This board is for the advanced rider weighing between 185-200lbs. It was built for a high level of performance all around. It has a slightly widen nose outline which provides a great landing for surfers who shuffle up their stance when they take to flight. On the flip side if you prefer going for the tube, the tail is slightly pulled in which gives you hold in the pocket. This board just has a good balance; balance between hold and release; between speed and control. The nose rocker is enough to keep your nose slightly out of the water but not enough to produce significant resistance. The nose is really designed for speed and boosting whereas the tail is more designed for tube riding; airs and barrels all day.
