What is a Groveler surfboard?
Grovelers do not have much of a history. Bob Simmons created the Mini Simmons back in the 1940's as an experiment to cram as much volume into the smallest board possible and this might have been the first Groveler. Over the years other people have recreated this experiment then about 2010, a Groveler category was created to be able to stick these strange looking, stubby shortboards somewhere.
Don't let these fool you! Grovelers are still an experimental category that are becoming kind of a big deal. On days that are so mushy you think you will never catch anything, the Groveler can pull through in a big way. Kona has put our own special modifications into some of these models so Grovelers aren't just for mush anymore.

This hip performance Groveler is a great upgrade built for speed. If you want to pick up the pace and transition to an intermediate board, check out the Floater.
A Groveler for small breaks to overhead barrels with lots of extra zip. This is a short board that stands tall on performance.
Oyster Catcher Surfboard
Don't let its size fool you, this shortened longboard still has plenty of float. The wings allow for a more pulled in tail for sharper turns.
Lemon Head Surfboard
A longboard outline wrapped in a fish shape. This board is great for all conditions and especially packs some extra speed on small, mushy days.
