Switchblade 2016

Switchblade 2016

by DHD Surf

Available in-stores this November!

The ‘Switchblade‘ is your fun all-round performance small wave shortboard! Light and manoeuvrable and performs well in all conditions.

This model is usually ridden shorter and wider as we have added more volume to the tail which helps with speed through ‘dead sections’. The Tail shape is still the same performance tail but has been slightly pulled in by a 1/16th of an inch improving turning.

The wider point has been moved 1” forward which has streamlined the outline making it smoother in the shape and with a slightly reduced concave improving the rail from catching on smaller waves.
