Description

SLIGHTLY FULLER NOSE, CURVY MID OUTLINE, HIP DIAMOND TAIL…

The fuller nose offers good paddle power, lets you sneak forward while you claw in, the curvy mid outline starts to feel like the Flow and Acid, very surfable from the middle, initiates turns easily while positioned forward, the Hip Diamond is stolen from the Speeed and offers that magic snap off the backfoot when you turn off the tail…

LOW TO MEDIUM THICKNESS, STANDARD PROFILE UP FRONT WITH A SLIGHT BEVEL AND PRONOUNCED BOTTOM EDGE, CARRIES SOME MEAT INTO THE TAIL TO ACCOMMODATE THE DEPTH OF THE CHANNELS WITH REALLY CRISP HARD EDGES…

Keeping the rails low, adds to sensitivity into turns along with added stability at paddling speed, the subtle edge up front lets the front really climb onto the water and give it a skaty feel, even tho the rails into the tail carry some volume, most of it is removed due to the channels, so from the fins back the edge is quite crisp allowing for good release and speed.

HIGH PERFORMANCE SHORTBOARD STYLE ROCKER…

It’s a clean curve nearly all the way, with a subtle acceleration in the nose, the performance rocker transforms the board into something way more surfable than you think..

SINGLE CONCAVE WITH 4 SUPER DEEP CHANNELS IN THE TAIL..

The concave helps pull it up onto rail easier and also engage the face on the drops, but the outstanding feature is for sure the channels, I did a lot of channel bottoms in the late 80’s early 90’s and really enjoyed them more in my longboards, I used a curved channel (Thanks Star Jammer) that redirected water out to the rail rather than more directly out the tail, this had a feeling of allowing the back end to come around quicker and easier through a turn, because water was escaping out the inside rail, as opposed to needing all the water to travel completely across the board and release off the opposite rail, so in combination with the hip they have a similar effect… Next the channels make the board faast!!! Way faster than expected, at first this was a bit of a mystery, but my theory now is the added turbulence through the channels, creates a boundary of vortices and eddy’s that the board somewhat climbs onto and separates the surface of the board from the main body of water under your board when you’re really moving, also because the channels are cut so deeply into the rail I think air is able to sneak in there and create a little less viscous drag on the surface as well, lastly the Channels also offer an extra degree of hold, feedback is the board is harder to slide, so a lot of the advanced guys say they can go a size down on their fins and it works..

RELATIVELY FLAT IN THE STANDING AREA..

We basically stole the deck and rail profile from the Flow, so it’s a comfortable flat deck to stand on while the rails pinch down into a lower performance rail…

THRUSTER..

Standard reliable performance Thruster..

But the channels almost do the job of more fins..
