First I thought I missed read the price. Then I read it again. Nope, it is still a ridiculous amount. Make no mistake, this is one of the most visually stunning surfboards I have ever seen. The design process is done from start to finish with hydrodynamic engineering so everything from the shape to the fin to the tunnel fin is meticulously planned and crafted. For this board they blended the extraordinary wave gliding power of the larger Baron and the remarkable agility of the Hotkurl board into one. The Vort-X tunnel fin allows for smooth water flow mixing and the Bumpy Leading Edge Foil fin improve speed and control.
