The Sharpeye team blades of choice are the #77, HT2, HT2.5, Storms and OKAY models.
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 all new 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 all new 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 “Storms” is Kanoa Igarashi’s signature model suitable for small to medium waves. Kanoa helped Japan win the gold medal on the ISA games riding the Storms prototype in very small conditions.
Based on the original Disco Inferno squash, we added more area to the nose and created a bump squash on the outline for easier tight turning. We increased the nose thickness by pushing the volume forward and kept the same rocker and similar single to double concave as the original Disco Inferno. This board glides through flat sections and it can easily turn in the tighter sections of the wave, making it a new go to board for all QS warriors and local shredders.
We recommend this board for intermediate surfers looking to advance their skill even when the waves aren’t pumping, as well as advanced surfers who are competing in QS conditions or just want an overall great performance board for everyday conditions.

All of these features combine to create a fast flowing surfboard that will react at will and maintain control & speed in just about any condition thrown its way. Recommended for intermediate to advanced surfers.
