Quick tech tip to help you choose your board - we wouldn't want you to miss the rare gem. You have probably heard all these terms that sound like coded language: concave, vee, rocker, contour, tail, nose, rail, etc. But what does it all mean, and how is it going to influence your surfing? That's the question to ask oneself whenever the time has come to pick a new battle horse. The concave is the down curve from one rail to the other under the board, also called contour. Concave can be simple or double and include volume variations like a vee, a ridge that follows the board's stringer. A well-pronounced concave will increase maneuverability thanks to a contact between the board and the water that will be mostly on the rails. It will facilitate the transfer from the left to the right rail, and vice-versa, which is very important in high-performance surfing. Those are some aspects to consider when it's time to make a choice.
