The Pelican is a new design meant to maximize the surfers' time on a wave. Due to the low entry rocker and single concave running through the front of the board it has lots of speed down the line and is a great paddler. It has a staged rocker with a large sweet spot allowing for lots of drive and easy acceleration. It has a slight double concave through the back fins and a moderate V out the tail. This allows for easy rail to rail transition. The rails are full making the cutbacks more forgiving and less likely to bog when the wave goes flat. It also makes the turns more drawn out.
Fin Set Up
It has a 2 + 1 fin system. For a more traditional feel, ride the Pelican as a single fin and enjoy a more laid back style. If the waves get larger and you feel like you need more hold, then throw in the side bites and enjoy getting into waves way before anyone else in the lineup.
