It’s that time of year again ( at least in the Pacific ), when big waves require more serious equipment. Xanadu Surf Designs has been working closely with Brian Conley, Skip McCullough, Caio Ibelli, Alex Ribeiro, and the rest of the team to develop boards to handle heavier waters. Contact us if you are interested in any of our boards in the Big Wave lineup. Better get moving, the orders are stacking up!
Xanadu team rider, Caio Ibelli will be surfing in the upcoming Quiksilver Pro France starting on October 6th.
Be sure to watch him surf against tour vet Adriano de Souza and lightning fast Keanu Asing in Round 1, possibly starting 11pm PST on October 5th.
Also, congrats to Caio Ibelli for qualifying to surf in the WCT next year!!
Tanner Hendrickson has been putting in some hours riding his favorite Xanadu models in varying conditions. Check this sick video filmed by Jensen Young Sik.
Here is another angle of Xanadu rider Skip McCullough charging Pasquales, Mexico. SICK!! This photo was featured in Surfing Magazine.
Here is the board that Tanner rode in the Vans US Open in Huntington Beach.
The model he rode is the VIPER, and the dimensions are below:
5’10” X 18.40 X 2.25 Vol. 24
Check this clip of Caio Ibelli filmed during the week of the Ballito Pro in África.
Todo ano que vou a Ballito quebram altas ondas, o pico tem altos tubos, esse ano foi meio contrário dos anos anteriores, não foi por isso que a diversão não foi garantida: férias nas escolas, praia cheia, comida boa e a queda diária garantida, não tive do que reclamar, assim foi a semana na África.
