Buying a new surfboard without getting a chance to test drive it, is like driving a car off the lot before taking it around the block first, you might hate the way it rides once you get it up to speed. Unfortunately for us surfers, that's the way it's always been.
Many of us have ridden factory stock, improperly sized fins for YEARS not realizing we'd been hurting our surfing the entire time. There were so many aspects to fins that we really hadn’t even figured in, worst of all, the basics.
THIS is one of the most exciting aspects of being a part of Degree Surfboards and riding along with us on our journey… Nobody loves new surfboard like you guys (except us). Every few seasons we mix it up, picking out a few new colors to try out, sending a handful of one-of-a-kind surfboards through production. We used to just let be sold just like any other of the standard colors in that model, but we thought we'd shake it up a little bit, so here's the deal...

What came out, was something that gave shortboarders a chance to leave no day unridden, and gave longer board riders a way to mingle in the pocket without giving up glide, float, stability and control.
