Filipe was 16 years of age when he first rode SmoothStar. We developed a very popular model for him when was 17 called the Holy Toledo. Since then, Filipe has developed physically and is stronger and more powerful in his surfing. To match this power, we have added more concave in the deck and made the back wheels slightly bigger for extra hold through the turns. Riders of the new Toledo #77 can now push even harder through their rail turns and perform deep bottom turns. The board would suit surfers around the 5″8′ to 6″. Groms can still ride it but it will provide them with more drive, just like a bigger surfboard that they might surf.
Added to the new Toledo #77 is Filipe’s “77” wheels. The back is 2mm wider to hold the turns but loosens up the front of the board.
Filipe loved the idea of a black simplistic design. We work together on a mixture of black matt and black gloss.
