& Rapid Surfing
FACES OF SURFING & RAPID SURFING
We don’t care about whether you are into sweat or saltwater, into running or stationary waves, a surfer, a rapid surfer, a snowboarder on summer vacation or a skateboarder with a need for refreshment. We care about shooting up and down a face, finding a good line and splash some water. In order to make this work, the shape you are riding needs to fit the curve you are on. This is where waves and rapids and their request for designing shapes are meeting. So, when considering a shape of ours, please make sure to check the waves and rapids profile we had in mind when designing this board. It will help you to assess whether it fits the spot you want to surf.
STYLES ON BOARD
While lines and maneuver placement might differ from waves and rapids and back, the moves and basic principles are very much the same. Apply pressure to the rail to make speed. Find release while shooting up the face, change from one rail to the other and apply your drive into a carve or finish tight into a full stop with a snap. Your head and shoulders will provide maneuver direction, your core-strength defines the extent of radness of your maneuver, while your legs keep pushing or releasing rail and fins. The major small difference for us, how you will handle the shape under your feet specifically and which style of surfing this shape supports. Hence the little graphics provided to give you an idea what surf-style the board model you are looking at supports.
