A 7’2” midlength tracker with a refined, pulled in, template and a rounded pintail. The Coaster is designed to shine in anything from waist-high peelers to overhead points and reefs. At 21½” wide and 2¾” thick it’s fast to paddle, handling “meatier” waves with ease, and the drawn out tail smooths turns and holds in well on steeper waves or small hollow runners. This board is fast, tight, and a joy to ride whether you’re cruising in true summer style or rolling into some thicker autumn swells.
7’2” x 21½” x 2¾” – 46.4 l
Designed to be ridden as a single fin in small surf, but comes alive as a quad, thruster or 1+2 in bigger surf.
“Had a brilliant couple of surfs at Porthtowan last night and this morning. Small, but nice for getting the feel for the new board. I love it – the weight is similar to my dad’s 9ft mal, so it gets a similar amount of momentum. But, because it’s so much shorter it’s infinitely easier to turn. I think it’ll be perfect for the quick little runners at my home break in Aus.
Thanks again, it’s better than I could have hoped for!”
The Coaster came about when James, Mat, Chris and our friend Gideon asked ourselves the question over a cup of tea in the workshop, “If we could only travel and surf with one board, what would it be?”
It’s a departure from the other mid-length boards that we produce in that it’s less rounded and definitely aimed more towards high performance in as wide a range of waves as possible, rather than erring towards stability or ease of use.
The wide point is slightly forwards of centre to aid paddling and planing speed and works well with a pulled in rounded pin tail that retains great control when the waves get a bit bigger and naturally finds smooth, classic lines on the wave.
