The NDR is an extremely versatile board design that is proven to rip in both small mushy waves and steeper powerful waves! Originally intended for smaller surf, the board has a very neutral and natural board design - meaning there is nothing too extreme going on with its overall template. The nose and tail rocker are relaxed, the bottom has a very slight single to double concave. The rails are neutral, more tapered than boxy. The most “extreme” design element is how subtle the volume is foiled nose to tail - with the volume located just where you need it for paddling. These neutral design elements came together and team riders discovered it easily paddles into much larger waves than originally intended! Originally available as swallow tails, I started to put round tails on them which opened them up even larger waves. Added versatility includes the 5 fin boxes so it can be ridden as a thruster or a quad as the size of the waves dictate.
