SMTH Shapes Volume
The Volume is the board that Jordy continued to adjust and fine-tune while competing in Europe. When the news broke of his Olympic qualification we adjusted this model to suit the Japanese conditions because Jordy is by far the tallest and heaviest surfer on tour. We flew over to Japan to experience the waves first hand and fine-tune the model. This is the story that lead to the birth of the Volume! Jordy tested this design extensively when he returned to Durban tweaking the rocker, concave, and rails to make it perform better. The Volume also had a big impact on Matt McGillivray from J.Bay where he too added vital feedback to scale the dimensions of the Volume for the average weight surfer. This allowed us to achieve a well-rounded dimension scale. Jordy’s input is about constantly fine-tuning and testing products so that even a stock Volume model off the rack will perform at the pinnacle of performance surfing. Jordy’s design persistence has resulted in subtle changes on the Volume that will benefit the every-day surfer.
