Modelling as a semi-step-up/all-rounder in the new "Lotus Series".
The Blue Lotus came about via a repeat customer wanting to transfer the magic of his original Lotus into a longer, stretched-out version. The idea was to use the board during the bigger days on our G.C / Northern NSW point breaks, where there's a lot of water moving, and paddle power is crucial for getting in the spot to catch that gem.
Keeping most of the original Lotus's characteristics as a base, I increased the length and added a nice rounded pintail for hold. Also, creating a longer outline curve. The entry and exit rocker have been lifted to fit into a steeper, suckier wave face, and the chimed rails are slightly lowered for engagement in quality surf.
After a lot of testing, we have made an effortless board to surf with heaps of paddle power. Maintain the same lively performance as the original Lotus, with a more drawn-out approach and hold in larger surf. Perfect as your next travel board or for your daily surfing endeavours
