"Your SUNDAY Twin Fin Single"

Leave it to Rob Machado to design a surfboard for sleepy Sunday morning sessions. After all, there’s no one in the water as cruisey as Rob. The Sunday twin fin/single is exactly what it sounds like—a Sunday Funday shortboard that can be ridden as a twin fin or a single fin, and that goes easy like a Sunday morning. 

The Sunday is meant to be ridden with a few extra liters, and you can even size it way up if you feel like having an ultra cruise session. Rob rides both a 5'6" and a 7'0", depending on if he feels like shredding or trimming. The single fin option gives you the opportunity to flow through clean turns that are linked together with ease, while the twin-fin boxes give you the chance to liven things up a bit when you feel like getting radical. Combined with the Helium2 construction, this design gives you that Cadillac feeling whether you are boosting airs or high-lining toward the shoulder. 

Depending on your size and ability, you can order the Sunday in lengths ranging from 5'6" (31.2 liters) to 7'3" (56.7 liters). Grab one and be ready for nonstop weekend fun with the family.

Helium Technology Surfboards

A look inside: The Seaside built in Helium Tech – an ultralight EPS foam core with flex controlled in the rail from nose to tail; a blend of paulownia and balsa wood. Aerospace composite deckskins make you feel like you’re creating footwells in the deck, but it often looks new even after a month of surfing.

Ridden by everyone from Kellly Slater and Stuey Kennedy and Pacha Light. It’s our lightest surfboard ever, shaped from a 0.8 pound EPS faom blank with flex controlled at the rails similar to Timbertek. 

When describing Helium compared to LFT in his Gamma shape, Kelly Slater says “On a typical day to day, especially in beach breaks, I would be on this.

Kelly Slater waxes his Helium Gamma. He prefers it in beach breaks more than the LFT Gamma to the right that he likes in point breaks.

When we released Helium for the first time in 2017 we were most excited by its weight and flex characteristics.

But since then surfers everywhere have come to love Helium for reasons different than what we expected, most notably its durability. 

#RippersWithoutStickers love Helium for it’s weight, flex and durability. Ryan Clancey at Trestles.

We’ve heard many surfers remark that the deck of their Helium shape often looks new even after a month of surfing because of what we’ve come to call ‘memory’ in Helium’s deckskin – it can rebound to form after being compressed beneath your feet. 

A favorite among Rippers Without Stickers – Brent Reilly shot in Oceanside, CA on a Helium shape by Dan Mann.

For example, it’s common for a surfer who rides Helium to feel their foot sink into the deck when loading up turns.

But when wax is removed post-session, the footwells often aren’t there.

This is part of the reason why surfers who frequent online markets like Craigslist and Gumtree find it hard to locate used Helium shapes – their original performance levels last long enough to avoid being resold, and when they do get listed for sale, they move quickly because they don’t look used.

A surfer looks down on the Helium Chumlee by Dan Mann.

Because of this many Firewire grovelers are often built in Helium, like the Chumlee and Baked Potato because it’s groveler shapes that have traditionally endured the most deck beatings accross all of surfing, as surfers jump up and down on them to get past fat sections, generate speed, etc.

However, both Daniel Thomson and Dan Mann are each refining shapes currently for waves in the 4 to 8 foot range that are set to be built in Helium in 2019.

In fact one of our longest team riders, Gavin Gillette on the island of Kauai, often surfs his Helium Gamma in the most perfect, big, and round waves that Hawaii has to offer.
