Check out this sexy and slick small wave speed machine surfboard the USC Convert .
This Hybrid performance fish based of some old school principles is a custom
5'8 by 20 1/8 by 2 5/8 ( 32.50 litres ) .
Designed for small beach breaks and those day when conditions are marginal and you are looking for any speed you can muster the flattish rocker , plenty of foam disguised into this plan-shape, which will help you get through those dead sections with speed to burn .
The double flyers squash tail is quiet deceiving as it actually hides a wider tail pod that allows for stability which is important as this model with its single into double concave bottom goes really fast . Really Fast !
With the added foam under the back foot the flyers give the board a quick release break point giving your turns that extra pop . It kind of feels like its glued to your back foot when you push and jam this board and lay it on rail through your turns .
This model has been extremely popular therefore we offer it in the USC technology with the carbon rails or in the Premium Range from $695 , which is your standard PU foam with a central wooden stringer . All technologies are laminated in polyester resin , because they go the best , feel the best and last longer from our factory !
This little blade is going to leave its mark with its fluorescent racing stripes colour combination .
The Convert model surfboard kind of battles with the super popular Blend model but with its wider tail pod, semi fuller rail volume, and overall litres, it can be ridden a lot shorter . Its super fast and stable and offers a lot of drive out of turns but has a unique release with the double flyers squash tail set up .
It's now available in the Premium Range as well as its original design the patented carbon rail techonolgy USC Range. You now have the option of of the stringer-less carbon rail or the more traditional with central wooden stringer .
