THE NECK BEARD

AFTER TINKERING WITH DIFFERENT CONCEPTS FOR MOST OF 2010, DANE REYNOLDS LAUNCHED THE NECK BEARD IN EARLY 2011, THAT BECAME HIS FAVORITE FREE-SURF BOARD. NO LONGER WORKING TO HIDE VOLUME FROM THE JUDGES LIKE WITH THE DUMPSTER DIVER, DANE LET IT ALL HANG OUT WITH A WIDER NOSE AND CHOP TAIL. WITH LIGHT SINGLE CONCAVE AND VEE OUT THE BACK, THIS BOARD IS FASTER DOWN THE LINE, HAS INCREASED RAIL-TO-RAIL TRANSITION, AND IS MORE STABLE WHEN LANDING AIRS. SUPER USER-FRIENDLY, THIS IS THE BOARD DANE GRABS WHEN ITS 1-FOOT TO HEAD-HIGH.

THE 2012 NECKBEARD TAIL WAS TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM DANE’S HAND-DRAWN TEMPLATE. DANE KEPT THE OVERALL GENEROUS PLAN-SHAPE TO PROVIDE A SKATEY FEEL BUT THE TAIL REFINEMENT ALLOWS FOR SLIGHTLY MORE BACK FOOT SENSITIVITY. LIGHT SINGLE CONCAVE AND VEE OUT THE BACK, INCREASED RAIL-TO-RAIL TRANSITION AND WIDER THROUGH THE NOSE AND TAIL.

DANE RIDES THE NECK BEARD AS A TRI-FIN AND AS A QUAD FOR SPEED. COMES WITH A FIVE FIN SETUP TO GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. IF YOU ARE A FAN OF THE DUMPSTER DIVER, THEN DEFINITELY GROW OUT YOUR NECK BEARD.
