The new 35.5″ Manta Ray is suited to the “surf dads” or taller surfers over 6ft (183cm) that have a wider surf stance. We’ve made a board that has excellent drive and hold through the deepest bottom turns and tightest top top turns. It has a contour deck shape: more width on the tail so you can push down hard through the turn. The front foot area is also wider again for pushing hard for carving driveways or small skatebowls.

The Manta Ray has new white SmoothStar Starfish wheels which are 2mm wider and 4 mm thicker than SmoothStar Stingray wheels. More rubber connected to the asphalt means the bigger guys have more hold through the turns.
