The Spartan is a high-performance freestyle board designed by its namesake, the legendary Dimitri Maramenides. The transparent glossy topcoat reveals the high-quality construction and full wood core that give this board awesome pop and a lightweight, throw-around feel. The Spartan is slightly shorter in length and has more curve in rail and tail outline than many full-on aggressive freestyle boards. This gives it a loose and lively feel and its fun to carve this board hard into big spray transitions. The board is adequately stiff through the tips, which ensure good access to pop for unhooked tricks. There are some nice grab handles on the rails for tweaking grab and board offs. The edge-to-edge concave keeps this board smooth and in control through chop. With less water line it likes to be powered up to drive upwind but the extra concave in the bottom lets you bite hard and stay in control in high winds. The Spartan fits the bill for intermediate to advanced riders that like to boost big, Dimitri-style airs, while maintaining good levels of wakestyle pop, and offering a playful and good transitioning design.

Footbed and Strap System
The Epic strap’s Easy Attach Pad and Strap Combo features a nicely cushioned footbed with the honeycomb textured grip and a nice toe ridge. The adjustable Velcro straps are ergonomically shaped and not overly stiff for an instantly comfortable fit. The whole system is also very light weight and easy to install.
