The Sword is the board between your step-up (Gig) and your gun (Massive Attack), often referred to as a semi-gun. The Sword brings semi-gun versatility to a whole new level because of its high performance design. All our team riders use the Sword when they need that increase in length in order to paddle into big bombs but do not want to sacrifice function. Because the Sword has similar characteristics to our standard shortboards (concave, rocker), it does not feel bulky or hard to turn. The Sword should be ridden 6 to 10 inches bigger than your standard shortboard and have similar width and thickness dimensions.
