Kona Root Beer Barrel Surfboard
The Root Beer Barrel is an incredibly versatile surfboard, showcasing its prowess in two to six-foot waves. Packed with additional features and some intriguing hidden characteristics, this board delivers a fantastic surfing experience.
The double concave, ingeniously compensating for its extra width, allows the board to lean on its rail effectively in critical and hollow situations while effortlessly soaring over dead sections. The reverse vee makes the Root Beer Barrel somewhat unique, providing extra lift over flat sections, seamless rail-to-rail shifts, and unwavering speed.
This board is more than just an all-around groveller; it surprises by holding a rail in bigger conditions. The unique diamond tail design combines the instant bite of a square tail with the stability and hold of a pin tail, ensuring a steady and biting performance in all conditions. Although its rocker is less relaxed than some models, leaning towards an all-around grovel board, it remains effective in weak surf.
