Surfing is more than just a sport; it’s a lifestyle, an art form in more facets than one. Every surfer knows that the key to unlocking a sessions full full potential lies in the choice of the right surfboard. In the vibrant world of surfboard design our Vinny model stands out as a testament to innovation and community collaboration.
The Inspiration Behind the Board
Vinny, a local surfer and team rider for Radd Action Surf Shop in San Diego, had a vision for his next custom. He sought a board that could be an everyday companion, offering the paddling and speed benefits of a bigger wave gun while maintaining the performance of a standard shortboard. The goal was clear: create a board with a slightly fuller nose outline and a more gradual rocker to provide that extra glide needed to catch steeper waves a little earlier.
Board Design Features
The Vinny boasts a fuller nose outline, making it a versatile choice for surfers seeking an everyday shortboard. The gradual rocker adds a touch of finesse, enhancing the glide to make those steeper waves more accessible. It’s the perfect marriage between the paddling prowess of a bigger wave gun and the high-performance characteristics of a shortboard.
Versatility in Wave Conditions
Designed to excel in steeper and hollower breaks, this board comes into its own wherever the waves range from shoulder-high to doh-worthy. Its adaptability makes it a go-to choice for surfers looking to push their limits and explore a variety of wave conditions.
