The Mutant joined the Gemini Series in the late 1990's, about the same time as the Tube Dawg. The bat-nose design of the Mutant wasn't an attempt to dissuade the nay-sayers of the Gemini, but the creation of a second-generation version.
The Mutant is created using the same template and design attributes as the Gemini. The noticeable variation in the nose is the major difference, and its effect on volume distribution and rail line created some minor tweaks further back in the board. Of course, it still have the "double thruster" fin setup of all Gemini Series boards.
Small-medium wave mastery. Fast, down-line the surfing in waves under head high, though slower than the Gemini. The Mutant II step-up version is another beast all together, loved by several long-time Gemini riders.
This board carries more foam than traditional outlines, which means a 2-6" reduction in length is a good starting point. Traditionally shaped with a bat-tail, although thumbtail has been popular with riders as well. Comes standard with quad fin setup (double thruster), 5-fin options available.
