All Stixx are hand shaped and hand fiberglassed. No popout mold types. Shred Stixx are the most contemporary round pintail surfboard shapes as you will find in todays surfshops;[favorite tail design of most who surf powerfull fast waves, and or, have 350 HP in their hand in the way of a ski handle, same differance less the tube and drop down the face.] Granted those are the two biggest rushes in surfing. BUT....The third best thing is aaaaaalot of peoples favorite thing: CARVING TURNS and SLAMING OFF THE LIP.These two can be recreated behind the boat with the correct boat speed and rope length. WITH NO SLACK IN THE ROPE, GET HORIZONTAL, FLUIDNESS, EXACTLY LIKE YOU'VE SEEN IN THE SURF OR ON FILM.I have been surfing for 36 years and taking my board to the lake 36 years. And I can tell you, THE SENSATION IS THE SAME!!!
