THE INSIDE SCOOP:
THE WINKIPOPPA is easily our best selling model, this is the board you turn to for maximizing wave count and having fun, more for the alternate board enthusiast and everyday surf fan, but we’ve still had a few hardcore shortboard diehards convert over to the WINKIPOPPA life.
Born from a twin fish template in the front half with a step up feel in the back half, its all fun and front and all business in the back end, this makes it suitable for everything from soggy 2ft fistral to pumping 6ft Porthleven, to help build in the versatility aspect of the WINKIPOPPA the foil is pushed slightly forward with the wide point, this makes for a paddling
monster beast, but still has thinned out rails (more so in the rear half) for added sensitivity and responsiveness. the wider outline focuses on the maneuverability side of things, while the flatter rocker is for speed.
The WINKIPOPPA comes standard as a thruster set up, for the most part i recommend using a slightly more upright fin template for general poor-fair surf conditions and then using a slightly longer more drawn out or raked fin for longer more lined up surf.
As far as versatility goes, this one scores high. try one, it wont disappoint.
Sizing: for most poeple i recommend riding the winkipoppa 3-5″ shorter than you are tall,which usually comes out a touch wider than your regular high performance shortboard and around a similar thickness, for intemediate level surfers i reccomend going around 3-5″ longer than you are tall.
