[ 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.
