The Pukas Parachute is a high performance surfboard hidden in an alternative package
Don’t let that wide swallow tail fool you, the Pukas Parachute is new school performance short board. It has a lot of hold, a lot of drive and is very maneuverable in almost any type of surf. It´s a great all round shape for people who are looking to mix it up from their everyday shortboard.
This high performance shape comes in an alternative package with a pulled in nose for easy transitions that is counterbalanced by high tail volume. The extremely wide 8 inch (20cm) straight swallow tail drives speed throughout turns thanks to its further back fin placement.
The low entry rocker increases the take off speed and syncs with its performance rails to create optimum control. As water travels toward the tail it passes through 4 strategically placed belly channels giving bite in the wave while maintaining maneuverability by its aggressive tail rocker. Because of the width of this board it can be ridden up to 3-4 inches shorter than your standard performance shape with a similar volume.
Named after Taz´s favorite hobby after surfing (skydiving), the Pukas Parachute is the model this adrenaline junky shaper is most excited about for 2016.
This is Taz. Parachute loving.
