This surfboard has carved a new style of surfing and has pioneered a new market of surfboards sold today. the lc-3, which we have been making since 1980, has picked up many nicknames along the way such as, mini log, mini egg and the fun board. this surfboard has many benefits to its shape. the template has a continuous curve throughout its length allowing the surfboard to give a smooth and fluid transitions from rail to rail. the width in the surfboard will allow you to foot work the length of the surfboard and also help increase your wave count in those crowded conditions. from beach breaks to the reefs, this surfboards versatility will make it the most used surfboard in your quiver. the paddle to performance ratio of this steed is a stunner! you will not believe how many waves you will catch, and how much pure fun you will have. the wing version of the lc-3 is a tad faster down the line, but not quite as loose rail to rail. More powerful surfers love this wing and subtle squash tail, but reality is both tail setups (round pin and wing squash)are a blast to ride and the performance characteristics between the two are very similar due to the full curve of the squash.
