Somma Special Designs

Central California based, Shea Somma crafts well-balanced takes on niche, heritage shapes. He applies a function and feeling-first approach to favorite obscurities like the pig, displacement hulls, eggs, and the like.

The Daydream Hull, designed around the punchy beach breaks of Newport Beach and well-suited to our local conditions. Inspired by Marc Andreini's Vaquero, the Daydream Hull has a similar outline with a little more thickness all throughout the board and a lower rocker profile.

The Cochon is a modern Pig-style longboard featuring a reverse rocker, rolled bottom contours, wide point aft, soft rails, and a subtle blended nose concave. This all translates to a log that can be ripped harder than the average classic shape and still noserides beautifully in the pocket. 

The Ham and Cheese is built with tip time in mind. A parallel template with a blunt nose and wide tail create a moving side-walk feel, but the secret sauce is the vee bottom combined with rocker lift and a scooped deck in aft end, resulting in levitating nose rides.

 

This is an example of the types of boards we carry from this shaper.
