“The Lucid Ojo”
The outline of the Lucid Eye is slightly modified from the classic design of the short-board revolution with a slighter wider profile throughout the board. In addition to the adjusted plan-shape, The Lucid Eye also has relatively full foils and the volume of the board gradually refines towards the nose and tail. This allows for a greater amount of volume to be carefully placed in the board without it feeling unrefined or cumbersome. The concave of The Lucid Ojo corresponds with the foils of the board. In the nose a subtle quad concave is shaped in the design to break up the water and free up the board, preventing the front end from catching during critical maneuvers. Throughout the centre of the board and between the feet a subtle double within an overall single concave carries through towards the tail where it intensifies throughout the fin area and exits off the tail as a vee-double concave. By accentuating the double concave in the tail of the board it increases the boards sensitivity and ability to engage and react accordingly to the riders command.
The Lucid Eye is quite a versatile design and can be ridden in a range of conditions with wave heights ranging from chest high to well overhead.

The Lucid Ojo is built in PE construction
All the Pukas x Eye Symmetry surfboards are built on a traditional polyurethane core with a complete epoxy laminate and finish known as PE construction.
“We are thinking more long term by creating a more durable product“, says Max.
The epoxy resin is known to be a higher quality material than polyester. Is more UV resistant, stronger and has more reactive flex pattern. The result is a whiter and brighter surfboard that doesn’t yellow as quickly as a traditional polyester construction (aesthetics) which responds faster to your movements (performance).
“The carbon stripes are quite a visual thing that I love” says Max. “We are honoring a traditional surfboard building process but we are adding some minor reinforcement and visuals. It’s basically a bit more love put into the construction of the board to make it last longer for the surfer“.
What else from Pukas by Eye Symmetry?
The Wombi Fish is a fast, responsive small wave board suited for clean, low energy waves.
After having very successful results with our dedicated quad model, The Cali Quad, in both Europe and the rest of the world I felt the strong need to provide a similar, user friendly quad design in the PUKAS range. Find out more here.
The Dako Roo is one such model designed for most regular, average conditions.
Initially inspired to create boards with wider tails and flatter rockers working closely with Hector Santamaria for the past few years it became clearly apparent that these attributes in Surfboards are essential for the everyday waves we so often encounter… Find out more here.
The Bud is a fast, somewhat sensitive board, which excels in clean hollow waves. A step-up board which is easy to paddle and travel with.
Designed by Tom Carroll and myself, The Bud was first created as a model for Tom to ride at Kelly Slater’s wave pool and is the shorter, wider version of ‘The Leaf’. Find out more here.
The Lucid Ojo is Max’s take on the modern performance short-board. It features a classic plan-shape reminiscent of the short-board era but has some subtle, contemporary modifications to make it more versatile and user friendly. Typically shaped with a rounded square tail and thruster set-up, The Lucid Ojo suits a range of conditions from shoulder high and above. Find out more here.
