Why the Yellow Boards Rip

I measured the 9'5 Mana rocker today.
4" tail rocker
6" nose scoop
These are numbers you would normally associate with boards designed to rip. They are more than most boards I have measured recently for a board that size, and a lot more than some boards put in production just 2 years ago. That's why this longboard style SUP turns like a ripper model.

The 8'10 also has big rocker numbers

Igor sent me a text today. He picked up his 9'5 Mana during lunch and headed straight to the water. He caught a fun little session that confirmed his findings during the demo. He loved it.

Tonight I rushed home to get some of that strong summer wind to test my down wind board. The wind died on me.
