The Displacement Hull, or “DH”, is an often overlooked shape. I have been shaping hulls from the start of my career, and love the speed and versatility they provide.
The DH provides a whole new way to enjoy the average waves you have on offer. Adding a little bit of shortboard DNA at the tail makes this design work extremely well on a wide variety of waves and conditions. It has low rocker, rolled bottom, and a performance tail with double concave and hard release edges.
This provides speed and turning in waves that have some open face, and it absolutely flies on long high-tide walls. Nothing compares to the feeling of sinking a bottom turn on the DH and then flying up the face in a long arcing top-turn. Step back on the tail to carve a tight radius turn when the wave allows.
Consider the DH as an alternative to your egg or longboard, and put a whole new kind of smile on your face.
Typical size goes from 6’6 to 8’0. Customized for your ability, waves and surfing preferences. Fins can be versatile because of the tail with double concave. Single, 2+1, bonzer, or even quads work really well.
