Progressive Bonefish Best Value!
SIZE: 133 x 41 cm
FINS: 4 cm Fiberglass
The Progressive Bonefish is wakestyle-inspired board with continuous rocker, wide tail and parallel outline. The Bone Fish feels light and lively with a skatey handling and a easy throw-around feel. The rounded ABS sidewalls provide easy release to access pop and the tips flex off nicely for sticking landings. The top sheet of the Progressive Boards has nice glossy finish and smooth white ABS sidewalls which give the board a high-quality, polished look. The small amounts of concave through the bottom deck provides some ample chop cushioning along with the moderate flex. This board has a wakestyle skatey feel, and will be admired by intermediate freeriders that want to bust into some wakestyle with a more forgiving board that doesn’t require aggressive edge control to get some unhooked amplitude. This board has decent low-end power but its rocker is focused on delivering easy pop with. It is easy and fun to ride without the kickback of some the stiffer, carbon laden, freestyle shapes. The Bonefish offers great value-to-performance ratio for anyone looking to get into the sport or expand into new realms of riding with a stick that offers discipline specific performance.
Footbed and Strap System
The Progressive pads and straps are a simple and traditional shape, that feature a lightweight build and large Velcro adjustable straps. The EVA foam beds have some nice heel and toe texture for locking in some grip. They are thinner and streamlined but provide good cushioning and arch support. The 90 degree attachment system ensures easy installation.
