The Shiitake HP
A slimmed down high performance version of the original shiitake
A slimmed down high performance version of the shiitake for those guys that want more of an everyday board and don't want a midlength while still maintaining all that speed and flow. We have made a few changes other than just the dimensions and foil. The biggest adjustment is the concave in the entry of the board, we took out the vee and put in single concave which helps give lift and quicker get up and go on the take off. This gives more of a shortboard feel.
This board is still designed to be ridden with some length but is very customizable, So for example im 5'11 158Lbs and i ride a 5'10 LRS for my regular shortboard but for this model i would go between 5'11 and 6'2 depending on the feel i'm after and the waves i'm riding. The longer you go the smoother and and more drawn out its going to feel. This board also holds pretty good in some bigger waves. It's sweet spot seems to be shoulder high to double over head.
This is designed to be surfed as a twinzer!
