Imaikalani deVault by Fishbowl Diaries
Keith Teboul by Damea Dorsey
Designed to paddle like a dream, glide through tubes, and turn on a dime, the Helix has become a staple in the quivers of team riders Kai Lenny, Imaikalani deVault, Ian Walsh, Ian Gentil, and Logan Bediamol.
Keith initially started working on the design of the Helix for Lalo Goya and himself as a shape to handle larger and more hollow conditions. It eventually transitioned to becoming a crucial board in surf trip quivers and at home on Maui during the winter months. After refining the shape with Imai and Gentil during the contest season on Oahu’s North Shore, the Helix was born. While not intended to be a full-blown step up, the Helix is the board you can trust to get over the ledge or when you need to hold a line and excel on rail.
The Helix has a wider tail, and the wide point isn’t as far forward. It has a medium tail rocker with a medium entry. This allows the board to handle heavier waves and turn at faster speeds. A medium rail for some grab yet forgiving enough for the faster speeds.
This board comes in a thruster setup with Futures boxes.
The Helix is our most advanced shape for those in between days. Comparing it to the Crusher, it helps you handle the bigger surf better and is ideal when it is still not big enough to pull out the Solo.
