and cut his teeth with Rennie Yater in the ’60s. An inductee into the International Surfboard Builders Hall of Fame in the US in 2016, he’s been polishing his log shapes on Noosa’s points since the ’70s.
And seriously, Reid is over the moon about how this model performs . . . and in case you’re wondering, informs us that “promethium” is a radiating, unstable rare earth element and a primary component of rocket fuel, named for the Greek God Prometheus - a champion of humankind who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to us mere mortals.
And we’re going to play God and give this 9’6” x 23 1/2” x 3” Promethium to one of you mortals before next issue.
