The Brute is going to own the line-up when it comes to performance and wave count in the smaller swell. Designed for optimum performance and fun in average to weaker surf, its wider outline means it has a high surface area and lower volume, making it ideal for faster paddling, and more stability which allows you to catch waves earlier but still turn with ease. “It’s going to paddle like a mini mal and surf like a shortboard”. The Brute has a double concave throughout, combined with thinner rails at the tail, helping to maintain speed over smaller flatter waves without sacrificing the responsiveness of the board when turning. The Brute has a traditional shortboard rocker line but, because of the double concave and the higher surface area, it planes like a dream and turns like a shortboard. Its rail profiles are thinner and allow harder turns on the board while keeping the speed created from the outline. This board is ideal for knee to shoulder high waves and the 5 fin set-up allows for unlimited fun with a quad or thruster setup.
