The 2014 T-REX was developed for a new breed of riders focusing on aerial tricks and fun, poppy changes in direction. This unique, progressive shape is trending in the surf industry with the top pro riders. Patrick Rebstock prefers this next generation surf shape because it makes it easier to spin and flip tricks with less swing weight and has a tight precise feel to blast upwind.
Everyday riders will love the shape because it makes it easier to catch waves by reducing the tendency of perling as you drop into your line. Once youre in the wave, the aggressive 5 fin setup gives you more drive and acceleration without working as hard as a quad or tri fin setup. This unique setup also gives you the option of configuring the fins how you want. Ride it as a tri for a more free, skate feel or as a quad if youre looking to track more.
The new T-REX is the perfect travel board. The shorter sizes make it easy to take with you to your favorite wave destination and fits in a wider variety of travel bags. Each of the sizes ride like a larger board without the weight and hassle. The single concave makes the board ride super precise, but forgiving for all levels of rider. The tail shape allows for sharp carving in any type of condition.
Our entire line of surf boards features art by progressive surfer and artist Phil Goodrich.
