The Belly Tanker under went an update over the summer. The goal was to streamline its outline in order to wake it up and give it more speed along with improve on its performance. The outline draws its form from an old fish template nose and the Bucky Model tail. The rocker is relatively flat keeping a significant portion of the board in the water resulting in more speed. It also has a flat deck which retains volume out to the rail. The rail is a turned down rail with a hard edge about 40% of the way up. It is incredibly fast, paddles well and turns on a dime. They are designed for waves in the waist to overhead range but they aren’t afraid of a slightly bigger wave as well.
