5 ft 5 in Gdeck Rob-Shark
From the Santa Cruz Surfboards experimental division we present the GDECK. The Jet pack of surfboards. With a skateboard like kick tail and a cambered platform deck the GDECK’s foot positions create more power, control, better angles and comfort in tight turning situations. The GDECK has the same amount of board in different more functional places. This design isn’t meant to float any better, but to have a thinner rail with equal volume. The benefits of a thinner rail are that of sensitivity, bite, speed and release. With the GDECK’s platform out near the rail, it still has the needed stability to pull black out inducing G-Force.
The wider outline and rounded nose give this board and the speed and maneuverability needed for smaller surf. The wing swallow reduces the tail area for a tighter fit. Tip to tip vee bottom provides easy rail to rail turning. Deep double concaves cut across the bottom curve for speed, bite and extra lift. Ride one 5-8”s shorter than your normal shortboard. Our team calls this design the skateboard on water. We call it the GDECK.
Featuring Santa Cruz’s exclusive PowerLyte technology.
