Proven design concepts from the classic nose riding models of the 60′s blended with current surfboard design and production methodologies, results in a one-of-a-kind, classic. The wide nose utilizing a flat planning surface underneath, provides for the longest, tightest nose rides possible. Modern tail-rocker, light weight, and a custom single fin, allow this model to rip in any conditions.

Designed the way that shapers wish they could have built noseriders back in the 60′s, the ‘BA’ model is way too modern to be considered ‘Retro’. Its robust outline and functional hips are offset with delicately knifed 50/50 rail resulting in a perfect release point for adequate speed and maneuverability. A conservative nose-to-tail rocker and thoughtfully foiled volume encourage smooth trims through critical sections with ultimate control on the tip. Nose 18 1/2″ Width 23″ Tail 15″ with a single fin.
