This board is all about speed on big waves! This board was inspired by boards built by one of the best big wave riders on the planet. He charged huge surf all over the world and he ruled the Banzai Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu Hawaii. These waves require skills, courage, and the right equipment.
This board has soft 50/50 rails that get a little harder at the tail. The bottom is flat for speed and the narrow tail reduces drag to a minimum.
