9’2 Barb Progressive Noserider with option of Quad, 2+1 or Singlefin setup. Another stunning board with this model being a lot more dialed towards performance, read the overview below. It is glassed with Double 6oz deck and 6oz bottom, so built to last unlike most perfomance boards. It is still nice and light weight with a bit of weight saving from the deck only having a 3/4 patch. But it is not so light that it will fly out underneath your feet on takeoffs when the wind picks up. So built and designed for British waves! It comes in a stunning Olive Green tint and is finished with a smooth matt spray.
Everything about this board has been designed to increase performance and maneuverability to help execute large powerful cutbacks and still have a good noseride. The bottom consists of a deep concave throughout the nose and belly switching to double concave in the last 1/3 of the board and flattening out behind center fin to allow water release. The rails are beveled throughout the nose slowly decreasing to just in front of the fins where it turns sharp, this is to help prevent the nose and rails from digging when the board is being surfed of the tail and helps with rail to rail transfer. The Shape consists of a nicely tucked rounded pintail but still has plenty of width in the nose for early takeoffs and noseriding. The rocker is not ridiculous unlike most performance longboards which will feel like they are pushing water when paddling. The Barb has a nicely curved continuous rocker throughout with slight more kick in tail to allow for extra lift in the nose when its wanted.
