The fever has its roots in Al’s trusted and proven high-performance shortboard series. What we did is we looked at some parts of a few different models Pat loves, including the Rookie/Remix/Mbm and the Proton. From the Rookie, we stole the “engine room” i.e., the entry rocker and the rail rocker leading into the fins, but lowered the overall rocker. We also used the slightly shallower concave found on Al’s Remix, compared to the Rookie, helping it be more adaptable in less than perfect waves. From the MBM we took Al’s hip squash, which gives great pivot off the bottom and awesome release in the lip. We then gave it a slightly wider nose and tail than the Rookie, which makes the outline a lil more parallel like the Proton, this produces more drive…and there you have it, Pat’s Fever. Still a very high-performance board but one that’s a bit more of an all-rounder and very versatile in a wider range of conditions which is exactly what Pat was searching for!
