Speed, speed and more speed! The Gringo is made to go fast. Modeled after the classic Stinger shapes of the mid 1970s made popular by the Dogtown boys of Venice Beach, this board is made for those big, steep, nasty swells (think hurricanes and winter nor'easters) or steep summer days. The forward volume gives you all the paddle power you need to get into the wave early. Add to that the single wing with a deep swallowtail and this board will not only fly down the line, it will turn on a dime. And to give it that final piece of classic surf design, the Gringo is all single fin, all the time. So if you are looking to make that steep drop, tuck into the barrel and glide your way to surf perfection, then the Gringo is your board!
