The Maytrix is one of our most proven and popular Pro-formance models.

The Matrix was developed when Jordy messed around in the shaping bay while at home. We cut a few boards and tweaked measurements and design details almost every surf. Jordy wanted a fast and responsive board for performance surfing to use through his European leg.

Over this period he then consistently provided feedback to adjust and fine-tune the model whilst he was surfing on tour. He needed a fast and responsive board that he could scale down to fit in the smaller conditions and compliment his quiver.  

Matt Mcgillivray from J-Bay qualified for the WCT surfing this model. We worked on his Maytrix and he gave us vital feedback from surfing perfect walls of Super Tubes to create a better balance in volume for the average weight surfer as well as keep up with pro surfing performance demands.

Both Jordy and Matt’s input was equally valid in the development of the Maytix so we constantly updated the design and make subtle adjustments to keeping it very versatile and functional for the everyday surfer.

Moderate entry rocker designed for quicker glide in day to day surf.

The outline of the Maytrix has a slightly wider nose to help with easier paddling into waves. The wider nose gives more area to land on when doing airs and the wider tail breaks into a hip in front of the fins to bring the tail in for control. 

In smaller gutless waves we need a deeper concave and flatter rockers with less tail-lift to generate speed quicker.  As waves get bigger we add more rocker throughout. This will create better vertical control and allow for smooth carves or power arcs and hacks.
