The Xianz is a great all around high performance short board. With a pretty flat entry rocker and slightly wider nose outline it goes great in mush. This board has a noticeable domed deck with a medium rail for sensitivity. The first ten inches of the bottom are flat going into a single concave thru the fins with 3 inches of flat out the tail. This board is a great paddler and gets up and going quick. It also gets a lot of drive from the front foot for those who are front footed surfers and move around on thier board a lot. This board will be easy to paddle and will keep its glide. This board is meant to be surfed in waves head high to over head. Available from 5'4" to 6'6"
