Marcio Zouvi, the shaper behind the Inferno 72

MΓ‘rcio Zouvi, shaper of Sharpeye Surfboards and creator of this model, is known for being a great manufacturer and shaper of quivers, not just for the Sharp Eye Inferno 72 that brings us here today, but for a long professional career that the Brazilian has under his belt. In fact, his boards have been highly valued and used by WSL surfers since the 90s. Such as Binho Nunes, who has made magazine covers and achieved great results with Sharp Eye boards, as he did in 1995 at Pipeline.

Like other board models such as the Lost Surf Driver 2.0 and the Two Happy by Al Merrick, the Inferno 72 was based on a successful previous model from the same brand. In this case, we’re talking about the Disco Inferno, a reference board among both professional and amateur surfers.

Technical Characteristics Sharpeye Inferno 72

Finally we get to the crown jewel that we have been anticipating so much today, we tell you the characteristics of the Inferno 72:

  • OUTLINE: Starting with the outline or contour, in this case and like the Disco Inferno, it is similar and characteristic of high performance boards. With respect to the changes of its predecessor, one of them is that the nose is a little bigger, providing an increase of volume in the part below the surfer’s chest. This favors the paddling power and entry into the waves. In addition, we see another change in the thickness of the final part of the board, in the tail area. The Inferno 72 is a little thicker and has more support in the tail, favoring surfing in waves with less force.

  • RAILS: In general, the edges of the Inferno 72 are medium and very soft, neither too high nor too refined. The part where they are sharpest is at the height of the keels, where it is important that they are so for the board to be more sensitive and responsive.
RAILS INFERNO 72

RAILS INFERNO 72

  • CONCAVE: Continuing with the concave, we find a similar model to the Disco Inferno: from single to finish double in the keel part. However, the main difference in this part is that the double concave, which starts 8 inches before the keels, is deeper than in the previous board; providing high speed and stability under the front foot, as well as mobility under the back foot. Perfect for keeping your balance while allowing you to turn with skill.

In addition, this deep double concave combined with the thicker tail and mid rocker leaves the board higher on the water, with excellent support. So the water splits and, like the Disco Inferno, it becomes a loose and flowing quiver and, as you know, retains stability in the front end..

  • ROCKER:On the other hand, the rocker is more pronounced than on the Disco Inferno, both on the nose and the tail. Why is that? This allows the board to fit better in the most critical parts of the waves and also makes it easier for the surfer to make tighter turns, attacking the lip in shorter spaces (more pivot). Therefore, it can be said that it has a medium rocker curve in both entry and exit, with a little more acceleration at the ends.

Opinions and measurements Sharpeye Inferno 72 dark arts

With a board made to evolve and that requires a certain level of surfing, we recommend the Inferno 72 to those surfers who want a board to take a leap in level towards a more evolved and high level of surfing. Also athletes who already have a high level of surfing can use this quiver, perfect for maneuvering in the waves while remaining stable at the same time.

However, the Inferno72 was originally designed for Brazilian surfer Filipe Toledo to compete in The Surf Ranch Pro in 2020, but that’s not all, as this professional surfer won the competition with this quiver.

And you may be wondering, what makes this board so special that it’s causing such a stir? Here are some key points:

The Sharp Eye Inferno 72 surfboard is anΒ improved version of the Disco Inferno, one of the QS favorites. This Shortboard hasΒ more rocker on the entryΒ and exit to achieveΒ a good grip on turns, more drive and lift, as well as avoiding nose diving. The Bottom, from a single to double concave and flat to the tail, with medium-low edges for greaterΒ maneuverability and gripΒ on turns, and lastly, Thruster FCS II fin configuration for greater stability.
