The combination of the straighter outline and slight bumps create speed and control points to the wider tail, increasing maneuverability and stability. We kept a moderate/low rocker throughout the curve of the board for speed generation and paddle power.
We removed the 6 channels of the Wide J 6 and went with 4 shallower channels off the tail to keep the desired down the line speed and hold of a 6 channel while allowing it to be more forgiving in and out of maneuvers.
4X4 is best ridden with a quad set up. This set up combined with the channels works seamlessly. 4×4 = Four Channels, Four Fins, For Fun.
With the 4 x 4 design we took our Wide J 6 model and modified the double wings to slight double bumps giving the board a more forgiving feel while keeping the desired straighter outline
