A board Stab likes: Dion Agius x SUPERbrand SPV
There’s a lot of Dion Agius in his new SUPERbrand joint. It’s called the Siamese Palm Viper, which he coined. It comes in four different design pieces, all created by Dion.

There’s a lot of Dion Agius in his new SUPERbrand joint. It’s called the Siamese Palm Viper, which he coined. It comes in four different design pieces, all created by Dion. And, the shape is a perfect mix of hold for carves, pop for shucks and lightness for airs, all refined through a tireless process of refinement, and inspired by Dion’s need for a connection between the two ends of his quiver spectrum. Let us dance with a few tech specs: The SPV sports a curvy outline with wider centre and subtly pulled-in nose and tail. Also, a medium rocker with extra flip off the tail. It’s a hip squash tall and only comes thruster – but the main thing to know it that the SPV should be ridden 1-2 inches shorter than your normal shortboard. Though, really, you should know your personal litreage by now, so just base it of that, honey. The SPV is only gonna enjoy a limited release of 100 boards per region, with only key retailers getting their mitts on a piece – so keep them peepers peeled. Full dimensions, etc over here.
