Wayne Rich WIldcard 3 Flax Fiber-9'4"


$ 1,235.00

Turn a losing hand into a winning hand with the Wildcard. The Special Projects Division Wildcard 3 is an updated version of Waynes Rich’s classic shape. Still a great nose rider and proficient turner, the board maintains many of the attributes that helped Wayne win three consecutive Malibu Club contests, including a full template with a wide nose and wide crescent tail. The crescent tail, initially hand drawn by Joel Tudor, allows water to flow over and out the center of the board’s tail, pushing the tail down and creating lift in the board’s nose. Slight updates to the board's nose concave also assist in noseriding. The board can be broken down into three planes. One in the front for noseriding, one in the middle for trim, and the last plane near the tail for turning. The Wildcard features a rolled bottom, that mellows in the back third of the board. The rolled bottom increases control and turn initiation. If you are looking for a longboard to make you surf more and better the Wildcard 3 is for you. The Wildcard is a true tip-to-tail classic style longboard that allows for a traditional approach to wave riding.

Natural Fiber Technology (NFT) is not only made with natural composite reinforcements but it got an amazing natural feel. Half of the reinforcement by volume on these boards is made from naturally derived fibers. The other half is composed of E glass and the whole lot is layered up and vacuum bagged under pressure to maximize the bond and minimize any excess resin, allowing for an incredible strength-to-weight ratio. The natural fiber not only replaces a good chunk of what would otherwise be fiberglass but also improves dampening for a predictable, natural response. There is an elegance to the simple aesthetic to the layup that is matched only by its ride.
