At over 25 feet, the Ri257 is pushing a lot of water. With the new Opti-V hull and QuickSurf, all that water gets shaped into a wave that is arguably the best in the market. It is pro level and then some. You can do whatever you want because the wave can pretty much handle it all, and tweaking the center tab allows you to customize it to your liking. There is plenty of size, power and pocket for any level rider.
