Retro Description

Local San Clemente surfer Tim Ryan said "Shape me a board that I can surf anywhere, any time, in any conditions, and dominate no matter what comes my way." Based heavily on the original Simmons surfboard design of era's past, with a decidedly modern twist, the Retro is the answer to the SUP surfer looking for one board that will be that magic board. More fun than the standard 10' log (and just as easy), and more versatile than the little potato chip performance SUP's, this board is quickly becoming their best selling wave surfing design.
