Shapewise, this is the ultimate allrounder, designed as a competitive longboard with a focus on usability and performance. A perfect choice from a first longboard to a first place.

About Tully

Tully’s shapes have been honed on the long-running walls of Noosa’s Surf Reserve and its many surrounding beach breaks – the ride and flow of this PU longboard design is unmistakable Tully:

“Try to think of a two-board longboard quiver, with the Sleep Walker being the other part for smaller, longer walled waves while the Overdrive also excels in beach breaks and more powerful conditions”
Tully St.John


The Overdrive tail section comes with a regular 2+1 setup, where the side bites are Futures compatible and the center fin is your classic US-10 box.

Overdrive PU Construction

Overdrive PU construction diagram

Precision-CNC cut, shaped, laminated and finished by hand. With a natural flex pattern and reliable feel, PU has been the standard construction for many years in the surfing industry.

While not as durable or as light as boards laminated with epoxy resin, PU performs in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.

– CNC-profiled, hand-shaped high-density polyurethane foam with a wooden stringer
– High-quality polyester resin and fiberglass hand laminated and sanded to a satin-rub or fully polished high-quality finish
– NSP designed FTU fin boxes (compatible with Futures Fins) on all models

These have long been the standard for most brands and are the most widely and affordable option still out there.

Due to the core’s density, an Overdrive PU sits a little lower in the water than a PE board. Similar to the Sleep Walker in PU, this makes it easier to keep your rail under, requiring less input for slicy turns.

Being a touch heavier also helps PU boards to handle choppy conditions better and are less prone to being bounced around. Sitting lower in the water also has its benefits to barrel riding, providing more hold in hollow waves.
