The step up features a drivey rocker to match a larger wave face though the curves in the tail allow it to fit nicely in the pocket.
A hidden vee beneath the front foot to help it on rail at high speed feeding a double concave to the slightest vee out the tail. The step up goes on rail with confidence allowing you to put everything into each turn without a thought of siding out.
Comfortable and manoeuvrable at any speed and still performing quite well in smaller waves on the face and in the pocket.
The step up allows you to attack bigger waves with confidence.
