The 8Ball is a performance mid length board that you can hook turns deep in the pocket, driven by the needs of surfers who want serious paddle power, but still want a board that performs off the tail.
We took some of the characteristics of our long time favorite performance shortboards and we put a longer front end on them. The result is a board that can catch waves like a longboard but surf off the tail like a shortboard. We took the nose entry and flattened it for additional paddle power, then took enough area out of the nose to keep the rails from catching on late drops. As you step onto the tail the curvy outline and performance rocker of the shortboard kick in and you are away, having a ball.
Put the 8Ball in the pocket and see what this board has really got.
