The model name “Holy Toledo” was inspired by Felipe’s nickname, due to his radical and progressive surfing style when he was only 16 years of age. Toledo loved the looseness of the 32” Flying Fish, but needed a bit more drive so a design was created extending all the measurements. Toledo later tested a few different setups of width and wheels base distances. The 33” Holy Toledo gives surfers an all round surf performance and especially excels in generation of speed on flats.
