The Booster by Becker is more of a small wave board. lower entry rocker then the short board. added volume forward of the front foot with a more pronounced foil to accommodate added concave which runs through the whole of the board. single to double out the tail. hard boxy rails in the tail becoming very soft and forgiving just forward of center. ride this board 1"-2" shorter then your normal short board, 1/2"+ wider and about 1/8" thicker. designed with the aerial surfer in mind.
