In the dynamic world of sports, unexpected inspiration often leads to groundbreaking innovations. Football and surfing, seemingly different spheres, merge through the shared pursuit of excellence.
The brilliance that defines legendary football players finds an unexpected alliance with the cutting-edge technology that drives surfboard design.
Our Embassador Rod Cumba, who also works closely with his buddies at Lisbon Crooks and regularly tests our fins, presents an innovative approach that goes beyond the search for perfection and focuses on equipping surfers with the perfect tools to achieve their goal to improve surfing experience. With 10SURFBOARDS, Rod and his friends have a vision and desire to reduce the impact of the surf industry in the world. They want to help surfers find the surfboard that fits their needs, or have 10SURFBOARDS design a board with the perfect features for them.
"By combining the principles of football greatness with advanced surfboard technology, we aim to make the surfboard the ultimate ally, taking surfers to new heights before they even hit the water. When we think of football, iconic figures like Pelé, Diego Maradona, and Lionel Messi immediately come to mind. Their artistry on the field, unmatched dedication, and ability to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary elevate them as true geniuses of the game. These players didn't just strive to improve; they aimed to create moments that embodied the very essence of their sport. This same philosophy can be applied to surfing – it's not merely about conquering the waves, but about capturing the spirit of the ocean and transforming it into a personal masterpiece."
Surfboard Technology: A Fusion of Art and Science
In modern age, technology has crept into every aspect of our lives, including the world of sports. Surfing, once heavily dependent on the skills of one surfer alone, has evolved into a sphere in which technology and design play a crucial role. The fusion of innovation and tradition has resulted in tailor-made surfboards tailored to the individual needs of surfers, improving their performance and their overall surfing experience.
The aspiration for a perfect score of 10 is deeply rooted in both football and surfing and represents the pinnacle of achievement. But in the context of surfing, achieving a perfect 10 means more than just riding the ultimate wave. It symbolizes a profound shift in perspective – an approach to both surfing and life that revolves around feeling good rather than just excelling.
"Our mission goes beyond helping improve each individual's surfing skills; it's about helping surfers experience the essence of surfing. We want the excitement, serenity and oneness with the ocean to be felt , which only a surfer can truly understand. Just as a soccer genius leaves an indelible mark on the field, we strive to empower enthusiasts to leave their mark on the waves - not through dominance, but through a harmonious fusion of skill, technology and passion. With 10SURFBOARDS we fuse football genius and surfboard technology, inviting everyone to ride the wave of innovation and reach new heights in the surfing journey.
