Hornet™

The Hornet™ Shape is new to our line up for 2018. It is the culmination of over a year of R&D with our elite team of riders to take our most popular Hybrid Shape and make it THAT much better. We've taken the Hybrid Shape and drawn in the tail profile to make it narrower and slightly more pointed. This creates a shape that performs much like the Hybrid, BUT is ultra responsive under the lip and has extra 'hold' on the face of larger, steeper waves. Ideal for average to above average conditions. This shape will not disappoint!

G.O.A.T Construction

What is the G.O.A.T Construction™? In the sports world G.O.A.T is a common acronym for 'Greatest of All Time', and we think there's a strong argument to be made that our skimboards built with this construction are just that, and here's why: These boards are built with 3 layers of Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber, Premium Epoxy Resin, and reinforced EXCLUSIVELY with S-Glass Fiberglass. This results in a board that's noticeably lighter, stiffer, and stronger than our industry leading Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy construction. Think of the G.O.A.T Construction™ as our Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy on steriods. We've been secretly testing this construction under the feet of our top professionals for well over a year now with fantastic results! And now this construction is available for you!!

Key Features of the G.O.A.T Construction™:

• 3 Full Sheets of Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber

• Premium Epoxy Resin

• Reinforced EXCLUSIVELY with multiple layers of S-Glass Fiberglass

• Ultra High Density PVC Foam Core

• Double Wrapped Rails • Every Trick in the Book + Some

• Size, Shape, and Thickness Options for ANY Size Rider in ANY Type of Conditions

    3/4" Tapered to 5/8" Thickness

    3/4" Tapered to 5/8" thickness means that the center of the core is 3/4" thick and thins out to 5/8" (roughly) in the nose and tail. This creates added buoyancy while keeping the board maneuverable, just not quite as responsive as the 5/8". This thickness is typically more ideal for slight below average to slightly above average wave height and strength.

    Hybrid Rocker

    The Hybrid Rocker is what we put on 90% of the boards we produce, and is the most versatile skimboard rocker for skimming anything from the Gulf Coast of Florida to Cabo. It clocks in roughly at 2.25" in the nose and about .125" in the tail with a fairly good size flat spot in the middle of the board. This allows the board to transition from sand to water easily, be super fast, and turn on a dime. If you aren't sure, this would be our pick!

    Standard Build

    Our industry leading standard build

    NT Finish™

    This finish combines the strength of our classic textured finish, with great cosmetics for improved looks with no compromise in strength. Some sanding required for proper traction adhesion.

    Flat Deck

    This deck option is the standard skimboard deck option seen on most skimboards.
