[ The "Kestrel" ]

The Kestrel is a cross between a contemporary shortboard and a classic Speed Egg. Following the historical theme of crossing a shortboard with a longboard to yield the classic hybrid, the Kestrel mixes the gene pool another step to bring short board performance to a maximum surface area - high volume design. This version of the variables offers great wave catching features, great paddling mobility in the line up, and stability. The Kestrel features extra surface area and volume combined with progressive contemporary rockers, profiles, outlines, bottom contours, and rails. One of the most versatile designs developed to date currently enjoyed by groms from 4 to 70 plus years of age. Design features - Rockers: Speed Box or continuous Profiles: Moderate foil with significant volume integrated into the designs to support the surfer, accelerate and carry speed. Outlines: Any one of the classic configurations - squash, thumb, swallow, and round pin. Bottom Contours: Shallow vee or tri plane entry, tri plane wide point, and panel vee wide point to tail or moderate spiral vee wide point to tail. Rails: Vary with displacement and surfer's size amd technique - fuller rails for technique that generates greater displacement or larger surfers - thinner rails for a more light footed technique or smaller surfer.
