This board is for seriously big waves. If you're thinking of riding
Wiamea Bay, or some monster local reef, you'll need one of these.
They are long and narrow for hanging in and carving long controlled
rail turns - forget about snap backs. They are thicker to allow
you to paddle fast and get into the wave as early as possible, ready
for that awesome drop.
Be warned; once you own one of these you can never use a lack of
the right equipment as an excuse for not paddling out on those hell
