Pretty impressive debut: the Bowl, part of the snowboarding brand’s first line of surfboards, is one of the most durable surfboards we’ve ever tested. It’s made from a lightweight composite instead of fiberglass, and the rails are wrapped in rubberized metallic fibers. We jumped up and down on a six-two thruster model on concrete and didn’t ding it! It also paddles well and comes alive in steep, chest-high beach break. While the board has lots of flex, which can suck drive out of turns, it’s also bombproof and ideal for moderate-to-big surf. 5'8"–6'4".
