Corey Colapinto and His Cruisy Colapintail
Corey Colapinto isn’t your normal longboarder. In fact, he started out on a shortboard, and spent many years chasing competitive success in shortboard events. But it was his skills on a log that brought Corey the most attention, and that resulted in sponsorships and the ability to surf full time.
In addition to spending as much time as possible on the nose, Corey also puts in his time designing boards, and his Colapintail model is a favorite of ours. Developed in partnership with shaper Ryan Engle, and originally inspired Wayne Lynch’s boards and surfing during the shortboard revolution, this board has evolved to include down rails and a double concave/spiral vee in the tail, making it a versatile mid-length that can turn, trim, and noseride. The Colapintail is a staple in the CJ Nelson Designs quiver, and comes stock at 8'3" and 8'9", with carbon fiber, XEON, and traditional fiberglass options. For those looking to mix the flow of a log with the radical approach of a shortboard, the Colapintail puts the “fun” in “funboard.” Come down to the shop and demo one today!
