Interesting one here, from Empire’s own description.. ‘The Lumus is hyper drive fast, generating speed from nowhere.
With a bonzers precise control and dive it will carve big arcing turns with no loss of speed. It flies in the mush, planing over the flat sections but still feels positive and comfortable in hollow powerful surf. You can really commit, lean on it hard and push though the turns as the rail and fins take the load and keep biting, turning all of that energy into speed and distance. The Lumus really excels at fast, powerful, carving surfing across a wide range of conditions. it feels responsive but not twitchy and i find that lines that it draws perfectly suited to my style of surfing. If i had just one board in my quiver this would be it’
6’2 Russ short model Bonzer 3 fin, Joe asked for this board to be an exact replica of what Malcolm would have shaped him 30 years ago. It is beautiful.
If you wanna cruise and carve smooth lines down a long point break this is the board, you ain’t gonna be getting fins free, but you will feel like you are in ‘morning of the earth’
I don’t know why but recently i’ve been growing more interested in longer length boards, i don’t throw tail, or do air reverse’s (by choice rather than lack of skill of coarse) and this ones begging for clean lines and the odd cheater five, the simple pleasures.
This board is indescribably sick, if you are wondering how the bonzer fin system works and you normally surf a shortboard, get on this board!
It is built for power surfing, which is the kind of surfing Morocco’s waves deserve, long walls to bury your rail into.
check out Taylor riding this exact shape in mexico, on a point which isn’t dissimilar to the points we have a stone’s throw from us.
This beautiful bonzer is built for speed in point breaks and should rip the slop to shreds!
It is built for Anchor point!
retro in appearance but not in performance!
7’0 pin tail semi gun, When the waves are huge and you need some serious paddling power and speed this board will let you do it. I’ve seen Killer point and Anchors at the sort of size where this board becomes necessary!
