Huevo Ranchero aka “The FCD Egg”

Huevo Ranchero aka "The FCD Egg"

Spring is here and its arrival often brings visions of a new surfboard. The Huevo Ranchero is one of the more versatile surfboards that we make and works great in summertime mush or hurricane swell.

Watch as Cyrus shows you a few of the different fin options that are available for this board. How fun does that Bonzer look?

About fcd

Almost 25 years after Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard began hammering pitons, Fletcher, Yvon’s son, started Point Blanks (now FCD Surfboards) in a shack next door to the original Iron Works. Like father like son: Fletcher and Point Blanks proceeded to lay-up and destroy hundreds of fiberglass/ foam panels until they found a better, stronger and lighter way to build boards. And, with a group of freethinking surfers and shapers, designed higher-performance boards using the new technology.

    I picked up a Huevo from OBBC on the Banks and love it so far. It is a 2+1 setup with the stock fins. I was thinking of trying another set of fins for no particular reason other than trying something different. Do you have a suggestion to try? Thanks, Chris

    Chris-
    Well, you could go for the thruster feel and put in a smaller center fin, or you could go for the longboard feel and go with just a bigger center fin (set up as a single fin).
    Let us know how it goes!

    Thierry-
    There’s a dealer link on the top left of this page but try Long Beach surf shop if you are near Tofino, or If Only if you are near Halifax. HtO is a dealer s well but they don’t carry boards, not by their choice, we just can’t build them fast enough too open more dealers!
    Hope this helps,

    looking at one a LB replacement- how do they do in the super small stuff?

    Mike-
    They work but they’re not going to replace the glide and trim of a traditional(I’m thinking 9′) longboard. Depending on the size you pick you will have to be more light footed the smaller you go. Depending on your height and weight and ability (I’m 5,10 150)anything below 7’6 you’ll be finding your self moving back to the tail more than ever in comparison to your longboard. You camn drop down from your LB, but be ready to be surfing differently, I’d say that you’ll probably trimming from center half of the time you were when riding your LB, the rest you will be surfing closer to the tail generating speed. You shoudl see if you can try something of similar shape and size from someone, or if you happen to live near Cardiff go in and check one out.
    Hope this helps,
    FCD
