A narrowed tip profile and 3.2" swallowtail define the easy edging slalom-style Hawk. Removing surface area from the tip allows the board to roll and hold on edge and the swallowtail speeds up turn finish and increases holding power by keeping more effective edge in the water behind the balance point. The retractable fins can give you the utmost grip when dropped down, or loosen up the board when hidden. Deep-seated orthotic knee wells on the dual-density pad reduce fatigue by keeping you in place. The single locking strap functions easily and efficiently to get you ripping quicker.
