High-Performance Softboard

Not long ago, the words "soft surfboard" would've drawn jeers from core surfers. Now comes the ultralight Y-Quad, a truly high-performance softboard designed by Tom Morey, inventor of the boogie board. The semihard slick-skin deck and bottom suggest a glassed board, but the soft rails and boxy tail clearly indicate the Y-Quad is its own animal. The bottom is nearly flat for excellent glide, while the four fins and funky rails give you loads of turning power. 5' to 6'6";
Stability: 4.6
Maneuverability: 4.8
