The Shop Next Door - Chris Christenson "Dead Sled"

Alex Dick-Read

A collaboration between The Shop Next Door and Brett Caller. Brett was sent some surfboards from The Shop Next Door which he then went and rode. This was his first surf on a Chris Christenson log at a local point break.

This particular Christenson shape is called the “Dead Sled” which is a perfect log for both beach and point breaks. The “Dead Sled” is an ideal all around log because of the parallel outline and the rolled vee in the tail for easy rail to rail transition on the wave. With this shape the 50/50 rails are slightly pinched throughout the board and the generous concave in the nose also enhance the perfect amount of lift whilst poised on the nose. All the while the boards reverse rocker will help continue forward trim but it will still stay buried in the curl for major tip time.
