Features

 

FULLER NOSE OUTLINE

gives enough float and stability to ride toes on the nose for classic Longboard styling.

 

MODERATE TAIL KICK

 

ALLOWS FOR TIGHTER TURNING WHEN STANDING BACK ON THE TAIL, HELPING TO TURN WITH EASE.

PARALLEL OUTLINE

Parallel straight outline in the midpoint provides a smooth fast glide that is easy to trim the board.

 

LOW VOLUME THINNED OUT RAILS

– Easily engage with minimal foot pressure, giving control down the wave face and hold through steeper sections of the wave.

– Ultra responsive and sensitive to turn direction with speed and control.

 

FLAT DECK AND MIDSECTION

Flat deck improves stability and makes transitioning effortless from rail-to-rail allowing for drawn-out carves.

 

MONO CONCAVE

Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the mid point.

 

FIN POSITION

After testing multiple fin positions, we chose to place the side fins very close to the rail. This enables carving with precision and hold through turns, while the center fin position gives tracking and drive.

Can also be surfed as a single fin.
