Stinger is a 70’s design; this shape is designed as one board for all waves and is a great alternative to a step down board from a minimal, or for the more soulfull surfer. More volume under the chest area means the board not only paddles like a gem, but carries its momentum extremely well. The benefits of which are: ease of maintaining speed and a smoother ride. The wing acts as a pivot point, allowing the tail to release easily and allowing the board a tighter arc through turns. Authenticity brand hologram.
