Perfect for someone that is looking for a perforce of a shortboard but wants the flotation of a hybrid board or fishboard. This totally fill that that gap of between a high performance board like the Sub Buggy and the Puddle Jumper.
It grovels well in small waves and performes just as well in slightly overhead waves.
What does Libtech and Matt Biolos Say?
The Shortround bridges the gap between easy riding “cheater” surfboards and the high performance shortboard. The speed comes from a low entry rocker and wide-ish nose, with a forward wide point and generous concave throughout. The performance comes from a moderate, but not flipped up, tail rocker, a double concave through the fins and the same sort of modern bump squash tail that you would find on a typical contest style, small wave HP shortboard. All combined, it doesn’t look like anything fancy and there are no gimmicks, but some times less is more, and there’s a lot packed into this little surfboard. “A skatey speedster with a high performance hook. Fast and flat, but without the fat.” ~ Matt Biolos
