The Magnum is a classic surfboard shape that excels in mid-size to large surf. It has a smooth riding feel but also fast-driving and stable. It can bite into bottom turns at high speeds, and its thinned-out tail can paste the face without hesitation. Well-balanced for airs, the Magnum is also comfortable riding with or without straps. This board is ideal for intermediate and advanced riders, and comes close to being an all-around ride with a slight tendency to favor larger-sized surf and sideshore wind conditions. The setup comes with a travel bag and tail and full deck pads in addition to a set of hydrodynamic fins. Any intermediate- or advanced-level surf shredder who wants a down-the-line blaster for higher winds and big waves will be loaded and ready with the Magnum.
