Hinds Renaissance

Experience the best of the past with the top design elements of the present, experience “the Renaissance.” “Renaissance” is a French word for “rebirth”, or a new interest in something that has not been popular for a long time.

The Renaissance model revisits and revives the top longboard plan shape from the 1960’s; the height of the longboard era, and combines it with modern rocker, rail, and foil design elements to bring it into the present. The modern pulled down rail allows for smooth and easy rail to rail transitions. The advanced fine foil increases the speed and the glide which makes for fast clean surfing.

“He won the icons of foam shape-off back to back in 2014 & 2015 at the boardroom show first honoring Ben Aipa then Rusty Preisendorfer.”

His attention to detail has lead to some of the most popular plugs for Clark Foam and US Blanks. He won of The Icons of Foam shape-off back to back in 2014 & 2015 at The Boardroom Show first honoring Ben Aipa then Rusty Preisendorfer. He came in second at the Ultimate Craftsman Project at the same show losing by only one tenth of a point. That same detail is reflected in start to finish shape, glass, color and polish of impeccable quality. Roger Hinds lives the art of surfboard construction. – Randy Rarick
