These performance fish's excel in surf that’s knee high to a few feet overhead. Know why? It starts with a lowered nose rocker and wide point further up the board. The single concave to a deep vee off the tail gives these shapes plenty of opportunity to drive and accelerate through flat and slow sections.
We recommend riding these models about eight (8) inches shorter than your regular board (and you’ll still be making those slow sections.)
Shaped exclusively with GREEN blanks which are made with 35% recycled shaping wastes from the shaping bay. Interplastics eco system resin is applied on each RECYCLER model we build.The eco system resin combines both renewable and post consumer material . Also we have added a ultra violet ( UV )hardener so we can cure our boards in a UV light box helping in less VOCS ( volatile organic compounds) in the atmosphere.

Great for bigger surfer’s and anyone interested in going from a longer board to a shorter performance type shape.
