Fourth Weekend Rockstar – Fish Surfboard

The concept for this board came to Harty wayyyyyyyy back when he was a kid, watching surf clips of Corey lopex surfing this little fish from lost. He had no clue about the actual design of the board but he knew he wanted something like it, so i tried to create it. The plan was to make a skatey speed demon that would turn Harty into corey, what he actually did was make the first board he ever really felt comfortable on in a range of conditions. Fast forward over 15 years and the weekend rockstar has become the go to performance fish. A user friendly all rounder for your every day surfer, or a super fun creative nugget for team riders and rippers.

The outline is fish based, but if you look a little closer you can see short board features masked in there. The nose is quite pulled in and there is a slight hip in the tail above the front fins, this leads to a very subtle bump behind which the tail is pulled in further. Its a template that makes a lot of sense for forgiveness and or average waves.

The rocker is low but with just the right amount of kick in the tail accentuated by a bit of vee through the back. The middle stays flat and then there is a gentle increase into the entry rocker which sits somewhere in the middle of a standard fish and a small wave shortboard. If you want speed and connectivity, this rocker is ideal.

The foil is forward on this board, more fish based than previous iterations. This was to increase stability and paddle power and enable you to be able to surf it a little shorter without negative effect. The deck line is domed, so removing some foam and whilst dropping into the rails. This comes into play when you are on rail giving you loads of control through turns.

The rails are boxy, with a nice amount of tuck and roll for added forgiveness. It’s a fast and smooth ride on the weekend rockstar..

The bottom contours are a soft vee in the nose, leading to a single to double concave with light vee behind the back fin. lots of lift and easy rail to rail transitions. A great combo for less than perfect waves.

The fin set up is a thruster and works perfectly as a twin plus trailer set up. The fcs 2 MRTX set is great on this board. Don’t be scared to get in a standard set of thrusters though if you want a bit more hold. The clustered fin set up feels great in beach break waves with the performer fins from Fcs2 in.

Construction options can vary from surfer to surfer. The EPS constructions make for a lighter weight board, that is easier to chuck around. The PU constructions however do work well with its smoother qualities. Either way you will not be dissapointed.

The Weekend Rockstar is your fun machine with performance tendencies. You might think of it as just your small wave board but you will end up surfing it all the time for its ease and explosiveness. One of Harty’s first ever boards and a true representation of what you need to make the most of the UK waves.

Base Construction

Base Construction (a polyurethane blank with polyester resin) is still considered the most versatile and all-round performance specific construction used the world over by touring surf professionals. At Fourth Surfboards only premium materials are used to produce top-quality boards; US Blanks at the core in blue foam and Hexcel Glass for the laminate bonded with Silmar resin for best balance between weight, performance and durability.

The Fourth construction method sees the board finished in 24/7 heat controlled environments to ensure curing times are at optimum levels to reach a finish unrivalled in Europe. The board is then sanded to a 240 dry sand finish ensuring that there is zero plastic lacquer on the board that can often look and feel horrible after a couple of months in the ocean.

Epoxy Construction

When the board is laminated it happens in a heat controlled environment using ‘resin research’ epoxy resin.

‘Resin research’ epoxy is ground breaking stuff, not only is it over 40% bio content it is also the strongest, lightest and brightest epoxy on the market. It isn’t just safer to use and better for the environment, it is also the best performing resin we could get our hands on. Given the characteristics of the foam and the resin, this surfboard as a product uses less resin per foot than standard construction surfboards, meaning the weight is further reduced. It all plays a part in why this construction method is so special.

FX1 Construction

FX1 Construction is lightweight, strong, dent proof, and has a natural flex pattern to ensure performance in a wide range of conditions. When you have a board that has very strong impact resistance, usually it will have stiff flex patterns that feel chattery on the face of a wave and be hard to control, especially at higher speeds. The FX1 construction method rivals the compression strength of sandwich construction epoxy alternatives but adds a better natural flex pattern to allow for ease of use in a wider range of conditions.
