High Performance Shortboard Surfboard
Our High Performance Shortboard surfboard is a “new school” shortboard surfboard. The outline offers a fuller and curvier template with its centre mark sitting slightly higher than standard. This board has a deeper single concave to maximise performance and a slightly flatter rocker to increase speed over those weak sections. There is also added volume under the chest. This board harps back to where shortboard performance surfboards originated with good paddle power and is a solid go to for most conditions.

The High Performance Shortboard Surfboard from Wild Atlantic Surfboard Company is a “new school” shortboard surfboard. The outline offers a fuller and curvier template with its centre mark sitting slightly higher than standard. This board has a deeper single concave to maximise performance and a slightly flatter rocker to increase speed over those weak sections.
In the design to accommodate new schools of thought there is a looser tail for slides. We also moved the fin cluster slightly further forward to accommodate the wider tail section whilst still maintaining that tight in the pocket manoeuvrability. Great for Irish punchy beach breaks and beyond. Plenty of float where you need it, plenty of impact and speed when you want it – a true wildling.
This surfboard can be seen as a high performance groveller or lower rocker line board too but ultimately it is a great all-round high-performance board and suits the new school style of surfing. It is ideal as a competition surfboard, capable of managing most conditions but also for airs and new school in general. It can also be ridden as a high-performance groveler for the bigger surfer and for those looking to really maximise or get into pocket surfing and improve their rail work.
Our high performance shortboard surfboard comes with a single concave and a thruster set-up as standard. A quiver must, set in PU for waves with punch so you can stay with the power of the wave and perform. This surfboard will improve your surfing. Choose 2-3 inches shorter than your regular surfboard. Fully customisable with tints and sprays.

Wild Atlantic Surfboard Construction
The Base Construction (a polyurethane blank with polyester resin) is still considered the most versatile and all-round performance specific construction used the world over by touring surf professionals. Our shapers use only premium materials when working on Wild Atlantic Surfboards and those materials are used to produce top-quality boards; US Blanks at the core in blue foam and Hexcel Glass for the laminate bonded with Silmar resin for best balance between weight, performance and durability. Each of our surfboard shapers lines are designed especially for surfing in Ireland and the Atlantic. They are tried and tested in some of the wildest and perfect surf you will find in any hemisphere. That said our boards will stand up across the world as high-performance adaptable quality surfboards. Each shaper on our lines contributed their individual twists and interpretations to provide the best surfboard possible for our conditions.
Wild Atlantic Surfboards are finished in 24/7 heat-controlled environments to ensure curing times are at optimum levels to reach a finish unrivalled in Europe. Our boards are sanded and finished to give a long-lasting new effect and are packed in eco-friendly flex hex reusable packaging. The average time for a custom surfboard order after discussions with our shaping team is 30 days after signing off on custom dimensions and deposits received. Custom surfboards are not refundable and once orders have been placed and due to the nature of customisation they cannot be refunded. We respect our shapers and the craft of surfboard shaping. Stock dimensions have been planned for best use with tried and tested reasoning on dimensions and volume, but we accept custom orders and you will find our shaping team more than happy to discuss making a board for your specific needs. If a surfboard dimension chosen is in stock, we will ship the board to you within 3-5 working days.
