Originally this board was designed for Francis who needed a contest board that was versatile in all conditions, with awesome paddle power and maneuverability.  A lot of time and development was put into getting the best performance to paddle ratio in this design. Today its one of our most popular all-round short boards. 

The Short Black has a lowish entry rocker for paddle and speed and a standard (medium) tail rocker for maneuverabilty and late take-offs.  Single to double concaves create speed and the ability to make critical turns.  This board goes well in most conditions from small beachies to good sized reefs in the 2-6FT+ range.  The 5 fin set-up allows you to ride it as a thruster or quad providing further versatility. 

Fast, smooth, responsive and a great all-round traveller the Short Black is for the intermediate to advanced surfer or the heavier surfer wanting performance.
