We are excited to announce a bunch of new models for you this year. We have 5 new models total, 3 high performance shortboards, and two small wave boards.
The B-Side is our most high performance shortboard in our line. It also has the deepest single concave, and most accelerated rocker of any performance board we have built. Designed with team rider Barron Mamiya, this board was developed for his need for an ultra high performance board he can ride in contests as well as back home in Hawaii. This board excels in performance driven waves like Lowers, the North Shore, or anything that calls for a blade to be ridden.
The Beer Fridge
The Beer Fridge is another new addition to our high performance line. This model is a mixture between our Flashpoint and R2 models. The Beer Fridge has a thicker nose and tail foil which makes it an easier riding shortboard. The Beer Fridge has a lower overall rocker which assists in paddling into flatter waves and has a subtle hip to narrow the outline through the tail. Equipped with six channels, this allows the board to have a substantial amount of drive on flat gutless waves while allowing the board to have bite when putting the board on rail. The Beer Fridge comes standard with a rounded squash tail and thruster fin setup.
Due to the success of our R2, we decided to develop the R2+ based off team rider Barron Mamiya’s need for more rocker on his shortboard to surf in bigger, hollower waves as seen in his 2017 Triple Crown Rookie of the year campaign. The R2+ has 1/4” more nose and tail rocker making it excel in top to bottom hollow surf. The R2+ has a single concave like its predecessor, giving the board the maximum amount of drive. Ride the R2+ as a more performance everyday shortboard, or order it bigger as a step up in larger surf. We recommend a five fin setup for this model to allow you to ride as a thruster in performance conditions or as a quad when you need that extra speed boost in waves of consequence.
Our Holiday model is a new addition to our small wave selection. This fish was built to speed down the line yet has a refined foil for high performance top to bottom surfing. The Holiday has a double concave to a single rocket channel off the tail. This assists rolling the board over from rail to rail while giving it some bite so it doesn’t feel too loose. The Holiday has a mellow rocker, with a wider nose, and the midpoint forward making it an excellent paddler for surfers of all skill levels. This board can be ordered in a variety of fin setups. From a twin fin with a trailer, to a straight quad fin, or even a traditional high performance thruster. Order it your way.
The Minion model was spawned from wanting to put an ultra easy small wave paddler into the Chemistry lineup. This model replaces your need for a longboard when the surf is sub par. The fuller round nose makes this board ultra friendly to the novice surfer, while still maintaining performance for the more advance surfer to “cheat” in small waves. The outline is pulled in towards the tail making this board easy to whip around, while the double barrel to vee gives it a pivot point to turn off of. We suggest you order this model 2-4” shorter than your normal shortboard. Equipped with a 5 fin set up, this gives you plenty of fin options to keep you in the water on the slow days.

The Legend Of The 40 Dogz (Short Film and Soundtrack) Sunday, October 8th, 2017, the boys set out for the Los Angeles airport after a year of planning. It had been an eventful day; Willie Smith's vintage Blazer, affectionately known as "The Hurricane Hunter", had broken down on the side of the 405 freeway as they rushed northbound from the Chemistry Surfboards factory in Oceanside for the flight. A dramatic roadside abandonment later, they traveled to LAX in an Uber crammed with 3 bags of hand-shape surfboards saved from the Highway & commandeered by a driver who (scout's honor) promised to go back and tow the aforementioned 4x4. Meanwhile Alex Newman, fresh in from Portland, traveled via cab to LAX with Thes One and massive amounts of studio gear in giant padded suitcases. Brendan Simmons was waiting for the crew in the SkyLounge after a 12 hour shift at Fox Sports. Casey Macker was boarding a flight from NYC en route to Dubai & Wyatt Fields left SFO on Emirates. The goal, the hope, was that they would find each other half way around the earth two days later, board the boat and pull off a very ambitious project. Set up a studio. Chase a swell. Film It. Make a Movie, make an album. Live the legend of the 40 Dogz deep in the Maldives. 10 life changing days were spent sailing through the Indian Ocean. The Legend Of The 40 Dogz Follow the boys in this 6 minute short as they sail the Maldives in a traditional teak cruiser making beats, surfing and living off the ocean in a quest to escape the madness of modern society. Part travel diary, part surf edit, Thes One cobbled together the photos and video to present a visually stunning short capturing the essence of the trip and set to the music that was made on the boat.

An excerpt from the World Surf League's recap of the Vans World Cup of Surfing at Sunset Beach...
The youngest competitor in the event, Barron Mamiya, 17, earned the Vans Triple Crown Rookie Award by besting a field of 18 others and has had an incredibly successful year after winning multiple regional Pro Junior events, the WSL Hawaii/Tahiti Nui Regional Junior Champion, qualification into the World Junior Championship and now today's accomplishment.
"I'm stoked, I didn't even think I was going to win this award because I did really bad at Haleiwa, but I guess I made up for it here at Sunset," said Mamiya atop the podium post-Final. "I'm stoked to win it and hopefully I can keep the momentum going until next year."
Mamiya was the highest placing Hawaii athlete in the Vans World Cup and bowed out in the Semifinal after Andino narrowly beat him 13.63 to Mamiya's 12.04.
