The Tub Pig has been designed with Taj Burrow to suit his bigger local WA waves. With a wider nose and a rounded pin tail this board gives you a combo of paddle power and front foot drive combined with control in the tail. The Tube Pig is your big barreling, pumping waves, go to barrel board. The wider nose helps with speed as well as strength through the front of the board.

Taj requested “Something short ‘n fun, but still a (normal) board. Nothing too fishy. Right about, or just over, my typical volume, but just squished down and playful”. Going to work, we started with his 5’9 18.25” 2.25” 24.50cl (personal dims) BeachBuggy, and re-visioned it at 5’6” 18.63” 2.25”. We filled in the rails and foil until it sat at 25 liters flat, then relaxed the entire rocker, so the new bottom curve nestled perfectly within the curve of the original 5’9”. We hoped he would still be able to draw the same lines in spite of a much shorter rail line.
“That little board is ludicrous. I just surfed a soft little beachy here in Tahiti, and the thing went bananas” - Taj
After a couple subtle requested tweaks to rails and tail thickness, we made a couple more, and decided on a fitting name. Like every new father, there’s impending daddy duties and Mr. Burrow needs a new ride….The Baby Buggy! Domestication with a High Performance twist. If it’s good enough for TB…It’s good enough for anybody. Taj rides his 3” shorter and with a bit more volume than his typical stick, but average surfers can be more generous and go with added volume and maybe only 1″-2” shorter than a typical HPSB. For custom orders, it’s also just fine to order this board in your typical dims.
