SHORTER NOSE OUTLINE

Makes it easier to pivot turn and fit in the critical section of the wave without catching the nose.

THINNER RAILS

  • Increases the responsiveness and ease to engage rail-to-rail turns with less effort.

NOSE KICK

  • Prevents the nose from diving when getting into waves and paddling in choppy water.

FLAT ROCKER

  • In the center provides efficient glide and speed on flats.

FLAT STANDING AREA

  • Allows to have a wider stance for extra stability in chop.

MODERATE TAIL KICK

  • Allows for tighter turning when standing back on the tail.

WIDE ROUNDED TAIL

  • Improves stability when stepping on the board to turn. It also gives release out of turns.

MONO TO DOUBLE CONCAVE BOTTOM

  • Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the midpoint.

CHANNEL TAIL

  • Makes it easier to carry speed and hold through maneuverers.

FIN SET UP

  • Thruster
  • Center: 6.75"
  • Side 4.5"
  • Side Fin Boxes are positioned closer to the rail for quicker response in turns.  Minimal change yet a big improvement
  • Thruster fin set up provides comfortable straight-line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf.
