Some people say, “Man, I’m tired of wiggling….I’m tired of my board sticking….I wanna go fast, I wanna feel free to speed and arc out my turns where I wanna.” These same people also say,

“I don’t want to think no more ‘bout having to surf technical and perfect in the pocket….and having my board punish me if I don’t…..somebody gimme a bullet.”

The bottom runs a single through the middle under the front foot for a positive drive off the front foot when the waves are small….then it splits to double barrel concaves ahead of the fins, and finally to a spiral vee through the front fins and pronounced vee off the tail. This incorporates the smooth flow of a traditional vee bottom (which is very free and forgiving and tippy rail to rail….and which also gives the tail a nice free brakes are off feeling instead of the sticky backfoot feel that can be common in traditional single to double concaves. Basically it combines the a flatter more traditional rocker with a synthesis of modern concaves placed into the traditional vee bottom….which gives the board much more horsepower and hold while still maintaining the classic free and easy feel under the feet.

Ideal conditions: knee high, mushy and blown to ribbons, to overhead glassy barrels
Experience: low intermediate through advanced
Designed for: fast, free single fin retro ripping with a twist of modernity thrown in.

Todd discusses how free a single fin feel can be. For those of you who haven’t ridden a single fin before or think that it was just a 70’s design that was obsolete when the thruster came along.


It really isn’t.


It has its purpose. And it’s a definite purpose that it’s got. And that’s to refresh your rail game, keep things free and easy and glidey, and it really lets you work on technique too. It’s the type of thing where it’s a technique-trainer without being a harsh schoolmaster.
