With roots that run almost as deep as they get, Robert August was bound to become an iconic name in the surf world. Influenced by his father Blackie August, a well-known surfer in his own rights, Robert started surfing in the early '50s. By the mid-'60s, Robert was blazing trails in the contest scene and had appeared in a number of films by legendary Bruce Brown, including 'The Endless Summer'. He had also begun working for Jacobs Surfboards in Hermosa beach, making his way from sales to shaping within a years time. Robert became an accomplished shaper and opened his own shop in 1974, thus becoming the Robert August Surf Co.
Today, Robert August is a household name around the world. Offering classic Logs like the What I Ride and Wingnut II to fun Mid-Length and more performance alternatives like the Fun Dip.

The Wingnut II is for the logger who wants to get a little more flow. A play off one of the most popular RA shapes, the Wingnut I, this model pulls the tail in and softens the rail a touch. This combo gives you nice smooth cutbacks and turns, as well as keeps you in control when surfing from the nose.

The Wingnut I was designed with team rider Robert "Wingnut" Weaver to bring you a board that accelerates down the line when needed, and nose rides with the best of them. Soft rails in the front blending to hard rails out the back with pronounced Vee, gives you control when on the nose, and projection when coming out of turns.
