DHD "3DX" Surfboard Review by Noel Salas Ep. 59

No obligation, but if you want to support the Site and keep the reviews coming you can donate here. https://www.paypal.me/surfnshow In this episode I review the 3DX by DHD surfboards. The 3DX is a small wave performance board for waves in the 1-4’ range according to the DHD website. The first day of shooting the surf report said 2-4’ surf so we waxed it up and began the testing process. The set waves were a bit overhead and to my surprise this 3DX handled the bigger surf very well. We spent 6 days shooting on this board as a Thruster and a Quad in waves ranging from 2-6’. I had a great time on the 3DX and I highly recommend this board for surfers in the intermediate to advanced skill levels. This board was made custom for me and the DIMS are 5’6” x 19 x 2 ¼ Liters 26.2. I am 5’9” and I weigh 160lbs or 72.57kg. Board description from the DHD website.(www.dhdsurf.com) THE 3DX is all about more Volume, more Waves & more Fun. The 3DX is designed to get you into waves with ease and will generate speed and flow in weaker conditions while performing lively & loose in all types of waves. Loaded with a wider outline through the nose and tail and a volumised rail will redefine your wave count and explore new maneuvers. Best suited for everyday surfing with average wave condition from 1 to 4ft. Special Offer: For a limited time DHD is offering FREE shipping on all Continental US surfboard orders ONLY and get a FREE DHD Board Bag with your purchase while supplies last.

Hello Noel, congrats for your great reviews, really. A suggestion:i have a JS Black Box (first version) 5'9" about 26L and a JS Monsta Box HiFy 5'9" about 27,5L. The Black Box is broken and looking to replace it with a similar small/medium size wave shortboard. Considering that i have a Monsta Box, would you suggest a DHD 3DV or 3DX 5'7" as alternative?

Paolo Ceriotti Yes the Disco is a great board for those size waves.

@Surf n Show Reviews thanks man!the shop I'm looking at has the Phantom so I'll check it out. It has a Sharpeye Disco 5'8" too and I like that stock volume and size..Would you consider that one too for small/medium steep waves?

Surf n Show Reviews - 4 years ago
Paolo Ceriotti I like the Wilko F13 the best on the DHD Small Wave Boards.

I really like the Neckbeard 2 and Rocket Wide too for 1-4’ surf. Also check out the Pyzel Phantom

Big fan of your reviews!

3DX vs 3DV vs Js Monstabox
What are your thoughts?

Assume 3DX = easier to use and more range

3DV = more perf for 2-4ft

And

Monstabox = combo of the above but more hi perf?

Noel, 4 feet Australian is not 4 foot Californian. The waves we saw you surf here was 4 foot (over head).

Anyway, who cares what the manufacturer says, it’s really what works for you. I’ve had some “small wave” boards go amazingly in overhead surf, it’s really more about what you want from a board.

Great surfing and I love the reviews.

how does this compare to the 3dv
Surf n Show Reviews
Surf n Show Reviews - 5 years ago
Luke Mitchell Both Boards are pretty good. The Wilko F13 is epic.... I would go with that one.

How did you get a Hurley suit on that colour ? I barely see the bright suits anymore
Surf n Show Reviews
Surf n Show Reviews - 5 years ago
Simon Chadwick This suit is 2. Years old and they made this 2mm for the masses. Hurley sent me two of them and I take very good care of them. There aren’t many suits out there these days with some color.

Check out Xcell... this season they have a sick Comp X in burgundy that I just got. Sick color and they make it in 4/3mm too. I just got one and it’s epic!!!

Hi Noel, great review as always. How would you compare the DX3 to the switch blade? They seem to have similar descriptions on the website. Thanks a lot.

Hey Noel great reviews as always.
What’s you favorite small wave shortboard currently? I’m looking to practice more airs but it’s been pretty much 1-4 foot lately. I Surf off my front foot.
Surf n Show Reviews
Surf n Show Reviews - 5 years ago
Kaleb Mannigel CI Rocket Wide in 1-3’ surf is really fast down the line and will go mental for airs.

Thanks Noel, I have that board and love it. Your reviews are awesome. I have Matt Biolos 5 fin set for mine plus I just bought the KA's as well, for bigger waves, as I found the MB's lack control for me when it gets over head. Looking fwd to the 3DV and the Twin reviews, YEW! My son has the 3DV and absolutely loves it! Cheers.

Marcelo A. de Araújo The wave range with this 3DX is better... it can Halle over head surf very well. For groveling in 1-3’ surf the RW is unmatched so far.

Great review. great board. Noel, any board look amazing under your feet. you are the best.
One advice : don't stop the sequences when you analyse the wave and board reactions. it's really really nice to watch, we learn a lot ! cheers.

Hi Noel. What outlines & rail would one need for double over head waves. Jbay is just down the drag for me. (I generally stay away from the crowds). But will go there & its over head +.
Surf n Show Reviews
Surf n Show Reviews - 5 years ago
Kevin Tyrer I would grab a Pyzel Ghost for that you ave. Round Pin Tail for extra hold for some big carves.

Best board reviews on Youtube! Would it kill you to crack a joke or add some humor Noel? This is surfing, not dentistry!
Surf n Show Reviews

mike powers Your right... I am pretty serious.... hopefully I will loosen up a bit. Cheers
David Gough
David Gough - 5 years ago
i love a board that pushes back against a deep backhand railturn off the heels.. as waves get bigger i feel more confident powering backside, so a board that can stay solid on the backhand seems more likely to work beyond its recommended wave size IMO.
Surf n Show Reviews
Surf n Show Reviews - 5 years ago
