"The Merlot shape is specific and designed for fun, small wave performance surfing. It’s main feature is the side cut outline that runs from the wide point down to a pronounced hip behind the front fins. When putting the board on rail, the concave outlines are engaged, causing the water flow to follow. This allows the board to draw tight curvy arcs in fun everyday conditions. The center line rocker, has been taken from the Hypto Krypto model but added some curve in the nose and tail. This is flat which gives great planing speed when not on rail, racing down the line or through fat sections. The Merlot's foil is a is really forgiving in the front end but quite sensitive and reactive off the tail. The concave runs from a single in the front end, through to a double between the fins, with a late vee out the last 6 inches of the tail. If the conditions are playful, onshore, offshore - the Merlot is ideal. It has a unique feel at first which develops and delivers maximum performance in small waves." -Hayden Shapes
