When your favorite spot is going off The Hoki is your weapon of choice. Dart like template for the speed, draw and momentum needed in extreme conditions with extra length and volume. Smooth and gradual rocker profile combined with a blend of vee results in a board that generates incredible speed and control. A flat mid rocker offers paddling power allowing you to get into the wave and down the face quicker. Performance-wise, solid feel allows for bigger harder turns and gets you in and more importantly out of deeper barrels.
Finishing in what we call the "nose dip" a combination of 2/3rds wet n' dry with gloss polish on the nose.
