After giving our new RetroFish™ shape a solid go, Blair Conklin wanted to make some modifications he felt would make the board a little more high performance and better suited to his riding style. So he sat down with us and we created the Blairacuda... A board that's narrower than the Retrofish through the nose and middle section of the board for better maneuverability, and features a less drastic swallow tail that Blair says, 'Works almost like a fin". While the board performs well in straight waves and when doing front side turns, he believes a majority of the added benefit from the fish shape is felt when riding backside on either 1ft liners or 6ft wedges. One of the most difficult things to do on any finless board is to hold a line when you are going fast on your heel edge. He's a strong believer that this shape will help you with doing exactly that, while being extremely rippable and versatile for many different conditions. Not to mention this thing side slips like a bat out of hell.
