We needed a board to fit in our range that caters small waves, is forgiving, has a big generous sweet spot and performs.
We had the perfect board right under our nose for over the past year. It is designed mainly from Mitch Coleborn WQS small wave contest board (as we all know the quality of waves on the World Qualifying Series are poor). It is like a squashed down Spawn (the outline that is) and combined with a much flatter faster rocker.
Lets break it down - The Churro has a semi wide outline with a rounded square tail (we offer a swallow too) but not too wide that it cant be surfed with performance, just enough to be paddle friendly in the small stuff and carry momentum through the fat sections. The rocker is gentle through the nose all the way to the tail, enough curve in the board to fit the curl of a small wave and still generate speed when doing so. Single concave under the front foot all the way back through to behind the rear fin, it is FAST. All paired with a neat 5 fin set up.
If you have ridden the Rare Bird, the dimensions on the Churro are almost identical so go off that or drop 3 inches from your short board.
