THE DX1 IS A MODEL THAT HAS EVOLVED THROUGHOUT THE PAST 15 YEARS AND HAS BECOME A GO TO SHORTBOARD FOR A NUMBER OF THE WORLDS BEST.
The original file began with Parko and was ridden in numerous contests and free surfing clips. Fast forward to 2015 and after a few adjustments to the file the DX1 was crowned #1 by Julian Wilson in the "Stab In the Dark" project.
After It’s success in "Stab In The Dark" the board soon became a team favourite, especially for Jack Freestone which after feedback and a few more alterations became the JF DX1.
Glassing — Stock Lite (4 x 4 x 3/4) + Tiger claws, which improves strength and flex.
Rocker — Medium to Flat Rocker
Concave — Slight Single Concave
Carbon — White Carbon Innegra Toe Patches
Tail — Wider Squash
Fins — Thruster, 3 Fin in Futures or FCS II
The PHASE 3 has been a year in the works and is back to being a top favourite amongst the DHD team.
This model has a little extra width through the nose and tail which has added a touch more volume through the chest.
To keep the boards performance DH has kept the rails low especially through the tail of the board. This along with a fairly straight rail outline give the board endless speed and drive.
A slightly lowered rocker gives this board plenty of up and go speed, this has allowed DH to tone down it’s single concave which helps free the board up through turns, especially when the waves are a little softer.
Whether you’re grinding it out on the QS or looking for an everyday shortboard to take you to the next level, you’ll find space in the quiver for a DX1 PHASE 3.
