The Shrike is all about high performance "surfing with a kite."
It will allow you to snap tightly in the pocket, or go way beyond vertical and fin-free.
It will square off the bottom tightly and with enough speed to fit twice the full-power-turns into a normal section - which allows you to keep tension on your lines and drift your kite.
Works great as a daily driver but really comes alive in bigger, more powered conditions.
Extra glass for durability but still maintains true surfboard weight and flex.
MARKO composite “iFoam” for chop-dampening control, flex, maneuverability
Thruster, quad, 5-fin

Because humans are involved in the process of shaping, finishing, and glassing each one of our boards, there may be slight variations in dimensions, even for stock boards.
