An unbelieveable all rounder that will handle just about any wave type with ease, the user friendly Stacey Snake Eyes by Stacey Surfboards has a smooth, crisp ride that never ceases to satisfy.
+ Excels is a variety of conditions: excellent all rounder surfboard
+ A great balance of speed and responsive feel on the wave face
+ Wide point forward gets you into waves easily, pulled in / thinned out tail let’s you turn hard
+ Great as a quad or a thruster
– Would be nice to shrink the package a bit without tampering with the dynamics. Would love to see the same volume in a 6’1 or 6’2

Best Wave Type
Just about any beach, reef or point break from waist high to well overhead. Snake Eyes loves lined up, hollower waves but will also tear up flatter faced, weaker waves and cut through mushy, onshore cr*p
- Channel Islands New Flyer (Swallow Tail) Review: great in bigger, better, more lined up surf
- Pukas The Game Review: great, standard beach break all rounder style board that I found also excels in better waves

This is Ben and welcome to Benny’s Boardroom! Today we’re going to talk about the Snake Eyes surfboard by Stacey Surfboards.
I’ve owned a lot of Stacey Surfboards and they have all gone really well for me. I think Lee Stacey is the master of foil, or figuring out exactly where to put volume and foam to give you the paddle power and speed you need without making a surfboard too bulky.
This is my latest Stacey Surfboard, the Snake Eyes, and I love surfing this thing. I surfed this last night actually in surf that was a couple of feet overhead to double overhead and it just goes so so so well. The Snake Eyes surfboard takes big drops, it holds into a nice steep face and it just flies down the line. And, if you need to do a big turn, it’s got this nice, pulled in swallow tail at the back that allows you to really crank the board hard. Really, really fun and versatile board to surf.
This is actually based off of a modern performance fish template and you will see that it has some fish-surfboard-like elements to it but the rails and the bottom contour – a standard, simple single to double concave – gives this board a performance feel. At the back, you get good release from the swallow tail but this is really tightly pulled in and it’s not too bulky. This tail is really easy to turn hard.
Looking at the rocker, you see you’ve got a little bit of a kick in the nose and a little bit of a kick in the tail but not too much rocker so, again, this surfboard is great as an all rounder in a lot of different types of waves. It will get into a steep face, a steep barreling beach break, or a heavier, faster reef break but will also surf very well in smaller, weaker waves.
Overall, the Stacey Snake Eyes surfboard is a really fun, fast board. I love surfing this thing. This is my all rounder for the waves near my house in Sydney. If you have had a go on the Snake Eyes by Stacey Surfboards, please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think. Let Benny know what kind of feel you’re getting from this board and thank you very much, for watching the show.
