The Habanero is spawned from my Grinder series of designs. I originally made some adjustments for a couple team riders(Brett and Courtney) who needed a small wave, contest performance board. i call this type of board an ‘active’ grovellor. it has more surface area in the outline to keep up the planing speed in smaller, slower conditions, yet still maintains a moderate rocker line with a little extra curve in the nose to keep it free in the steeper sections when they arrive. the nose outline is slightly pulled in and the tail curve from the slight hip is straightened a bit as well. it also features a ‘straight’ cut swallow tail for a clean and efficient release. a high performance grovellor, that can attack the steeper sections as well. (*this is the shape that Courtney was riding when she took the win at the US Open last year in typical Huntington conditions*) This has been an ‘off the menu’ design that was pretty much for Team riders, until i build a couple for Noel Salas, now the secret is out! hahaa
