The Skillit is designed for the new above-the-lip surfing in mind with the in-air punting ability. Designed to enhance the modern trend of above-the-lip strapless maneuvers, the Skillit delivers the easiest throw-around feel of the test with its smooth flow and perfect balance both on and above the water. The progressive double concave ensures the Skillit is snappy and comfortable underfoot, as the subtle shaping cradles your feet when surfing without straps. This board is an ideal choice for small to medium-sized waves, as it offers snappy turns and good control through chop. Although designed for advanced punting, the board is superbly easy to ride in both flatwater and small to mid-size surf. The Skillit comes equipped with progressive fins, and tail and front deck pads that you can affix at your preference. Any level of rider will enjoy this board in smaller waves, and be equipped well into the future of a surf-style career.
