Is this deck right for me?
The 34” Toledo #77 is the newest SmoothStar deck for our Team Rider Filipe Toledo. It is perfect for surfers around the 5″6′ (172cm) to 6″ (185cm) in height. Taller groms can also ride this board but it will provide them with more drive, just like surfing a bigger surfboard.
5 x ply Stratified American Birch + 2 x ply Canadian Maple
Matt Black with Black Gloss
Filipe was 16 years of age when he first rode SmoothStar. We developed a very popular model for him when was 17 called the Holy Toledo. Since then, Filipe has developed physically and is stronger and more powerful in his surfing.
While creating the 34” Toledo, Filipe was specific in the design process…and we delivered. The Toledo 34″ has a deeper concave than his other board the 33" Holy Toledo. When paired with wider wheels at the rear (how Toledo requested the complete set up be designed), it enables surfers to push harder through their turns and hold the rail without sliding out.
The end result is riders can practice much sharper, more powerful maneuvers, whilst maintaining looseness through critical turns. Riders of the new Toledo #77 can now push even harder through their rail turns and perform deep bottom turns.
Filipe loved the idea of a black simplistic design. Together we worked on a mixture of black matt and black gloss which looks awesome. #77 is also Filipe's choice of competition jersey number.
Surfing more frequently and in more challenging waves isn’t the only way an advanced surfer can improve. The SmoothStar surf trainer can help you perfect more critical turns, adjust technique and correct bad habits, as well as simulate critical surf maneuvers such as aerials, all while training your core surfing muscles.
