Whether you’re a primitivist like Gauguin or a minimalist like Mies Van der Rohe, we know you believe the essence of a thing is its true value, and that kitsch accoutrement is for the birds. You know that real creative expression happens on the wave, and what you need is great design and purist performance. Bienvenu à (Welcome to) PRIMITEK.
For nearly 2 years M/SF/T have been developing an EPS/ Epoxy construction with the product engineers at SURFTECH in California. The construction possesses all the great benefits of highly technical eps/ epoxy construction (strength, flex, lightness, liveliness) but in a stripped back minimal aesthetic, with the normal graphic expression you'd come to expect from M/SF/T.
"We wanted the pinnacle of technical eps/ epoxy construction, but we didn't want the taping, inlays, laps, carbon fibre busyness that usually comes with construction in this space. So Primitek is stripped right back, but no expense has been spared on the foam, cloth and resin we have used to make the boards perform and last." - Dave Howell, founder/ shaper.
By keeping the construction simple we’ve found our boards built in Primitek perform as an extension of surfers’ instincts. Intuitively connecting your imagination and ability in a creative collision of a primal past and an ethereal future. Primitek is the blank slate and firm foundation for you to build your masterpiece.

Our classic NEO ‘SPEED EGG’ now has a spicy sister model, the ‘SPEED EGG - DIAMOND TWIN’. And really a “sister” is the best way to describe these board’s fundamental differences – she’s a bit smaller, a bit naughtier and she loves Gaga. But like most siblings, the boards are very similar, with the only real differences being overall length, fin setup and the addition of a subtle diamond tail.
The original ‘Neo Speed Egg’ is an all-round design with a relaxed entry rocker for ease of paddle plus a slight lift and a snubbed off nose to reduce catching in critical parts of the wave. The clean “eggy” outline has an accented forward placed wide point for effortless paddle and trim. The OG speed egg bared a round, or round pin tail for fluidity, flow and control. The now diamond tail responds in much the same way, but the points of the diamond accent the rail line, giving it more drive, when then combined with the twin fin configuration allow for effortless release and masses of speed.
The bottom shape is the same subtle roll vee to double vee combination, which paired with the change in fin setup to twin, diamond tail + shortening of overall length, create an even livelier all-rounder that flows, glides and positions in a wide range of locations and conditions. Again, this board suits your transitioning surfer, through to your experienced short/ small board rider that wants a fast, flowing, dynamic mid-length.
