Function :

Blow it up in all conditions with Shortboard style that also paddles easily.

Introduction :

The Curve Pro 7'11, 8'4, 8'9 and 9'4 are size variations based on same shape in different volumes and lengths design to adapt to the needs of different sized riders. You can choose one adjusted to your weight for thrashing waves or size up in order to have a more comfortable ride.

In any case the Curve Pro are Boards 100% dedicated to killing it : rollers, top turns, slashing, driving cut backs and airs in solid driving waves.

The Curve Pro is made for those who want to surf aggressively while maintaining fluid paddling. Ideal for the surfer weighing less than 70kg and suitable for one up to 85kg.

Her pronounced rocker allows for smooth paddling, her kicked nose cuts through the waves and chop easily, her row is moderate and drops into wave easily due to her speed and narrow nose.

While surfing she dominates the sketchiest drop ins almost by herself! Two or three strokes and it's on, the rocker absorbs the slope and she locks in ready for some wicked bottom turns.

The narrow tail offers serious handling precision and some magical projections. The rails are thin, especially at the tail to insure pure "surf" handling...... she's built to collect turns!! Once you start pumping your legs her speed and flexability explose, she's a very aggressive board at ease in all conditions, even in hollow and steep waves. The faster and strong the wave.... the more at ease she is. A dynamique surfer will exploit her even in the sloppiest of wave conditions without even having to push her hard.

She was born to snap it off the lip, pull off rollers and to lay down some sick carves. The rail to rail is instictive, very close to a regular shortboard, she loves getting vertical and kissing the lip, she's a REAL high performance board !!!

The Curve Pro 8'9 is a high performance in a shortboard form but with garanteed paddling comfortand excellent steering.
