BOARD OVERVIEW

IN STOCK BOARDS USE EPOXY RESIN, CUSTOM ORDERS USE PU RESIN FROM $1,199.

An instant classic, the Big Baron is inspired by the mid lengths that generations before us rode on the infamous Gold Coast points. This is paired with a more modern bottom contour and twin fin placement, then complemented by a neatly pulled in round tail for extra hold. Because on this board, you’ll be burning speed and burying rail. A lot of it.

An overall flat rocker generates and holds momentum in even the weakest conditions, while vee throughout the board from nose to tail with added double concave through the fins helps it rock from rail to rail and retain its manoeuvrability. The plan shape holds a generous distribution of volume throughout, with relatively low rails allowing you to still turn at high speed. The Big Baron excels in playful conditions from knee high to slightly overhead. And while short, sharp waves are not where its range of strengths are best used, it has the paddle power and ability to control speed that you’ll love in quality, longer waves. On points, reefs, or beach breaks with stretched out banks, the Big Baron takes the pressure off and lets you enjoy the downtime between turns, tubes or the typical sections other boards can get stuck chasing. And as a bonus, riding the Big Baron will naturally smooth out your surfing and translate almost immediately to the shorter, more high-performance boards that most of us want to ride when conditions (and mood) align. The Big Baron is designed to give a lot and only require a little in return. More time to set up and make adjustments, earlier and easier entry as you paddle in, and the ability to go further and stay out longer in whatever waves are on offer.

*Recommended fin choice – JS Twin Fin for Futures or FCSII Power Twin template (both pictured).

TEAM RIDER REFERENCE
The vast majority of surfers could ride almost any of the Big Baron’s stock dimensions. Start with a couple more liters than your regular board, then go as big as you like depending on the style of waves and surfing you’re intending. For example, someone with a longboard background might just step down to a 7’0” or 7’6”, while a surfer who only rides shortboards might go no longer than a 6’4” to retain plenty of maneuverability. And as you can see from Jason’s tech talk, Harry has done both to great effect depending on conditions and the approach he’s aiming for.

HARRISON ROACH Height: 5’10” (177 cm) // Weight: 72 kg - 158 lbs
*Rides 6'4 ” x 20” x 2 9/16” = 34.3L

*Rides 7’6” x 21 ¾” x 2 7/8” x 50L

JOEL PARKiNSON Height: 6’0” (183 cm) // Weight: 87 kg - 192 lbs
*Rides 6'8 ” x 20 3/4” x 2 5/8” = 38.4L

LUKE EGAN Height: 5’11” (180 cm) // Weight: 90 kg - 198 lbs
*Rides 7'0 ” x 21 3/4” x 3” = 48.7L

    Most fun board ever

    The Big Baron is hands down the most fun surfboard I've ever ridden. I've wanted one for a while and then magically found a used 6'0 in Oregon and it's completely changed my surfing. It paddles incredibly well, you can catch everything with it, and it goes on any wave type. The ease of turning on this twin fin feels like the board reads your mind and goes exactly where you want it to go.

    I took a two board quiver to Costa Rica and only surfed the Big Baron. The 6'0 is now my everyday shortboard because it's so fun and versatile. But that being said, I know I'd have fun on just about any size. I'd imagine anything up to 6'8 would be very nimble and shredable, while something longer would add some stability. Looking forward to experimenting with some more fins, too.

    So good!!

    Absolutely a fantastic board for so many situations; particularly joining the dots on down the line style waves.

    Baron Joy!

    I’m super hooked on my big baron - so much so I bought another one in a larger 7’6 (my first was a 6’8). The board has so much paddle speed that you get into waves early enough to enable better positioning for your first bottom turn . After 20 years of surfing shorter boards, I’m shocked it took me this long to figure out how good mid lengths can make your surf experience. Getting back far enough to do turns feels key and if you’re on a punchy beach break you just have to take a slightly wider arc - all part of the fun.

    Big Baron your beauty !

    I was on the market for quite sometime looking for mid length perfomance board until I found Big Baron !!

    I wasn't happy with my "short longboard" because was so hard to turn but with Big Baron I get what I have been looking for! Easy paddling board and easy to turns !! Bought two boards for my son as well ! Yew ..
