Suggested board set up:

Length:     as long as you want
Width:      what you can fit under your arm
Bottom contours:     a hull / a single to double to v ;
Rocker:     relaxed





This board is a great small surf summer board for short boarders or a great step down board.  The wide diamond tail gets loads of “push” off of the wave; creating loads of down the line speed whilst feeling loose and free through turns.  The extra width and wide nose combined with the relaxed rocker makes for super easy paddling, early entry into the waves and easily gained and maintained speed down the line – you can get your toes on the nose or throw the board about from the tail!!

Suggested bottom contour :    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.
Alternatively; 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 a rocky feel that makes the board easy to turn.


These boards will be shaped with 50/50 rails – for full low rails and hull designs; please check the “Love Stix range”
