The Modern Retro Longboard puts a contemporary twist on an old school design, made popular back in the late 60's, when hanging toes was the in-vogue move.

OUTLINE: The Retro is wide and incredibly stable. The long parallel rails create a huge stable platform to stand and walk the board, and the full rounded nose is ideal for riding the nose.

ROCKER: Moderately flat entry rocker provides fast paddling and flowing down-the-line trim speed. The flat section through the middle gives the board effortless glide, and slight lift in the tail enhances turning ability.

CONTOURS: A long, single concave under the nose provides lift for extended nose time, while vee through the belly and tail allows the rider to transition smoothly from rail-to-rail.

RAILS: Forgiving 60/40 rails not only provide bite on the wave face, but also allows for smooth transitional turns off the tail.

AESTHETIC: Traditional resin tints, rail laps, and gloss finish not only look striking but also guarantees that each board has its own unique appearance.

FIN: The Retro comes with a single fin box and oversize ‘Hatchet' style fin with a square tip profile. This extra area in the tip provides great stability when the rider is forward on the board.

This log inspired Longboard is all about glide, flow and trimming down the line with style.

  • Polyester (PU)
    • TRADITIONAL POLYESTER OR PU TECHNOLOGY
      Polyester or PU construction uses traditional materials and laminating techniques to produce a strong, reliable surfboard with high quality finishes. All polyester boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand using quality components such as Hexcel fiberglass, Silmar resin and Bennett foam.
      For years traditional polyester boards have been at the forefront of performance surfing. These boards feature a progressive flex pattern controlled by a high-grade timber stringer and feel very reliable under your feet. Polyester construction will perform in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.

      You can find out more about GSI's surfboard construction on our surfboard technologies page

Evert Harder from QLD, Australia says:

Not too much to say about this board and is all GOOD! Construction is brilliant for a board this price and they look sick. Surfed it in chest high peeling surf, and I called it "set and forget" Bottom turn, set the rail, walk the nose and forget your there.... Sensational nose rider! So what do you want?
