Based off the compact design platform of the revolutionary high performance oriented Mr. Buzz model that Nathan Fletcher and Stretch have brought to fruition, the Super Buzz fills that gap of grovel machine and performance board in waves that don’t necessarily conjure up more than just a disappointed sigh.
Aimed to be a full on “stokemonger”, the Super Buzz features the same deep single to double concaves as Mr. Buzz yet in a much more user-friendly rocker and outline for sub-standard and weak waves where a fish or longboard would normally be your only other option. Think of it as kind of a detuned version of Mr. Buzz.
Similar to Mr. Buzz, Super Buzz utilizes bottom contours and curves that allow it to be extremely hydrodynamically efficient. It can be ridden at or near the same volume as your normal daily driver shortboard. As a dedicated grovel board it can be ordered with slightly more volume.
Compared to Mr. Buzz, the outline features a slightly narrower tail block and can be ordered in either a quad or 5-fin set up. Slightly more nose rocker and less tail rocker give this board more ease of use and versatility in a wider range of conditions from the knee high to head high range.
Works insane as a quad but with the narrower tail block it will even work as a tri. Comes default as a 5-fin convertible option for all you restless souls who can’t decide!
Wide tails need big fins. Tail width is well over 16 ¼”-16 ½” on dims for an average size surfer. You can run fins similar in area to a twin fin up front. Run it with full size 4.25”-4.5” rear fins depending on conditions and your personal style and preference. Check out a nubster for an enhanced feel as a quad.
Extremely full nose and tail with straighter rail lines allow you to go short like Mr. Buzz. The tail block however is about 3/8”-1/2” narrower than what you’d see in Mr. Buzz to add curve and allows you to flat turn and redirect without having to lean hard into the rail. It also helps to reduce surface area to accommodate a 5-fin configuration. It will work better as a tri fin than Mr. Buzz. You can even try it as a nubster set up!
Obviously less than Mr. Buzz and allows for extremely easy paddling yet will still go vertical and pull G-force turns at speed without drifting or washing out the tail. Compared to Mr. Buzz, it has about 3/8” extra nose rocker and ¼” less tail rocker. Almost our A rocker with a flip of B rocker out the tail.
These aren’t “pluggy” rails but the foil and deck contours feature all the right foam in all the right places and carries a flatter deck to push some foam outwards from the center. The front end is a bit thinner than Mr. Buzz and supports a “fuller” rear end to allow you to get way back and control the board off the tail at lower speeds and in less powerful conditions. Compared to any other “groveler” you’d think these rails are a bit sleeker for sure.
Yep. Same as Mr. Buzz. The exception being that the single concave is a bit more prevalent in the front end to stabilize under the front foot. That same single concave still straightens the centerline rocker and transitions to ¼” deep double concaves through the fins for lift, easy rail-to-rail transitions and neutralized weight positioning over the center of the board.
