The Retro Fish™ Shape is also new to our line up in 2018. It is wider throughout the nose area, which provides ample buoyancy in smaller or further-out conditions. The drawn-in tail with the deep swallow provides incredible maneuverability even in larger conditions. Ideal for small to slightly above average wave conditions. "This might be my new favorite small wave board" - Blair Conklin (2x World Champion)
3/4'' Tapered to 5/8'' thickness means that the center of the core is 3/4'' thick and thins out to 5/8'' (roughly) in the nose and tail. This creates added buoyancy while keeping the board maneuverable, just not quite as responsive as the 5/8''. This thickness is typically more ideal for slight below average to slightly above average wave height and strength.
This rocker was developed by Sam Stinnett to incorporate more rocker in the nose and tail (approx. 2.5" in the nose), and reduce the footprint of the flat spot on the bottom of the board. This creates a board that turns on a dime in even the largest conditions. It does slightly slow the board down when planing, but if you run as fast as Sam does, that shouldn't hinder you.
Light, Strong, Durable, and preferred by riders who put more emphasis on performance than cosmetics. This is the finish the company was built on and the golden standard in which others imitate. Some sanding required for proper traction adhesion.
