B-Stinger (Love Stix range – mal)
Suggested board set up:
Length: as long as you want
Width: what you can fit under your arm
Bottom contours: v (hulled up front & with a deep single concave either side through the back)
Fin Set up: single
This board is fun and loose to surf with great for going from rail to rail and cutting back. The board is exra wide throughout; providing loads of paddle speed and boyancy whilst the poulled in swallow provides plenty of grip and drive on the face. The stinger (or wing) acts as a pivot point further up the board; freeing up the tail and allowing the board to turn on a tighter radius.
The board is great as a hull shaped v up front flattens slightly through the centre before becoming a more prominent v with a concave either side through the back of the board providing performance feel.
Alternatively; A single concave under the nose and chest area passing to a flat through the centre and a v through the tail; will allow you to run up to the nose to hang ten or get on the back and hack those turns in.
