We’ve been making diamond tailed surfboards since the late 1980’s. These were High Performance long boards built to ride in contests. So here’s the design concept: When the corner of a square tail – which is the point of drive – is moved forward it moves the end of the outline curve forward. In essence, the board becomes shorter by that amount. We’ve been using this design trick for 2 1/2 decades and it is exciting to apply this idea to the SS DT.
This a super design by Tim Stamps, for small waves that will be a great choice for an average sized beach break with some open faces. It is a single fin that is a worthy stepping stone from our Mid Range & Transitional style boards.
