This is a board for you older and chunkier surfers who have balls of steel for bigger waves yet don’t really have the paddle fitness like the younger generations. It is a step-up for serious reef breaks yet it has a wide point forward towards the nose for easy paddling.
The wing near the tail area creates a break in the width of the tail, enabling that pin tail to be narrower. This improves stability in bigger waves, compensating for how wide the board is for a step up. Not only you can take off earlier on the hollower waves, but once you are on it you can just set your line and get the best kegs of the day guaranteed.
