The board of choice for progressive and aggressive riding,
big wakes, big airs and all-around slashing. A short nose
and fat tail give the gnarwhal tons of surface area and
lift for its length, and makes it a master at generating
speed and popping off the top of the lip. FCS II tooless fin
boxes are installed in a quad configuration and can be
customized down to a twin fin in a matter of seconds.
*The XR option features an inlaid carbon weave that gives
the board a bit more stiffness and strength plus a lot
more dockside appeal

Flat Nose / Fat Tail Progressive Surf Shape
Allows our designers to pack for more surface area and volume into a shorter
length board, fits easily into the pocket. This additional surface area is great for
larger surfers or those looking for more “punch” off the lip.
Double Concave Hull
The double concave hull helps create traction without sacrificing speed, and
also helps the board rock effortlessly from rail to rail.
Fast Rocker Line
The key to success when surfing small waves and being able to let go of the
rope behind the boat
EVA Deck Pad
Smooth to the touch and GRIPPY WHEN WET, our new EVA deck-pads
are not too soft and not too firm. Just the way we like it.
Dual Cupped Rail Channels
Located on the toe and heel rails of the boards, these channels give the
board additional “bite” when digging into the face of the wave. They feel
almost like a small cheater fin on the edge that helps keep you on the
sweet spot of the wave and prevents slip-outs.
Helps in the transition from toe to heel edge when rocking and rolling on
Aggressive Nose Rocker
Prevents nose dives without sacrificing board speed, allowing aggressive
style surfers to carve hard without the worry of burying the nose.
