Play - 8'0
Longboard for beginning to intermediate surfer.
Easy board to catch waves. The combination of a round nose and concave bottom in the front half of the board makes it possible to walk to the nose and practise the typical longboard style of surfing. The last half of the board has double concave to facilitate turning of the back foot. Round full rails in the front 2/3 of the board for forgiveness and flotation, thinner and harder rails in the tail for easy water release (speed!) and control. Ideal first board for a surfer between 80 and 105kg.
