SHAPE / DESIGN
A radical stab, creating an alternative to the Thruster. The Drifta Series it’s width and emphasis on skating speed pre-dated the revival of fish-style boards in the late 90’s.
Main features include: an updated classic single-to-double concave, running a decade ahead of the Performance School. Fluted and pinched wings, stepping down to a stubby swallow, or, chopped square tail, a round nose and mini side-fins, giving the Drifta it’s almost spaceship-like appearance. A 7 1/2” wide-based single fin completed the revolution to hotdog happiness. Driftas hide a typically uncompromising design capable of extraordinary down-the-line speed combined with the ability to break tracks (vertical or horizontal).
Truly a board about transition, from singles to tri-fins. From speed to advanced modern performance surfing.
FINISH & SPRAYS
Just as TF has shaped this board as an expression of shaping freedom, on the day, Martyn has airbrushed and sprayed accordingly. Martyn’s colour interpretation is created with the same freedom of expression. Both Terry and Martyn basically did what they wanted, for their own enjoyment.
MURAL: Designed, air-brushed and expressing individual flare
FADE: Rails and deck are sprayed to highlight and compliment the mural bottom.
FINISH: Gloss and polished to accentuate colour and vibrancy.
