The RDS2 by Rod Dahlberg is a performance shortboard is best described as a plumped out version of the RDS1. The RDS1 is Rod's current go to high performance shortboard design. Lower volume, more overall rocker and slightly deeper concaves to suit more advanced surfers wanting to push their surfing.

The RDS2 brings more foam into this high performance design, opening it up to the intermediate surfer wanting a little more volume in their shortboard.

The main aim with all my designs is to create shapes that have speed and drive but also release when needed, obviously a hard combination as they kind of contradict each other but when the curves are right combined with the correct fin placement and fins this can be achieved. All my designs are work in progress and are constantly being fine tuned for your surfing enjoyment." Rod Dahlberg

The ideal volume of your board is generated based on your weight, ability, fitness level, experience and age. For example, older surfers and beginners tend to choose something with a higher volume, as this equates to more paddle power.
