This board is designed to live in good swell or waves. It doesn’t quite have the tracking grip of a single fin board but it has incredible looseness in terms of change of direction. It was slower to plane than the single fin but plenty fast running off the wind and was really fun board for ripping turns. For jumping, it took off when going right at the ramp instead turning into one.

New drake straps are the most comfortable straps ever; very cushy and responsive. The finish detail of the board is spectacular, with beautiful graphics.
