Gerry Lopez Long Haul Longboard Surfboard
Nothing feels better than to ride the nose on a long section hanging ten or even getting a cheater five up there. Any longboarder worth their salt needs to one of these moves in their repertoire and the Long Haul / Fusion-Poly makes it easier. The wide, full nose template gives one plenty of planing surface and room to stand up there comfortably. The square tail works as a release point allowing the board to pivot for quicker turns but you will be riding the other end of the Long Haul most of the time.

About Fusion Poly Tech:
The Squirty / Fusion-Poly is a balance between paddling and maneuverability, the Yin and Yang of surfboard design. Can’t do much surfing if you’re not catching the waves. But, at the same time, you still want to rip when you are up and riding. Low entry rocker with a slightly rolled bottom going into a single concave and finishing to a double concave with a user friendly tail lift, makes the Squirty loose and fast.
About Gerry Lopez Surfboards:
Words by Gerry Lopez: “There is a determination to raise the skill level and improve their surfing game that is all consuming and slowly for most, although sometimes quickly for a few, the ability to ride that surfboard continues to rise…to a point. And in this, I believe it was no different back in the beginning than it is today. That surfer, through observation of other, more skillful surfers or perhaps just self-reflection, starts to see that his own surfing has reached a point beyond which it cannot progress…unless he has a more progressive surfboard than what he is currently riding. Some surfers constantly analyze their equipment, thinking of how their surfboard will improve their surfing and working with shapers to do just that. All surfers do this in some degree but many simply rely upon their surfboard builder and trust them to produce the means to the end that really never is ending but simply draws one deeper into their surfing experience. In simple terms, a surfer gets a surfboard, learns to ride it and his skills get better, to a point…to go beyond that point, he needs a better surfboard”.
