Fanatic Retrolution Carbon Ltd shortboard

This 1.78m quad fin Retrolution is ideal for intermediate surfers riding small to medium-sized breaks. It has a wide nose to help you remain stable as you’re picked up by a wave and a narrow tail, making it responsive once you're up. Carbon-fibre edges and a bamboo sandwich core mean the board is strong enough to withstand all but the biggest waves smashing down on it, yet light enough to carry comfortably when you’ve got a long beach walk.

This two-person kayak has a variety of practical features to help improve your time on the water, including comfortable inflatable seats, easy carry handles, practical mesh pockets and neoprene padding guards for extra comfort and protection. It’s fast too, thanks to purpose-built fins on the hull that improve tracking and manoeuvrability, and Surfdome generously throws in a free paddle so you won’t find yourself up any creeks without one.
