The Plasma design concept was to make a board that could be ridden in the threshold conditions of 10-12 knots. This board planes quickly while delivering a high level of performance suited for light wind riding. The result is a lightweight twin tip design with a wider, parallel outline and off center 3-D section and foot positioning. A new tip design reduces the spray when riding in choppy waters. The PVC core has excellent tracking abilities and knack for getting a rider upwind in marginal conditions.
