Size Tested: 136x41cm

Manufacturer’s Description:

The Shox Custom is the ultimate upwind machine. It has quickly climbed up the CrazyFly ranks since we introduced the Double U Concave Bottom shape last year. It’s built for freeride, with soft to medium flex for the most comfortable ride imaginable. We only use specially selected wood in the production of the Shox Custom. The Double U Concave Bottom shape increases the overall all-round abilities of the board. With this shape, the Shox Custom becomes the ultimate chop eater and the upwind performance is staggering. For this year we have upgraded the performance and we have reworked the look slightly. The construction layup ensures the perfect flex, stiffness and pop and offers a fantastic balance between these elements. We have also focused on increasing the flex of the Shox Custom to make it even more comfortable for smooth freeride but still with enough pop for pulling off tricks.

Tester’s Comments:

“Good response and really smooth in the chop. The straps/pads were really comfortable for me,” Davey Beard.

“This is the board I wanted to take home. Super soft pads and straps, good pop, and a very soft feel while riding,” Kirstyn O’Brien.

“Light, nice pads and straps, fast, and flexy. Great upwind and really smooth ride,” Gary Martin.

TKB Summary:

The 2012 CrazyFly Shox Custom features an all-wood core, fiberglass construction, ABS rails, and a double concave bottom shape. The graphics are very bright, making the board very easy to see in the water. Testers reported great upwind performance and an extremely smooth ride in the chop.

The CrazyFly Shox Custom came with the Dura footpads and Quick Fix II straps. They might have an old-school look to them, but they were easy to install and testers found them easy to adjust and commented that they were really comfortable.
