9’2” Grant Noble Wilbur
9'2" x 22 7/8 x 2 11/16"
Grant Noble is one of the most talented up and coming surfer/shapers that Newport and Costa Mesa has seen in a long time. His Wilbur model is an excellent all around longboard for those looking to get their hotdogging on. The outline is wide with the widest point set slightly back from center and tapering into a rounded thumb tail. The bottom contours start with a healthy dose of concave then tapering to flat towards the middle and finishing with a rolled bottom out the tail. The rails are nice, round, and forgiving all the way thorough. The rocker profile is balanced with a fair amount of nose and tail rocker that transitions subtly from the wide point outward towards either end. These components create a predictable and stable ride pointed towards noseriding and keeping this log in the pocket suitable for just about any logging wave. Noble recommends a 9.75-10" wider base flex fin all around or a pivot fin for slower surf.
