12197B 8'0" ALPHA PIN #10
Fin: Single box, fiberglass fin included
Color/Finish: Dark aqua tint T+B, gloss/polish
This board's name derives from ALPHA being the first letter of the greek alphabet, giving the nod to the late 60's when pintail shortboards first came on to the scene marking very beginning of the shortboard revolution. This board features a wide-point foward, soft rail with a slight roll to single concave and heavy vee in the tail. The Alpha Pin is FAST and SMOOTH, and extremely easy to catch waves with excellent maneuverability for a board of its type. The model dictates a style of clean-line surfing.
