Bessell Quad (M) - Apex

  • $105.00


The Bessell Quads were designed by San Diego shaper Tim Bessell.  Tim originally designed these quads for his Barracuda model, "which is a cross fish and a performance board."   They're a split keel design that "work great in anything from classic Fishes to hybrids and high performance shortboards."  Both the fronts and rears have a unique inside (transitional concave) foil that Tim has dialed in over the course of several decades. 

Tim began his professional surfboard shaping career when he began working at Sunset Surfboards in Encinitas, Ca as a teenager.  By the age of thirteen, Tim had begun shaping boards for himself and others out of La Jolla, Ca.  At the time he was one of the youngest surfboard shapers in the industry.  He hasn't looked back since and, to date, has shaped and produced over 46,000 boards. "His boards have graced the covers of Surfer Magazine, Surfing Magazine, Beach Culture, and countless other surfing magazines. Many world class surfers have ridden Bessell Surfboards including: Peter KingLuke EganJon RosemanGlen WintonBrad Gerlach, Vetea David, Ricky Irons, David MacAulay, Saxon Boucher, Debbie Melville Beacham, Ryder Mackey, Chris O'Rourke, Billy Choe, Simon Law, Juston Postin, David Eggers, Davie Miller, Richard Kenvin and more."
