6'1" Graham Smith Retro Swallow Fish

$ 600.00

Few shapers know how to combine the old with the new like South African master Graham Smith, and this brand new 6'1" is the proof!  One of the pioneers of the South African surf scene, Graham has been making boards for over 50 years.  Being the father of Top-3 surfer Jordy Smith kept Graham up to date with design and performance, and nobody is as good at blending tried and true retro designs with all the modern bells and whistles.  



From Graham Smith - 

"This Model  offers a wide range in size selection that will accommodate small, medium or even head high waves when used by good surfers. The outline consists of a wider/curvier outline with an old school wide nose and tail, offering more volume, putting the emphasis on easy paddling when catching waves.  The deep modern concave, low entry rocker, will generate speed – making this board quick off the mark, and making turns easier. The moderate tail lift and double concave Vee in the tail allows for easier rail-to-rail transition, keeping the looseness under your feet when needed. We suggest Thruster 3 fin setups for learners and quad 5-fin setup for intermediate to good surfers, and ridden 2″ to 6″ shorter than your regular board. This model is recommended as a Swallow tail only – the swallow tail shape helps to sink the tail when pressure is applied thus giving you more hold and less drift through turns."
