ACSOD Lotus Model Overview

The Lotus is an ode to the 80’s thruster. Pioneered by Simon Anderson, Alex’s take on the early 80’s thruster includes all the original design elements like the bump flyer, beak nose, low smooth rocker and flat deck with chimed low/soft rails. Building from these features, the modern twist we’ve added to this classic design is in the length and bottom shape. Designed to be surfed 3 inches shorter than what was commonplace during that era, it allows the board to fit in tighter in the pocket and surf with a modern performance approach. Next was tweaking a traditional vee bottom. Keeping a little vee in the nose to prevent catching, we added a shallow single concave under your chest that blends into a deep double concave between the fins, finishing with a flat exit. These changes have replaced a slower, rail to rail roll with more speed and release. Allowing you to skate fast down the line and perform reactive manoeuvres. Mixing old and new to reinvigorate a classic design.

Mixing old and new to reinvigorate a classic design. The Lotus is a fast and responsive board with a classic feel that excels in average to decent surf.
