Want to maximize your performance even when the waves are less than perfect? The Highline is a high-performance shortboard that we have developed with feedback from Jack Freestone, John, Nathan and Ivan Florence, Tyler Wright, Nic Von Rupp and the majority of our junior team riders over the past year.
Designed to excel in average-to-good waves, and based on our popular and versatile 74 model. We left the rocker unchanged but updated the foil and outline to fit our idea of a modern HPSB. The bottom features a medium/high rocker, with a single concave all the way through. This combination of contours and curves generates lift for quick acceleration, holding speed, and drive. The outline wide point is just back from the centre and it has a pronounced hip that adds drive while creating a pivot point that allows for snappy, vertical surfing. As with the 74, the deck is slightly flatter than our other boards, with more volume pushed out towards the rail. The rail itself is refined, not boxy, keeping it sensitive and easy to push through turns. When compared to our Radius model (as these two are similar to each other in our range), The Radius has more overall rocker and is more suited to punchy waves with some curve in the face.
The Highline's rocker is slightly flatter, nose and tail, and thus tends to hold more speed in weaker waves and carry speed through flatter waves more easily, while still having enough rocker to allow for easy vertical surfing. Additionally, the Highline stock sizing has a bit more width and volume per size (most are about half to 1 litre more volume) so that adds float and carry in smaller waves. To put it simply the Highline is a great high-performance board for good to below-average waves. It will help you make the most of your everyday surfs and elevate your surfing performance. We recommend you ride it at anywhere from an inch under to an inch over your height and at your favourite performance surfboard dims and volume.
