Taurin 5´8´´ 2013
The Taurin 5’8” is designed for small and medium waves and is also a fun board to play with on lighter days. This board suits intermediate to advanced riders who are looking to try new tricks and learn new techniques and is intentionally a bit stiffer than the majority of wave boards so that it will hold up to the inevitable beating from this style of riding. The board also has extra fiber glass layers on the deck which ensure no dents, and additional reinforcements around the fin boxes to eliminate the chances of damage in the fin area. Increased width and volume provide fast planing, which is especially important in light wind conditions.
The board is great for both strapped and strapless riding but, due to the increased width and stability, the Taurin is perfectly suited to strapless riding and strapless freestyle. With a fish tail and quad fin set up, the board is also superb for making tighter turns, especially in onshore conditions. It is a fast board with easy control and the fish tail serves to ease the transition from edge to edge and increase the turning ability.
The Taurin is constructed using the latest bamboo wood sandwich construction. The bamboo is preferable to wood due to its weight and elasticity, and is exactly what is needed for superior wave boards.
The Taurin is supplied with fins, straps and self adhesive EVA pads - it's your choice whether to wax it or ride with the footpads...
