Ian Fox - About the Severne Fox board 2018

“Without limits or convention, we set out to build our own ideal board for everyday blasting. Making the most of the real world rough so many of us spend so much time enjoying. A versatile, rangy board; a modern take on some classic concepts, without too much concession to fashion. Dominated by exaggerated forward V, concaves and beveled rails, the Fox splits chop mercilessly while retaining comfort and critical directional reactivity at high speed. Play it rough. Unlike the harsh, locked in ride of flatter bottom profiles, at high speeds the Fox slices through chop under high power with sniper like accuracy. Maintaining length delivers longitudinal stability, critical for rough water security and confidence; unprecedented downwind blasting over chop is enhanced by a generous diamond nose area. If the action stops, both features also help get you through lulls (or back home) easier. Continuous rocker ensures smooth entry under the mast track area which minimises pitching, essential for power-on style sailing over broken water and allowing real overpower ability to extend practical range well beyond normal size limits. Slam hard into those corners, that gybe is bombproof. About as sweet as freeride gets. Modest tail kick provides hidden turbo boost when you need that extra top gear and allows the board to be trimmed out easily at speed over rough water. Moderate width and thinned tail section provide control, while careful deck profiling and contour pads provide all day comfort under the harshest freeride conditions. Maximum attack.

And built to take it .Evolved in the harshest chop of Port Phillip Bay, West AUS, Maui and New Caledonia, this soon became the favourite tool in the box. The board we really wanted to ride more often. Strange enough our friends did too. Speed is nothing without control.”
