7' x 21 1/4" x 2 1/2" - Volume 42.49L

Born out of a collaboration of Circle One and Cornwall based shaper, Chris Pearson, the 'Forgotten' range of surfboards is a limited edition run of 4 timeless retro shapes (from 7ft Egg to 9' 6" Noserider). All shapes are available in two colours in a glorious gloss tint finish. Chris is a dedicated old school back-yard shaper with origins very similar to Circle One's shaper and founder, Jeff Townsley. The collaboration is a coming together of shaping expertise and boards that will deliver the kind of performance and connection to the ocean that only years of shaping knowledge can bring.

When we got hold of the first one of these 7' Retro Eggs we just couldn't wait to get it into the sea. The board has all the hallmarks of a classic Egg; plenty of width to the nose and tail for easy paddling and take off, soft rails for hold on the wave and a gentle bottom concave to low rocker Vee on the tail for seamless rail to rail transitions. The Egg is all about simple lines and versatility; it works just as well in small messy surf as it does in bigger solid waves. The 2+1 fin set-up gives the option to ride as a single fin when the mood takes.

The Egg is best suited to the intermediate or advanced surfer looking for either a do-all option or as a fun addition to the quiver. The joy of these boards is not just about how great they are to ride, it's about the ownership of something individual with a heap of shaping history built-in.

The Retro Egg comes in 2 colour tints, red or yellow.
