The Boss will have a big influence in any line-up when it comes to catching waves. Designed to be an affordable, user-friendly longboard that’s spec’d appropriately for easy riding with an emphasis on stability, control and smooth turning.
Built using our XB (Epoxy Bamboo) construction which produces a light, extremely durable surfboard that’s particularly strong on the deck, and has beautiful aesthetic appeal.
OUTLINE: While not too dissimilar to other longboards on the market, the Boss has a very balanced outline with loads of surface area up front for more capable nose riders, a parallel mid-section which creates a huge trimming zone, and enough taper in the tail to break a line and turn smoothly.
ROCKER: Nice and low through the entry makes for fast paddling, which equates to more waves, tick! Relaxed through the middle, but with enough curve to promote a nice turning arc on the wave face. And finally, there’s a little extra lift in the tail to make turning easier for surfers moving up in their abilities.
CONTOURS: While most performance longboards have complex concaves for rapid movement and response, the Boss has a subtle concave in the entry running into raised vee/double concave through the tail. This is designed to help promote stability when standing forward and deliver a feeling of pivotal sensitivity when turning right off the tail.
FOIL: Designed with plenty of volume through the nose and tail, and also out towards the rails to provide added stability and make this board simple to ride regardless of your skill level.
PERFORMANCE: This is the perfect entry level longboard due to the volume allocations, the ease at which it rides, and of course the price. However, more savvy surfers will tap into the true versatile nature of his board and its reliability across so many different types of waves. If you’re a traveller, or just like having one dependable longboard in your quiver, this is it.
