STEALTH BODYBOARDS NICK GORNALL DIRTY DOZEN POLYPRO CORE 2016/17 MODEL
The board Nick Gornall has been repping lately. Nicks proven template with some new features exclusive to Stealth Boards. Like the last Dirty Dozen, only 12 available (11 after Nick go his) all individually numbered, one colourway, one size! So hit up your local bodyboard store if your after one, and they might be able to get their hands on one for you
New Features include:
Transitional Hull Channels – Stealth's new channel system. The Transitional Hull Channels starting about 18 inches from the tail of the board (almost double the length of traditional channels). Being longer in length with extremely slight graduation, means these channels keep harmony and flow, allowing water to enter and exit cleanly with minimal disturbance. To sum it up simply, they provide better speed, drive and control.
Chisel Tail – This tail shape also provides the looseness and responsiveness of a crescent tail, however increases planing surface area, similarly to the benefits of a bat tail. The squarer pegs, are designed to ensure maximum efficiency of the water flow created from the graduated hull channels. This helps create lift and control, especially when driving off your hips. Extra lift enables easy and smooth rail to rail transitions.
So, whats Nick think of it compared to his normal Bearded Lady Model?
"So the last two mornings i've ridden the new Bearded Babe. It's 100% quicker and slightly looser. I definitely rate it. I've tried it out 3-4 foot Straddie, a punchy beachie. Love to try it out a reef or point" - Nick Gornall
