This is the all round high performance shortboard. It will provide
maximum performance from even the smallest waves (as long as they
have some shape or reasonable power) and keep on delivering in waves
up to double overhead, or more. We call it the shifter because it
moves you anywhere you want to go - and fast! It delivers on manoeuvrability
and speed through the right combination of width and length, with
a moderate rocker that Nick likes to combine with a mid range concave.
The concave provides an extended planing surface while maintaining
the rocker in the rails.
