Construction

The hull was designed to maximize control while surfing and carving waves. The flat hull meets the full-length chines almost at 90 degrees, which provides comfortable secondary stability for any level of expertise. The 3L stand for the three-layered construction of polyethylene that makes this boat a solid choice for playing in tidal surf.
