Bill Stewart is regarded by most as the father of the Modern longboard. His innovative Hydro Hull designs which feature Bill's iconic bevelled rail and distinctive single to double concave bottom with 2+1 fin set up still set the pace in high performance longboarding.
Ripster TL 0902 (2+1), Orange
The Ripster Tuflite V-Tech is the best of both worlds, it combines classic styling with modern technical design features, making it the ultimate performance single fin! A deep, long blended concave in the nose makes this board paddle with maximum glide to catch every wave. It also creates trim speed and lift down the line, beating sections like you won't believe! The rails are down hard in the tail, then soften as they go forward, making this board turn incredibly well while also being forgiving. The hard edges on the tail release water, giving it ripping speed, and the foil holds it in the pocket. The heavy bee in the tail runs up to the middle of the board, where it's perfectly transitioned into the nose concave. This makes rail-to-rail surfing easier for that classic single-fin style and optimal performance.
