A 6’2” hybrid, the Swift has been designed to balance easy paddling and wave catching ability with manoeuvrability for more progressive surfing. With a modern rocker line and more pinched rails, this surfboard turns well and with a high degree of control. It has a more rounded outline than our traditional fish models with those turns in mind, but without sacrificing speed. The Swift features a swallowtail so that a wider tail pod is possible without losing hold through turns. We think it looks more like the tail of a swift, and with swifts being birds that travel thousands of miles each year, visiting these shores over the summer months, this travel board named itself.

A great progressive hybrid, we recommend a thruster fin set-up to make the most of its drive and manoeuvrability.

6'2 x 211/2” x 27/8” - 41.3 litres

Building your board with your own two hands and literally knowing it inside and out makes it much more than just another purchase; you develop a deeper connection with your surfboard.
