[ Abalones ]

Abalones excel in small to moderate sized waves. This design emphasizes volume and surface area to address these conditions. They are extremely wide and thick with dramatically full dimensions in the nose and tail. The design was developed in an effort to blend speed, performance, and glide in small to moderate sized waves. Volume and surface area are maximized to afford surfers a very user friendly and playful board. As noted, Abalones are extremely short, wide, and thick. The low rocker profile, extremely full outline, flat or concave deck with full rail profile, single to double concave bottom contours are all integrated into the design to maximize performance. The result is a barrel of fun and a fresh new approach to small and moderate waves. Design features - Rockers: Speed Box or Relaxed rockers. Profiles: Notably full foil with volume throughout to support the surfer in marginal conditions. Outlines: Squash or Diamond Tail. Bottom Contours: Moderate single concave begins in the nose, deep double concave with maximum depth near the leading edge of rail fins fading through the fins to the tail. Deck & Rails: Flat or concave deck carrying thickness out to the rail. Full volume boxy rail.
