FEATURES:
NEW SELF-VENTILATING VALVE
A self-ventilating air valve is available on the board. This valve is self-ventilating so, it should not be touched or removed – otherwise, you are at risk of damaging the valve system.

NOSE KICK
Prevents the nose from diving when getting into waves and paddling in choppy water.

FLAT ROCKER
In the center provides efficient glide and speed on flats.

FLAT STANDING AREA
Allows to have a wider stance for extra stability in chop.

MODERATE TAIL KICK
Allows for tighter turning when standing back on the tail.

WIDE ROUNDED TAIL
Improves stability when stepping on the board to turn. It also gives release out of turns.

MONO TO DOUBLE CONCAVE BOTTOM
Provides speed to catch the wave and then has sensitive rail-to-rail turning from the midpoint.

CHANNEL TAIL
Makes it easier to carry speed and hold through maneuverers.

SIDE FIN BOXES
Are positioned closer to the rail for quicker response in turns. Minimal change yet a big improvement.

FIN SET UP
Thruster fin set up provides comfortable straight-line tracking on flat and gives drive and control in surf.
