Bing - Seeker 7'8''
7'8'' 22.15 3
I wanted to create a board that was appealing to longboarders, and shortboarders to be a wave-catching machine. What makes the Seeker different is the high volume, flat deck and bottom, and medium fold-down rail, giving the board a feeling of riding on top of the water that gives a lively, yet stable feeling. The wider nose creates a more parallel outline for more drive, speed, and trim. I kicked up the nose rocker in the last foot to navigate late take-offs and to be able to fade deep into the wave. The squash tail provides more surface area for added stability and earlier wave-catching, and the slight lift and double concave in the tail give it sensitivity and release in the turns. With the balanced elements, this model will excel in mushy or steeper, bigger waves. The 2+1 fin configuration allows for a single fin option that is a favorite among our factory/retail store design team, comprised of pro level to average surfers. – Matt Calvani, head shaper/designer
