The Tern is a pintail mid-length that draws influence from retro shapes to bring style and flow to waves with a little more juice. Born from wanting to push some of our classic mid-length boards like the Seed and Sapling into bigger and steeper surf, the Tern excels with control at speed. 

The Tern features a sleek, pulled in outline with a very drawn out pintail for holding tight in the pocket. It has a good amount of lift in the nose to stick steeper drops, and moderate rocker throughout to handle a variety of surf sizes without compromising speed. The volume is concentrated in the center for good buoyancy, tapering to a thin nose, tail and moderate rails leaving this board feeling smooth and maneuverable at speed and not at all “chunky”. A single-to-double concave bottom creates lift at speed, and channels water through the fins out the back. Designed for a 2+1 setup, for a single fin feel with added hold for bigger days.
