 Dhalberg 5’5″

Here’s what Hayley said about the Dharma 2.0 and Bulb.
“The Dharma was great to ride it feels like a blend between a performance short board and a fish. The quad set up made it really stable and faster than a normal fish. The Butt-Tail makes it easy to turn and I felt really confident on it in the medium sized waves. The Bulb was similar in the way it felt on the waves a nice mix of glide and sensitivity.”
Here’s what Hayley said about the Maui Foil.
“This board was a wedding gift to Richard and Amy from Bing surfboards and I was really excited to give it a go as it was such a special board. Bing surfboards have been creating amazing surfboards since 1949 and this late 60s classic single fin replica is no exception. I really enjoyed riding this board because it gave me the same paddle power I have on my mal but was far more responsive and faster across the face of the wave. I was able to take off further up the lineup and make sections across the reef that I previously couldn’t make.”
