Designed for Waves 2 – 8ft. The step up board from the Metro-TT has had a major design evolution. Now a 1/4″vee in the nose deflects chop and decreases wind lift in large conditions. There is also more thickness under the chest, with a flat deck and a chined rail, meaning the board feels thinner under your arm but has hidden volume under the chest. Concave sits at 3/8” graduating to a 1/2″ vee off the tail for more grip and a rail line flip behind the fins which releases at high speeds. The board happily handles from head high to as big as you can catch.
Based on the tow series evolution. The design has a deep concave that is punctuated by a sharp rail which in historical terms would have created a board that would go really fast in a straight line. The Protow ushers in a new era of speed and carve surfing with a rail that won’t let go even in the most critical bottom turn scenario.
The Protow pairs perfectly with the metroas the MC 2 board quiver. Width and volume in the right places create a board that quite often floats better than a conventional board 3 or 4 inches longer and facilitates tighter stronger turns with considerably less effort. This board will have you paddling over the grommets but will impress with its performance steep and deep.
