The Fever in the words of Patrick Gudauskas:


“Overview: The Fever was born from a desire for an all-around performance board based on elements I love, Speed, Drive, and Flair. My Goal in designing this board with Mike Andrews and Channel Islands was to create a surfboard that I could surf in almost any conditions and have a hell of a good time on it. I wanted a more accessible Tour Performance board that anyone who jumped onto it would instantly feel the speed and zest for creativity.

Conditions: I like to surf my Fever in anything from 2-3 foot softer California style beach break and point break waves, to 6ft+ World Tour style waves, like Snapper, J Bay, Bells, Lowers, Haleiwa, and Backdoor. I prefer to ride it just above my groveler/small wave board, and all the way until I need a step-up or round tail surfboard. “

Got this board as well 2 months ago, i must say from the very surf I loved it ! But I found that it needs a 2 foot + and shape to really light up unless you have a pretty good level that enable you to really get speed off small waves, anything above it s so good and turn on a dime – I m just waiting for my Cab Sav to complete my little quiver !

Marcos De Souza says:
