Andy Cooper, creator of Seventyseven says he discovered Skateboarding in the Summer of 1977. A year in which the sport took a quantum leap when the “Z Boys”, riding empty swimming pools started to leave the coping and gave birth to the aerial manoeuvre that would in time revolutionize the sport, and influence both surfing and snowboarding.

Seventyseven is producing skatedecks that carry a sense of pride and a style that is unique and evolving. “We want our customers to have the freedom to design for themselves their own unique rides by choosing from a range of shapes, colours and styles. Our skatedecks are rideable works of art and our brand is a point of difference in the Skateboarding spectrum.”

“Ride Different”

Micro Mal

Posted in: Harvey, News, Surfboard by Richard Harvey on

A while ago someone came into the studio and was saying it would be good if he could get one board that did everything. After a bit of design planning I came up with this Micro Mal. It is a condensed longboard with nose concave combined with a pintail flyer for grip and performance, light twin concave vee throw the wide board up on the rail for shorter turns off the tail.

Fin combinations are pretty varied, single for more glide then increase the side fin size and reduce the centre back fin for turning.  Twin fins, thrusters and an extra set of plugs can be added to a custom order to make it a quad. This one has a bit of everything. So you can have “that fruit salad surfing feeling”.

Dont ride it too big as it already has width for stability and fuller rails for added buoyancy. This one is 6’5″ x 22″ x 2 3/4″

Lime Green tint on bottom and rails, multi coloured resin deck panel, finish coated and polished. All you have to do is choose your fin combo (fins extra) $890 Available in the studio now.
