Welcome back to small wave excitement!
A blown up version of our successful Skippa model. The Thrill Pill allows fast and responsive surfing but still carries enough volume for weak surf with an outline that sits between the Skippa and the Bulldog.
It’s flat rocker and wide outline makes catching waves easy. The bottom contour is a deep single concave to make this board agile in small waves. The single concave in the tail enhances the looseness but there’s plenty of control top turns.
A relatively extreme tail kick allows radical manoeuvres and tight arcs. The rails are full, but given the low board thickness and flat deck you’ll still sense every movement of the wave and be able to react swiftly. All these attributes make the Thrill Pill a very versatile board which can be used in various conditions.
If you generally like more volume in your shortboard the Thrill Pill can be ordered with a slightly straightened outline. This will make the board work really well in solid surf while still offering a lot of drive and great response.
The straighter outline in the tail asks for a quad fin setup, but due to the five fin set up it can be ridden as a thruster as well. We recommend our own design winger round tail which gives you a lot of control in your turns.
NOTE: Standard every Board is made with FCSII Fin System without fins. In case you prefer a different system please head over to the Custom Orderform.
