There have been huge changes with this model for 2015 - it's tail has been pulled in, the rails are blockier, it has a deeper double barrel concave under the back foot and now comes as a quad. This board can now do it all, its super fast down the line, it turns on a dime, the quads keep it super secure when the waves turn hollow and help make it a lot more backhand friendly. Best a couple of inches shorter than its human rider and will perform in tiny to well overhead waves. Fun! fun! fun! Did we say this board is heaps of fun.
