Description

This is the board that I travel with. If I go on a trip and need to minimize the amount of equipment the AssoK is my board. I can use it for surfing, riding strapless , with straps in onshore and choppy waters and in case the wind is light I can use it as a freeride lightwind machine. No other boards in the line have such a range. Love it.

Features

The vee bottom that allows for smooth rail to rail transitions.The wider nose area in the entry of the board definitely helps increase planing speed over flat sections.As well its narrow tail defines it from a fishy board and gives it more control. It comes standard with a bump round pin tail, which not only smoothes out your style but suits quick direction changes perfectly. This board is standard with 5 sets of future fin plugs which provides versatility and can be ridden as either a tri or quad-fin.
