- Alternative Shortboard -
Don't let the cartoonish silhouette fool you; the Charley Brown goes wherever you take it with speed, agility, and a little extra stability to help soften your rough edges. It has a full outline with a mellow rocker that makes catching waves and finding your footing laughably simple. Excellent drive down the line when you need to work through a flat section and incredible control when the wave's doing all the work. Turns are lively, responsive, and tight; you can hold the rail through steady arcs or slash the lip with great release. Snooping tubes are peanuts with a comfortable balance of speed, responsiveness, and control. Other shortboards capable of these maneuvers are often unstable and require a gym membership, but the Charley Brown feels as familiar as Sunday morning comics.
The Charley Brown is built like an oversized performance shortboard without the unnecessary parts of the nose for less swing weight and a shorter rail line.
Wide outline with a tight foil to balance comfort and stability against snappy responsiveness.
Wide-point behind center provides effortless take-offs and maximum leverage for aggressive turns.
Moderate but slow-rise rocker for easy paddling and fast trim with enough forgiveness for aggressive maneuvers.
