This compression molded skim shape is designed for performance and fun, just like the wave in Encinitas, CA that it was named after. This 2018 board is for those that want a skim shape without the fragile high performance construction or price. The Swami is built to last and also built to perform at a high level. It features a rounded diamond nose and tail shape for control and lift when riding forward or reverse, a single concave for easy glide and a slotted channel through the tail for control. Ride this board as a true skim or attach the shallow twin fins for added drive.
