Arenal – Anomaly 9’0

Curiously, there aren’t many surfboards made in the 8’6” to 9′ range, why is that?  Too big for a mid-length; too small for a longboard?  Opportunity?  he was intrigued and set out to explore and understand this largely ignored aberration.

Following the proven axiom: “keep it simple stupid,” he settled on a naturally flowing, continuous rocker (no flat zones) and a curvy plan shape – no wings, bumps, or breaks in the outline.  Of most importance, I wanted a wave-catching beast, so a flatter entry rocker was essential.  The single-fin, round pin-tail keeps the turns smooth, although a square-tail or soft diamond provides for quick direction changes.  Rails are of the 70/30 variety, with hard down rails in the tail for drive and punch out of turns.  The flat entry to the spiral vee to flat off the tail provides the speed and fluidity desired for solid bottom turns, smooth cutbacks, and mindless trim; pure down-the-line surfing.  The Anomaly is efficient in the smaller stuff, but when the surf picks up the board comes alive, as if saying, “…show me what you’ve got!”
