Getting more popular as of late, this design is ordered 3 to 4 inches shorter 1/2" wider and 1/8" thicker. It has a flat deck with laid over rails for bite. The slight step at eye level when paddling, takes out all extra foam out of the nose that you get from fatter boards. The bottom has a slight single concave then vee from fins back with deep double concaves to vee at the tail pod. Fin set up can be quad or thruster with tail shape being swallow with or without wings or round tail. They paddle unreal, are stable, very fast and loose; great for having fun in small waves with performance in mind.
