Gerry Lopez Little Darlin (Fusion Hyper-Drive)

A board so easy to ride it will feel like you are cheating. The Little Darlin evolved out of Gerry Lopez's prevalent Cheater Model. In the search for more performance, Gerry slimmed down the design. The narrow width makes makes the board snappy and responsive without losing paddle power. A single to double concave gives the Little Darlin' speed and hold when the surf gets big. The Little Darlin' is a sweet, quick, easy-riding board that can take it to powerful waves with confidence. You can trust the Little Darlin will catch any wave while still handling late takeoffs, steep drops, and fast-hollow sections. Surftech's exclusive Fusion HD technology adds to the board's response.

Gerry Lopez grew up in the extraordinary place that was Hawaii in the 1950s and 1960s. He played a part in the shortboard revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He experienced the awe, fear and ultimate satisfaction of finding the tube in the early days at the Pipeline. He traveled for surf throughout the world: to the original surf camp at G-Land, the exotic islands off Sumatra and especially to the magic island of Bali, Indonesia- before it became a popular surf destination. He experienced the beginnings of windsurfing on Maui, the early years of snowboarding and tow-in surfing at Jaws.

Fast forward to today and Gerry is shaping some truly unique boards that keeps his surfing journey moving forward. This collection of boards represents the quiver that he takes around the world to surf the ultimate breaks.
