THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Markie is our shaper from home. A hard charging Cornish surfer with board building in his DNA, he heads up the iconic Cord Surfboards. This is Markie testing out one of his shapes
It got us thinking about the notion of home and what it means for those facing the prospect of winter without somewhere to go.
That’s why this year, as with last year, through the LS/FF x Cord surfboard prizedraw, we’re raising essential funds in support of Centrepoint – a charity that helps young people who are facing homelessness.
Win this hand shaped twin fin fish: The Flying Vee.
“Great in waves up to 6 foot, “The Flying Vee” has a wider plan shape and flatter rocker meaning its a great paddler and has great acceleration and drive from the flatness through the wide swallow tail,” explains Markie.
“This thing will get you going super fast down the line with little effort and its impeccable rail to rail game comes thanks to its deep Spiral Vee between the Twin boxes inspiring the boards name. This means better turns for you in critical sections and better cutting back on flatter sections.”
