The Thing

#Thing

+

The Thing is a bizarre little beast. Very curvy with a wide planeshape throughout the front half of the board. For high performance in smaller powerful waves but handles the bigger stuff as well. The ideal board for small reef breaks or sucky beachies with pockety waves. Order 3 to 6 inches shorter than your normal shortboard. Order large dimensions for the person seeking that intermediate range.

CONCAVE
Single through to double concave with slight V-exit that maximises rail to rail control.

ROCKER
Medium entry to lower exit rocker allows for modern style carves and turns for punchy surf and also goes good in small waves.

RAILS
Medium boxy.

NOSE & TAIL
Fuller nose area as it's a  longer board in a shorter outline.

FIN SET-UP
Future and FCS thruster positioned for easy surfing.

TECHNOLOGY
PU Burford blank. Double lapped 4x4x4 Hexcel glass. Silmar polyester resin. also LC6 Carbon tape bottom/carbon mesh deck 4x4x4 double lapped epoxy with stringerless EPS core.

RECOMMENDED FINS
Diamond Fin to generate speed in small conditions. You can add the quad fins in very small waves to increase speed.
