Built for speed, this board is designed to go faster than Satan himself with maximum stability.
The Vampire “Too Fast For Satan” is an all-around performance machine designed to hammer down the line at maximum velocity.
With a flat rocker, full rails, and single to double concave this board just wants to accelerate. You’ll find yourself making sections you wouldn’t have on many other boards.
It’s an extremely versatile board that is good for most beach break conditions, anything from 1-5ft is it’s sweet spot. It paddles well and catches waves easily. And it has been my go-to board for a couple of years now.
The first thing that drew me to the Vampirate lineup are some of the crazy designs thought up by Ozzy Wright and shaped by Mark Gnech and Andrew ‘Droid’ Doheny. If you’re looking for a board that stands out from the crowd then look no further.
And if you’re not happy with any of the off-the-shelf colours you can get a custom made board with any design you like.
The board passes the “under the arm” test with flying colours. And the XF Tech model is super light weight and built to last.
In The Surf
I’ve been riding the Vampirate for about 2 years now and it’s still my default go-to board most days. I weigh anywhere from 78-83kg (depending on how much cheesecake I’ve been eating) and ride a 6’0″ setup as a quad.
It’s surprisingly fun in 1-2ft beach breaks as the flat rocker and wide tail allows it to paddle well and catch all the knee-high waves you can handle.
In super hollow waves the flat rocker and low nose entry do not inspire confidence, and it often feels like you’re going to dig the nose, however because the nose is quite narrow and pointy you get away with a lot more than you initially think you can.
The Too Fast For Satan feels best around 3-5ft where the square chopped tail combined with the quad setup makes it nice n loose and easy to throw around. Anything bigger than that and it starts to get a little skatey.

If you want something that’s going to handle hollow 6ft+ barrels then there are better suited boards out there. But for an everyday ride that will handle 80-90% of the typical surf at your local beach break then this is an excellent choice.
Setup as a quad with the square “chopped” tail it’s extremely fast and loose and a LOT of fun.
