The Monkey Wing model is a Simmons-inspired planing hull. Short, wide, and fast! This model really flies! The Monkey Wing is designed to extract the maximum amount of fun from even the most gutless surf. Very low entry rocker coupled with a wide outline and shovel nose make for easy paddling and instant speed on take-off. The bottom is given a slight vee transitioning to a single then a double concave out the back. The double concave in the tail compresses water and pushes that energy into the big twin keels generating lots of drive. The Monkey Wing has extremely good projection out of bottom turns and the Locus designed keels hold all that speed through turns.
It is part of the Ventana Locus Surfboards Eco Collection, a collaboration to create high performance, eco-responsible, foam-based surfboards. This model uses a Marko Foam 25% Recycled EPS blank that is also 100% recyclable.
The stringer and twin keel fins are made by Ventana of old growth redwood floorboards milled in the late 1800s, and reclaimed spruce, Honduras mahogany and Indian rosewood offcuts from the Santa Cruz Guitar Company. The tail block is made of old growth, reclaimed redwood from a porch.
Like all Ventana boards, this one is glassed with Entropy Bio Resin, a very strong and lightweight epoxy made with a high tree sap content. The top deck uses a sheet of 6-ounce fiberglass plus a sheet of 4-ounce; the bottom uses a single 6-ounce sheet. The leash plug is made of Honduras mahogany guitar neck offcuts.
The board was made in Santa Cruz, California and is a collaboration between innovative shaper Tyler Hopkins of Locus Surfboards and master craftsman Martijn Stiphout of Ventana.
Dimensions: 5'4" x 21" x 2.625"
