The Recruit series is Company's super clean and modern looking continuous series of boards. The Recruit series spawned from the teams request to create something just a little more fast and grippy than the Severance series. Company narrowed up the waist, modified the rocker-line, added a small center fin, spruced up the tip-shape, and stiffened up the insides to find the perfect blend of edge, speed, and pop for the Recruit series. How does it ride? This is an all around, intermediate series of boards that was designed for the rider who likes to snap around, slash it up, and send it to the flats from time to time'or even all the time. Don't underestimate its ability to compliment the entry-level rider though, with its smooth edge-to-edge abilities, and additional bite in the water.
