Model 26

With everyone going shorter and wider in their small wave  boards, I thought I’d go in the other direction for mine. I went with the same length I normally ride but narrower and thinner than normal. I flattened the rocker considerably in the nose to help catch waves easily and maintain speed on a smaller wave. The length gives me the projection I like and the narrower width and thinner rail help the board turn tighter and quicker.
