"There's nothing better than seeing a shaper combine inspirations from surfing's experimental era with a contemporary refinement. The panel vee bottom that's derived from the Hot Generation and Evolution eras of the late 60's, provides an added stability to the effortless glide of a displacement hull. This grounding aspect of the vee bottom plays a key roll in the stabilization of inter-board navigation - such as cross stepping and coffining - as well as inter-wave movements including bottom turns, carves, and the like. Clocking in at 8'8" and 24 inches wide, the surface area of this board is vast, allowing it to coast at a much higher cruising speed in comparison to other mid lengths whether you're paddling or trimming, it's like driving a six cylinder vs an eight cylinder. The vibrational frequency emitted by this grounded, high velocity sculpture is extremely unique as the two qualities are seldom existing harmoniously. "
