Surfer Harrison Roach was sick of excess baggage fees while traveling the globe with a full board bag so he decided to look into building an "all-purpose" surfboard that can do it all. This project required the help of famed surfer and shaper Bob McTavish who came in to create a board that can ride in a variety of conditions while being fast and capable of turning on a dime. 

The end result is the Sherpa, a 7 footer mid-length board with a "baby square down rail, a semi pointed outline with the wide point forward, a subtle diamond tail, and a touch of nose concave for extra paddle power." 10 of the boards are now available and have been split between the Deus Temple in Indonesia and Deus Sydney.
