We met up with Mikey February and our CT surfers Lakey Peterson, Jacko Baker, Joao Chianca, Nat Young and Jordy Lawler to let them take their first spin on our new everyday shortboard: Happy Everyday.
We captured immediate reactions and thoughts following their first session.
Created by Britt Merrick from what was initially the Two Happy performance shortboard model, our new Happy Everyday fills a need in every surfer’s quiver: the everyday shortboard.

Sometimes you face the kind of conditions where you want to rip but aren’t feeling the groveler vibes, and at the same time it may not quite be the epic stuff you would use your high performance shortboard for. To achieve this goal, Britt shortened the rail to create a curvier outline, especially through the tail area. For both the entry and exit rockers he lowered them to increase paddle and planing speeds to cover a broader range of conditions. The single concave under the front foot acts as a gas pedal and generous double concave through the fins provides rail. The single concave under the front foot acts as a gas pedal and generous double concave through the fins provides rail-to-rail ease and plenty of lift in the small stuff.
The Happy Everyday is a great all-around design that sits right between your high performance shortboard (Two Happy) and a step down/groveler (Rocket Wide). It’s ridden most often as a thruster but can be ordered as a five-fin—some people have been raving about riding it as a quad.
