The Blade is the go-to board when the waves are a little bigger or more powerful but still too small to break out the real guns (see our Man Board if you're talking big waves!). Essentially a blown up version of the Pro Ho, iit has slightly more nose and tail rocker with inverted vee from the nose through to the fins where it transitions to flat then very slight vee behind the front fins. The aggressive outline promotes controlled speed and tight radius turning, while the additional rail line and rocker allows it to fit perfectly in heavier surf. This step-up model is a travel necessity.
Head high to double overhead plus waves, critical drops, and tube rides.
Up to 7'6'', usually 4-6'' longer than your standard shortboard.
