This board was designed for high performance ripping in knee high to overhead waves. Jay has thinned out the rails drastically and added a bit of flip in the tail and nose so I can fit it into those crucial sections. I usually ride this design in a round tail because of it's versatility. It has great carving ability and hold for those good days but can fly down the line and release when it's small. I use single 4OZ glass to keep it light and to give it plenty of flex. This board is my all-around weapon of choice for almost everyday of the year.
