MISFIT SHAPES Softworks 8'0 Speed Egg
M/SF/T ‘SOFT WORKS’ ~ premium, performance “soft” boards. Constructed from hand finished EPS blanks, glassed in EPOXY resin with 2 x layers of 6oz fibreglass on the deck, and 1 x layer of 6oz fibreglass on the bottom. Blanks used for the SPEED EGG have an additional ¼ inch t-ban timber stringer, reinforced with a vertical fiberglass flex column down the centre of the board, then moulded in a high density IXPE foam deck + HDPE slick bottom. Models are fitted with FUTURES fin system, and include a composite 2 + 1 fin set with purchase.
Although never released, we have been playing with this model for over 10 years. So it's old in design, but new (neo) from us. So here it finally is, the mid-length shape we always seem to circle back to, a classic ‘speed egg'.
The ‘NEO SPEED EGG’ is an all-round design with a relaxed entry rocker for ease of paddle plus a slight lift and a snubbed off nose to reduce catching in critical parts of the wave. The clean “eggy” outline has an accented forward placed wide point for effortless paddle and trim, tapered in to a round, or round pin tail for fluidity, flow and control when it counts. The bottom is a subtle roll vee to double vee combination, with a single fin, or 2+1 fin configuration, all combining to create a speedy all-rounder that flows, glides and planes in a wide range of locations and conditions. This board suits your transitioning surfer, through to your experienced short/ small board rider that wants a flowing, fast mid length board.
