The Albatross was born out of our love for extra-long boards and a home break known for smaller, gently peeling waves. Years of Mike’s tinkering with our Drifter model with inspiration from graceful glider shapes by Skip Frye and his disciples, led the Albatross—a nod to Skip’s Eagle glider.

Make the most of smaller waves with the Albatross. It’s extra size allows you to cruise around the beach or lineup and cherry-pick waves from way out before they even break. The sleek outline and planing features give the Albatross speed and trimming ability in spades. After a super early entry, you’ll be beating sections and trimming all the way to shore. Plenty of room to walk the length, captain pumps and pivots from the tail, or just stand tall and enjoy the glide.

The Albatross features a long, parallel outline to both keep a narrow, manageable feel to such a long board, in addition to maximize the effective rail line while at trim. Over three inches of thickness in the center gently tapers out to the rails, keeping a lot of volume and stability spread throughout this board. The board paddles like a dream, and allows you to catch waves super early. The flat bottom entry is all planing surface, minimizing any drag for high speed section beating. The tail end gets a V-bottom, which paired with a narrow pintail give it surprising ease rail-to-rail and turn agility. Soft, full rails from the nose transition to a hard release edge out the tail to eliminate any tail drag and project out of bottom turns. The Albatross is designed for a single fin.
