Maurice Cole has been at the forefront of surfboard design since 1990 when his revolutionary reverse vee bottom shape propelled Tom Curren to a world title.

Since then, Maurice has continuously pushed the envelope of design by always searching for more speed, more manoeuvrability and increased longevity. SWAT tails, full length crisp rails, deep concaves, eco builds, and the importance of choice of stringer are all areas where Maurice Cole continues to push surfboard design forward. Maurice never sleeps when it comes to building a better surfboard. The list of surfers Maurice has shaped for include Curren, Slater, Machado, Taj Burrow. 

All Maurice Cole designs are available to UK surfers through Inner Visions. 

Reverse V Hybrid

Maurice Cole’s been touting Reverse Vee and the return of Reverse Vee for years. Well, now it’s back. While the name may remind you of the Curren era, the performance is modern due to all the tweaks Maurice added to the design from his breakthroughs over the years. In a world of vanilla with different logos on it, these boards stand out as being truly unique.

The crisp rails nose to tail add significant drive and speed down the line. Over the last three years, Maurice has tucked this edge a noticeable about to “hide” the edge in hard turns to allow it to break free like a normal softer shortboard rail. Maurice says surfers can also “tune” the forward edges with wet sandpaper as they are all resin. He did mention anyone who did do this in the past actually regretted it after they lost the additional drive and speed.

 

Why you want a Maurice Cole Reverse Vee:

Whether it’s smaller waves, pumping tubes, or all around hybrid performance, you’re looking to experience the legendary Maurice Cole Reverse Vee rail turn with a modern twist.

Shiva

Maurice Cole designed his new Shiva as a collaboration project with Roark to create a rangy travel board that performed in a wide variety of conditions....and moods. The MC Shiva allows surfers to dial in performance and personality of the board to suit conditions perfectly. MC claims surf range of 2-8ft surf (mainland size scale).

The Shiva is very easy to paddle and catch waves with. The flat rocker and hybrid outline make surfing easy and productive with high wave count. Once up and riding, this board has a very confident feel and is super fast and drivey down the line. The crisp rail edge it tucked well underneath the board rail apex, combining incredible speed and drive, with manoeuvrability and looseness. This same edge gives surfers noticeable hold on steep walls and engages more quickly than rounded rails giving surfers an added level of confidence in powerful surf conditions.

The 4+1 fin set up and getting the placements correct is a math equation nightmare but Maurice nailed it with excellent performance in all modes. The ability to shift gears into all these different fin configurations gives you the ability to dial the Shiva's performance to the day's waves or your own surfing mood. Thruster for shortboard ripping, quad for barrels or flying down the line, 2+1 and single for going with the flow. Different waves (and moods) dictate different equipment. The Shiva allows you to shift gears and do it all on one board.

ATM

Designed for Waves 2 - 12ft.  It’s the closest MC makes to a conventional board.  It has a deeper concave than most designs with a lot of tail kick, which means a bit faster and carvier than your current ride. So if you want to begin your adventure on an MC board gently, the ATM will do it for you just enough to make you get really adventurous next board around.

Over the last 20 years of working and testing with the world’s elite surfers, MC has continued to design and shape the magic surfboard for surfers from Curren, Occy, Margo and Slater to Taj, Trent and Ross Clarke-Jones. All these curves and rockers are all Original Designs and have been tested extensively for 12 months before releasing into the market.

The ATM is used in kid grommet boards, short boards, semi-guns or the next board up from a short board and in the bigger Indo/Hawaii guns, that are up to 10 foot long. This design has an elite pedigree and can be relied upon to ride in all conditions.

Pro surfers or advanced riders require a design to work in a variety of waves. The ATM can be relied upon for travel, as it will handle anything that Mother Nature throws at it!

ProTow

The Maurice Cole Protow is the step up brother to his wicked fast MC Metro design. The Protow is tuned for more powerful waves with a slightly shallower concave, added rocker and a rounded pintail shape. Under close inspection, this board has a noticeably thinner rail than what the listed dimensions would indicate. The max thickness is kept under the chest and along the stringer. This thinner rail combined with the crisp edge gives the Protow unreal hold and confidence in steep, faster breaking, powerful waves.

Nose to tail, the foam is also highly concentrated under your chest with a thinned out nose and tail section. This keeps swing weight down and grip up, while maximizing paddle power. Equally at home in the tube or on the open face, the Protow has maneuverability in the turns that some other compact step-ups lack.

The Protow features MC’s pronounced concave bottom shape, although not nearly as deep as his Metro design. The combo of the concave bottom and thinned/crisp rails make for a very stable platform for paddling, popping up and surfing. Maurice likens it to how a catamaran is more stable than a monohull. If you don’t like his futuristic philosophy, know that it makes a difference when you’re surfing it. The concave also adds rail rocker, which helps in loosening up the board for open face turns.

Metro

Designed for Waves 1 – 5ft. The Metro combines width and thickness from the old retro fish, but introduces a tow inspired bottom rocker and a very deep concave. More width in the tail creates a larger sweet spot and an accentuated change in curve at the 1 mark loosens the board up. This board replaces all Fish type boards. This design has a foot in both camps. Stability and float while still maintaining the edgy characteristics of speed and rippability. Evidence that you can occasionally teach an old dog new tricks.

The Metro is easy to turn and will suit surfers that like a retro feel, but want performance from a board. Unlike an old school fish the Metro 3 will sit high on steep fast sections and won’t morph into a shopping trolley style slide when you want to lay a full tilt cutback or carve deep lines into the wave face. Ask and you shall receive. This is no bog monster.

Reverse V Shortboard

Just like the OG version, the new Maurice Cole Reverse Vees take modern surfboard design and turn it upside down. Normally boards have concave up front and Vee out the back. The new Maurice Cole Reverse Vees have Vee underneath there chest and this helps engage the board on rail immediately when dropping in, and also help the board rail turn more aggressively.

The crisp rails nose to tail add significant drive and speed down the line. Over the last three years, Maurice has tucked this edge a noticeable about to “hide” the edge in hard turns to allow it to break free like a normal softer shortboard rail. Maurice says surfers can also “tune” the forward edges with wet sandpaper as they are all resin. He did mention anyone who did do this in the past actually regretted it after they lost the additional drive and speed.
