The Pelican has got a big beak and is a greedy one. Enjoy a majestic glide off the top of the point, catch a ton of waves but please resist paddling on everybody’s outside inside.
This shape has been a development based on our experience with the Granturismo series. It offers the glide of a single fin mid yet is a touch more versatile due to the +2 side bite fin option. This will help you to get going in quicker waves and support backhand approaches. A great paddler for sure, the Pelican will help you to catch a lot of waves and improve on your lines and railgame. No need to think in “as small as possible” ways. The tail block is quite pinny, to control the lift and manage more powerful waves. It can be surfed as a single fin in high quality point breaks, or tuned to mushy stuff with a thruster or 2 + 1 set up.
We think it works best though, when surfed with trailers and the single fin positioned for the size of wave you are facing. What do you think? Or choose? Whichever way you go, think TC, think “… Pelican!”, allow the shape to work for you and don‘t oversurf it.
Turns burgers into fun and offers drive when needed.
