Choose Your Surfboard

The Resin8 Scoop

The key to surfing is to choose the right surfboard. If you´re not a Pro, you will find it difficult to choose the right surfboard for the right conditions. With my 2012 guide I can help you a little on the way. Each surfboard is unique in its own way, and one of my favorite surfboard this year is The Resin8 Shortboard.

The Resin8 comes in six diffrent dimensions and is designed to be ridden about 2 to 4 inches shorter than a surfers’ average shortboard. There’s also a bit more volume in the boards outline and rail thickness to create just the right floatation needed to ride this shorter design. The idea is to get the Intermediate surfer on a shorter board that can give you more speed and maneuverability.

This version of the board comes with the full resin8 six fin set. Combined with the plugs, it gives you a conventional thruster setup, quad fin setup and the resin8 mini-5-fin setup for extra hold in bigger surf.

5’7 x 19″ x 1 3/4″

If you think that the Resin8 is an expensive experience, you would have to think again. You can actually get this surfboard at a price around $ 480!!!
