The “TORCH” is a “PUERTO” StepUp, squashed down, revved up and with added volume, it’s a daily driver that will shine a light on your everyday sessions.
Keeping the overall performance and feel of the original design we have maximized speed and flow by adding width in the tail and combining it with a deep single concave, creating a more parallel, fuller outline that helps keep speed up through slower sections and tight turns.
The low entry rocker and strategically placed forward volume allow the board to paddle well, get up to speed quickly, and perform extremely well on the open face and in the tube. The “TORCH” provides spark for explosive maneuvers in everyday waves, while being predictable and reliable in all types of surf.
The rocker has been tweaked to provide a more generous sweet spot, which easily generates speed, allows you to control big turns, and balances release out of the lip, while a clean outline flows into a slight hip that allows for responsive direction changes.
Overall, the “TORCH” prompts intuitive & fast surfing. It’s a huge milestone for us, and now, it’s ready for the rest of the world to enjoy anywhere, anytime.
Best in waist to overhead surf of all types the “TORCH” is your daily driver with a high performance edge.
Available from 5’6 to 6’6 and optional as a Thruster or 5 Fin setup, depending on the conditions you intend riding.
