The design concept of The Shred Sled model was used as the starting premise in the creation of the Psychedelic Germ. One of the key notable changes was the addition of displacement hull designed by both Hayden Cox and well-known Australian Naval Architect, Andy Dovell. The second key feature being the snowboard inspired side cuts.
Similar to that of a boat design, the hull softens the water flow through the entry of the board. It hits the ridge of the hull, and is dispersed into the single concave. When taking off late, this assists in planing through choppy water or helping to land critical maneuvers.
The side cuts shorten the radius of turns, meaning the board will draw a much tighter arc. During bottom turns, it engages the 3 dimensional curve that the side cut creates, which draws the surfer up the wave face. This then transitions onto the inside rail which pulls the surfer around and back into the pocket with ease.
For a shorter and wider board that’s strikes the balance between performance and innovation, the Psychedelic Germ has all the features needed to bring a whole new dimension to surfing.
I got addicted to the Germ for a while. They’re pretty hard to get off. I kinda tripped out on the weird aesthetic. The side cuts, how it warps out a little bit with that beaky nose. Every feature compliments each other in a way.
