A small wave weapon that generates plenty of speed in average waves, the Orca is a handy travel board for surfers seeking a versatile sled that’s also forgiving. Anyone looking to transition from a beginner board to a shortboard will love the Orca. However, more skilled surfers will also enjoy the way it transforms terrible conditions into epic sessions. Word of warning though – this impressive wave-catcher won’t make you any friends in crowded lineups!
