The Panther

PANTHER (High Performance)

Adapted from the “TORCH” into a more refined, high performance board. The “PANTHER” is designed to give all surfers the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board, but with a sleek, high performance edge.

The “PANTHER”is an ultra-modern short board and features a performance outline with a twist – the wide point at center rather then behind as with most high performance models.

This unique plan-shape allows for a short rail line and this combined with a pulled in nose and added rocker through the last 12 inches keeps it loose and free through critical turns.

It has a gentle hip for added sensitivity and looseness, and the squash tail is pulled in to tighten the turning radius and improve vertical surfing capability. The bottom is a single concave and features an aggressive flip in exit rail rocker to give maximum speed and constant drive.

The thickness flow sets the “PANTHER” apart, keeping the volume more forward of center but not too much. The added foam under the chest area helps paddle power and gives extra float under your front foot in slower sections, meaning easy flow.

This high performance short board is not only ready for competition surfing, big airs and tail blows but also allows for the heaviest turns you can imagine.

Intermediate surfers will elevate their performance levels and it will bring out the best in more advanced surfers. Ride the “PANTHER” your height to an inch over, in your favorite high performance dimensions.
