Description

Introduction :

The Catch is THE Board for killing it ion Freestyle with a Surf Board.

The Catch Shape has evolved quite a bit, notably with a large squash tail for pop and an almost fully squared nose. The Board is more rectangular for maximising you footing in the wind which optimises landings. Another big + of this Board : its monstrous pop.

Its Rocker is slightly more marked than the Catch 2SK,  but is still considered a low Rocker that gives serious stability and quick planing.

For control, its volumes been reduced with a minimum thickness through the tips.  You’ve got solid footing on the Board, full control, no bouncing.

On the flat it’s a very nervous Board, ideal for Freestyle and upwind between two tricks. That’s her favourite playground. Her impulses are demonic. She’s truly a great platform.

In the surf she’s relatively stiff. This means she has speed and impulse that are killer but her rocker will limit her in hollow waves. You can power surf with energy and for an aerial style.

Built in FSP for a better compromise between weight/solidity and equipped with a 3D Function Pad that covers 2/3rds of the deck for comfort and maximum grip. The 3 Boxes are FCS II, for more rigidity and easier, tool-less, in and out.

The Freestyle Board par excellence!
