The board is shaped by Shane Reuber with design innovation by me. It is 8′10” in length, by 27.5” wide and 3 7/8th” thick. There is substantial nose rocker and lift in the tail for easy of every in more critical surf. The design intent of this board is to be fast and responsive in bigger hollow surf, but also highly maneuverable in smaller, down-the-line type of surf. This Pro-Model if intended for progressive surfing with off-the-lips, round house cut-backs, and getting barreled in mind. This board is essentially a shortboarders answer to paddle surfing.
