The Seaglass Project Albacore is the simplest finless surfboard in the world. It makes the thrill of finless surfing fun, easy and user friendly. The feeling the Ancient Hawaiians had as they rode their finless Alaia surfboards is now more attainable to more surfers. The Albacore surfs much like a thin wood alaia because of flex, yet it is soft and paddles very well and easily.
The EPS core delivers this flex, and makes for surprising control and maneuverability. The board bounces from turn to turn and feels light underfoot. It takes the joy of finless surfing out of the advanced surfer’s world and into the realm of the beginner to intermediate surfer.
The Albacore is tough, versatile and safe. It can withstand rough treatment and needs no wax or complicated fins. It can be ridden standing or prone and is suitable for almost any wave conditions.
The soft round nose and finless tail is infinitely safer than a normal surfboard. With the Albacore I am ready for anything from small slop to powerful double over head tubes, but my favourite surf is head high peaky beach breaks.
It brings a new spark to this common surf. With so much versatility on offer the Albacore is hard to beat as the most promising all-round surfboard for any surfer, at any stage of their surfing.

Boards with Soft Shell construction feature much more technology then the eye can see. They are a combination of materials designed to allow the board to perform to the highest levels given the constraints of the flexibility of the materials. All boards feature an integrated Fin System, 2 or 3 Wooden Stringers depending on the size of the board to ensure the board is stiff enough. A light weight EPS core combined with a PE foam layer on the deck and a High Density PE Slick that is mounted to a thin PE Foam layer on the bottom give the board an awesome feel in the water. Soft enough not to hurt should you fall on it but hard enough to handle the power of the waves.
