Designed as your first legit ‘short board’, The Panther has more width from end-to-end compared to similar shortboards of equal size. This provides enough stability for surfers transitioning into the shortboard category, so they can quickly and confidently jump to their feet. Once up and riding, The Panther will nurture your skills as you start to perform tighter turns and explore steeper parts of the wave. Essentially, this is a board that will fast-track your progression and skills. The Panther is also a great small model for heavier surfers wanting a more buoyant groveler.
While still having the appearance and turning benefits of a shorter board, the generous outline and ample volume over compensates for the rider’s skill level to make surfing on a shorter board easier.
Low rocker for easy entry into waves, and to help keep speed and forward momentum in softer waves.
