WARNING-THIS IS NOT YOUR DAD’S FISH
This is the dire WARNING as a headline, for a recent release from GLOBAL SURF INDUSTRIES of a surfboard that Dad’s should leave alone, and it goes like this:-
“WARNING- THIS IS NOT YOUR DAD’S FISH”
GSI defines this latest release of the 7S WMD as “the bullet movement for performance alternative in short board designs”. They have tagged the sales pitch as a “warning-this is not your dad’s fish” possibly to create interest in both camps.
The 7S WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction) “boasts high performance rails and a super thin swallow tail that generates massive speed acceleration and thrust out of every turn”
What’s the Secret
The secret to this board is that it has a very flat entry rocker and thin tail exit which allows you to get on the wave earlier, and set yourself up to generating your speed quickly, even after performing a spin or a vertical cut back re entry. When you look at the line of the board, one stand out design construction is obvious, and that is the ¾ length full single concave that provides you with the lift, and speed, in nearly all conditions from overhead, to sloppy knee high waves. The WMD’s single flyer swallow tail needs further inspection, as the tail together with the “spiral vee” just behind the leading fins, allows drive and pivot like a thruster with the ease of a twin fin. It will go like the clappers just as a thruster or a twinnie, with wave count up because of the extra floatation and paddle on, of the fish design, and that’s all got to be good.
The WMD comes with FCF fins standard, or you can opt up for twinnies with a small trailer fin.
