Welcome to the Thrill Ride! This compact craft is actually a highly functional surfboard, short and easy to paddle, so don’t be put off by it’s strange outline looks. Kelly's been toiling with this design for years now. It's so basic in design - Straighter, narrower and flatter is the formula for speed. This template consists of a straighter parallel-rail regarding it's outline shape, and blends from nose to tail - basically similar measurements at both ends. There so many tail or nose variations one can turn too - it's kind of a cosmetic preference of your choice I guess. Most commonly used is the cut-off nose with a V.tip-swallow tail with eliminates drag somewhat, and that large tail area, generates speed straight off the bat. Channels are an option as they run between the fins, up to the mid wide-point on the bottom. Thus, giving us and smoother and quicker water release, whilst lifting the tail! This functional design brings back the fun into your surfing and allows you to experiment with new tricks or airs. The low entry rocker is basically designed for speed, as the parallel rails, makes this board extremely fast, putting speed and looseness under your feet at will. The wide V.tip-swallow makes pivoting easier as well, keeping it loose through turns. We have found that thruster fin setups work well as we cluster the fins for better hold; however, a 5-fin quad setup will allow you to take on more wave size options, making this craft very versatile in smaller, or flatter waves.
