Sharpeye team rider Rio Waida has just dropped another internet melting edit in Quiksilver's 'ICONIC FOR A REASON - - - RIO WAIDA IN BALI'.
Rio's one of the fastest up and coming surfers in the world and his air game is next level, this kid is phenomenon and he's improving rapidly. We reckon Rio will be a certainty for world tour qualification in the next couple of years.
If you haven't watched this already, kick back, relax and enjoy.
Rio's weapons of choice are the #77, HT2, HT2.5, Inferno72.
The #77 model. Filipe toledo’s board of choice during his incredible road to victory in the 2017 J Bay Open. The #77 has more entry & exit rocker then his previous Holy Toledo model, coupled with a harder edge above the fins and more subtle concave through the tail. Quoted the "fastest board ive ever ridden” by Filipe. This board surfs best in good punchy waves and is recommended for intermediate to experienced surfers only. Order the model the same length as your height.

The HT2 (Holy Toledo 2). The board that carried Filipe to victory in the 2017 Lowers pro. A branch down from the Holy Toledo, designed towards the everyday conditions we face day to day. With a more relaxed rocker, wider tail and fuller rails than the Holy Toledo, this model is more user friendly in poor conditions whilst maintaining its versatility for above average conditions. The perfect board for a surfer thats after high performance that will maintain consistence in all conditions.

The HT2.5 (Holy Toledo 2.5) Still maintaining its design towards everyday conditions, only with added spark! After a request from Filipe to make the HT2 go as fast as possible, Marcio got to work. There have been a few minor tweaks throughout the model with the biggest being in the tail. A small channel has been added just behind the back fin. This channel has created three major enhancements, speed - bite - drive. When surfing off the back foot there will be a considerable amount of squirt and drive without sacrificing any grip. Exactly what Filipe wanted & noticed in the r'n'd stages. The HT2.5 is now a must have in his quiver as the board has been such a crucial part of his incredible 2018 campaign. A familiar feeling with added spice in all conditions, the HT2.5 is the peak off all round performance.

The Inferno72 is a tuned up version of the Disco Inferno, a tried and tested QS favourite. We have added more rocker in the entry and exit for more hold through turns and drive. It’s going to surf its best in small to medium waves and just like the Disco Inferno the Inferno72 is a performance surfboard that will handle just about all conditions thrown at it and maintain its spark.
