The 74 was chosen by Dane Reynolds as the 2016 Board of the Year in the ‘Stab in the Dark’ blind surfboard test, and is designed with better waves and high performance surfing in mind.
Dane noted the 74 is best suited for 5-foot tubes and cutbacks. He felt this model is a 'more drivey, down-the-line' point break board. This model is made for high-performance surfing in good waves, at beachies, reefs, and down the line point waves.
Built off the original hand shape made for Dane, the outline is clean, with a mild hip in the tail. The bottom rocker is medium/high, which generates speed and drive, but still allows the board to be loose and responsive. A single concave throughout the bottom adds lift, projection and further drive.
The deck is a bit flatter than our other models, which adds some extra volume out towards the rail (providing extra float and paddle power) but the rail itself is less boxy, for sensitivity.
Designed to work best in punchy beach breaks, reef waves or lined up points, the 74 will not let you down.
The 74 Model comes in clear only with no artwork available to reflect it's humble Stab in the Dark Comp beginnings.
