MANDALA ARC SWALLOWTAIL QUADS CUSTOM ORDER MANDALA ARC SWALLOWTAIL QUADS CUSTOM ORDER

Using the Arctail Quad design as a base platform for the ASQ, we’ve removed surface area from the tail to provide release through turns while allowing each tail element to flex for dynamic “variable rocker.” These boards become more responsive in hollower surf, where the deep swallowtails store and release energy in the same way good fin foils flex and twist. Access to speed becomes easy and immediate, and surfing them as short as possible reduces swing weight for faster response off the top.

MANDALA THE DARK CRYSTAL CUSTOM ORDER MANDALA THE DARK CRYSTAL CUSTOM ORDER

Hands down, the fastest board I make. Single concave to deep swallowtail, nose to tail tucked-under edge, and small 3” side fins add up to an insanely fun ride. Full rail bottom turns, boardslide off-the-tops, and reversals turn average mushy days into all-time epic sessions. A micro-wave amplifier.The design ethos is simple: free your mind and your ass will follow.

MANDALA SUPERCHUNK ASQ CUSTOM ORDER MANDALA SUPERCHUNK ASQ CUSTOM ORDER

The short and wide cousin to the Arc-Swallowtail Quad (ASQ), the Superchunk ASQ is the latest addition to the Mandala bucket of hammers. It shares all of the proven design elements as the ASQ, but with a different approach to removing surface area from the tail to provide flex and release. The smaller triangular swallowtail of the Superchunk contains the same area as the isoceles triangle of the Arc-Swallowtail, giving both boards similar flavors off the tail. Since this design is shorter and wider than the ASQ, the fins are marked further back, with the shallower swallowtail allowing you to place your feet directly over the fin cluster.Available with classic glass-on marine-ply quads or tri-fins or with the removable 5-box FCS system for various fin combinations and experimentation …..sweet as a nut.
My personal favorite for waves chest high and under, these boards work best when built ultralight and surfed as short as possible

MANDALA ARCTAIL QUADS CUSTOM ORDER MANDALA ARCTAIL QUADS CUSTOM ORDER

The curve from the wide point to the tail is very close to the outline curve of a fish, which gives the board the similar drive and acceleration off the bottom. While this classic fish curve gives the board plenty of drive, the rail-line rocker breaks before the center-line rocker, loosening up an outline which would otherwise want to draw a longer drawn-out line. The round arctail feels at home in the pocket and responsive in hollower waves, providing the best of both worlds—the drive of a fish with the elliptical turning radius of a round tail.

MANDALA CLANDESTINO PINTAIL TPH CUSTOM ORDER MANDALA CLANDESTINO PINTAIL TPH CUSTOM ORDER

The Clandestino is a tribute to the speed shapes of the transition era and the beginnings of high-performance surfing. The sweet spot finds focus over the wide-point behind center fulcrum, where rocker through the vee panel begins to accelerate as the template pulls in to the pintail. The bottom flows from hull entry to tri-plane hull, with each side panel blending into vee. A parabolic double-concave within the vee panel begins at the wide point and deepens as it directs water flow towards the tail. The rail-line rocker goes from high to low, with progressive edge in close harmony with the concaves. Expect insane trim speed, extended perception of time on the high-line, and cutbacks so hard you’ll make sound effects.Special thanks to Joel Tudor for lighting a fire under my ass to bring this board into the world.

MANDALA PINTAIL STUBBIE QUAD CUSTOM ORDER MANDALA PINTAIL STUBBIE QUAD CUSTOM ORDER

This template draws its genetic heritage from the gene pool of my longer hulls while adding new DNA from the Stubbie Quad family. The drawn out template naturally holds a long clean line, with the single to spiral-vee concave and quad fin set-up letting you drive hard off the rail in bigger surf. Consider this board to be the big brother to the Stubbie Quad, a step-up for when your favorite wave finally gets a decent swell and you need some extra muscle to scratch into a big one. The fuller nose area preserves functional surface area for fast paddling, while keeping the template short and sweet. Truncating the nose reduces swing weight, keeping the board lively and responsive. The wide-point forward teardrop entry coupled with a pulled-in pintail keeps water following the path of least resistance. Combine that with the AK4 quad set-up and you’ll be taking off deep with confidence that you’ll make the section with more than enough speed to burn.
