Matt Penn has been making and constantly refining these elliptical style summer concept boards for a long time now first the x-wing series then the red devil, bulls’ eye etc.… always with performance surfing in small waves the number one priority.
This latest creation has slightly altered straighter tail rocker combined with a deep vee double concave and a flat entry rocker with full nose outline and a more tapered forward rail so the wider nose outline bites in pushes away when initiating your turns but with solid drive from the back end of the board from the double concave with vee bottom configuration.
Running a slight hip just before the fins frees up the width the board carries in the outline which does two things a) Breaks the outline to enhance response and b) adds some drive off the straighter rail line which runs into a squash round tail for an overall smooth feel.
Bridging the gap between your modern small wave performance board and your summer concept grovel board. Ride 3” to 4 “shorter than your regular board.
