A few of the team riders rode the 42″ for several years and said they wanted something just a little shorter, so we made a 40″ that was immediately a hit. Now with the Quad Channels for extra hold and control and new graphics for 2016 including Eric Silverman and Sean Silveira graphics courtesy of Jessica Nichols and lighter weight construction this board is really fun to ride. This new version is really responsive and works well for someone looking for a board that is quick under your feet while you Flow, the Quad channels provide just a little more hold and landing area than the shorter version.
Riders Note: Quad channels are intended to act as a fin system on the nose and tail ends of the board. They can be helpful for riders who are heavy on their back foot, providing more control as it grabs and filters the water flow. Channels can also be useful for riders looking to control their spins or do sharp carves and sprays. The channels are also good for advanced riders, riders who are doing flip/skate style tricks. The channels provide extra assistance for control when landing big tricks.
