The Barque is our smaller mid-length option. It carries plenty of volume so paddles well and catches waves easily, and its full nose makes it a stable surfboard – particularly in smaller and weaker waves. The Barque’s relatively straight rail line and pulled in tail also make for a fast board down the line when the surf gets a bit bigger, so it could well be the only surfboard that you need – for any season, at home or abroad.
7’2” x 21¾” x 2¾” – 48l
Designed to be ridden as a single fin, but can also be used as a 1+2 (with side bites).
Originally designed as a shape to replicate a customer’s favourite surfboard, the Barque seemed to perfectly plug the gap for those who were on the fence about either the Jetty or Island Hopper.
A forgiving rocker line, nice wide template and a nicely rounded pin tail give this board ample planing surface to generate speed from and provides a stable platform for the beginner to intermediate surfer. This could well end up becoming your one-board quiver, that is just at home in playful summer waves as it is through the winter as you push your surfing to the next level.
A flat bottom with ‘V’ out the tail allows it to roll nicely from rail to rail whilst maintaining speed through turns.
