This board literally walks on water. Better yet, runs on water. Were talking easy paddling, a fast ride, effortless glide, and lip blasting vertical capabilities, all packed into one board. The Dwart takes the basic elements of a modern fish and fuses them with a few high performance design techniques to take it to the next level. You want a board that does it all? The Dwart is the best yet.
The Rundown: This board literally walks on water. Better yet, runs on water. Weâ€™re
talking easy paddling, a fast ride, effortless glide, and lip blasting
vertical capabilities all packed into one board. The Dwart takes
the basic elements of a modern fish and fuses them with a few high
performance design techniques to take it to the next level. You want
a board that â€œdoes it allâ€? The Dwart is the best yet.
Rocker: A low, constant rocker runs throughout the Dwart. This keeps speed
without tracking, makes mince meat of the smaller flatter sections, and
helps make paddling a breeze. To put it simply: The flatter, the faster.
Concave: A slight single runs through the front half of the board, blending into a
double concave “V” in the last third. The single up front allows the board
to plane out quickly, and the double concave “V” through the tail retains
the easy rail to rail action. It’s the best of both worlds when we’re talking
Rails: The Dwart is built with a full, large-radius rail with the apex just below 50/50.
This setup helps pack a ton of volume onto such a short frame, and provides
a very forgiving, yet responsive feel.
Tail: Double Wing And Round Tail; and so the Dwart was born. This configuration
is a key component in keeping this board responsive, and serves a couple
purposes. The double wing setup allows the volume and surface area in the tail
to be substantially decreased, creating a super positive feel on a generally full
board geared heavily for speed and glide. The round tail allows for a seamless
rail to rail transition with very little loss in speed, so it’s the perfect tweak to
finish off this amphibious skate board.
Fins: The Dwart is built stock as a 5-fin convertible because it works well both as a
tri fin and a quad fin. This board tends to be ridden most often in the smaller
surf, but the versatility in the 5-fin setup better allows the Dwart to work well
in anything from 1-10 foot.
Sizing: The Dwart has been built, and ripped on, in all sizes between 4’11 to 7’2, but
most ride it 3-6 inches shorter then their Redline. The volume of a 5’6 Dwart,
for example, is about equivalent to a 6’6 Redline, so even downsizing 6 inches
gives you a significant boost in foam. Here’s a good rule of thumb to get
what you are looking for: The greater the downsize, the better the Dwart will
imitate a short board’s responsiveness and vertical abilities. The smaller the
downsize, the more enhanced the small wave, easy gliding, groveling powers
will be. Anywhere in between is, well… in between.
