TIIRA - THE ARCTIC TERN
flies as well as it glides, performing almost all of its tasks in the air.
This Square tail harks back to original hawaiian straight-tailed alaia boards. Its main characteristic is to provide stability and good bite for fast pivotal turns.
The Square model is a great all-rounder, helping you dodge trees on tight forest runs, while providing good float and carving behaviour on steeper sections.
This is a tried and tested shape, reliable in pretty much any conditions.
