This is Skye’s newest and most exciting model and its applications are seemingly endless. Step-up hybrid / alternate all-rounder / tube hunter / trusty traveller / ledge tamer. Combining the best of both worlds you have a board that paddles and gets speed like a fish, but turns sharp and vertical in the pocket and loves the barrel. Set up with tri quad option to adapt to all conditions and wave sizes makes this board equally at home is 2ft beach breaks right up to 8ft barrels. This is the answer to having one board to do it all! Ride this board an inch or 2 shorter than you. This is the one board to pack for your next trip.

From the build quality to its performance in the water, this is definitely a board one should consider, and a board I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a strong performer, whether it’s a dwindling 3ft beach break, to a sucky 6ft point break, this board is fast, agile and all round a super fun board to have. One of my favourite boards I have owned.
This board is a good pick for people looking for an everyday allrounder. Found it went well in some of the smaller summer slop but still handled well on some of the bigger days.
Board is as explained. Feels like a round tail monster box. Obviously better priced. Nice rails, foam forward, good for arcing turns and cut backs in big surf. I got on the large side of my volume to use as a step up for up to 8 foot. Goes well with AM2s. Glassing seems as good as a channel islands, possibly better, and maybe not as good as a JS. Best bang for my buck I have ever spent. Like it better in 6 foot than 3, but that is possibly because of the volume and length I got. Excellent board.
