The Pistol features a sleek outline with a smooth entry rocker. A fair amount of tail rocker allows for snappy turns and the board fits nicely into the curve of the pocket. The bottom contours feature a blend of flat, vee, and double concave vee for a balance of speed and control. These boards have fairly narrow tails (usually round-pins or narrow round-squares) for holding power and control. This is the model for good waves and good surfing. They are the perfect boards to take on a surf trip!
