The Speed R1 as the name suggests was made for fast and quick turning in tight pockets. This board you would order 2″ shorter than your normal shortboard. It has a low nose rocker and a higher tail rocker with a deep single concave throughout the board. It has a wider point up front of the board and a wider tail 12″ up front tail with a pull in swallow tail. Super fast and great for new school surfing.
