Put IT on Rail!
This shape will provide maximum drive in small waves and rapids. The quad set up takes you to full speed, anything “turn” will become a carve.
This shape really was prove for us, that small waves and rapids demand for very similar type of rockers and outlines. The Train is one of our very original rapid surfing projects that started out as a blend of a Mini Simmons and a Keel Fish, found some quad fins on the way and became a go-to for slopey and chunky waves in sweat- and saltwater. Expect a lot of planing surface and work to do in order to control speed. Enjoy carves and rail combos while all the other guys are pumping their shortboards.
If this ain’t enough for you, trust the Zeitgeist. Just go on a trip and take the train for sustainable fun. Destinations are Euro summer beaches, the med and anywhere you can imagine to lay down some rail tracks.
The Train comes in a quad set-up to set standards considering big carves and drive. For purists, we also offer it in a classical Twin-fin set-up to provide a bit more release.
As long as there is some slope or curve you’ll catch our drift on rail.
