Beginners will appreciate its stability, and more experienced surfers will love its evolutionary nature.
The relatively wide outline combined with a tight rocker provides the right characteristics for a smooth learning curve. Easy to paddle, it will be easy to get started.
Although it's a big board with 58L, it's still very versatile. So you can use the board in more powerful waves and start attacking your first maneuvers.
