The Tangent is the board design that Kelly consistently relied on to get the job done during his 9th world title run with wins in solid surf at Fiji, J-Bay, and Trestles. It consists of single concave and comes with the popular and versatile squash tail or Kelly’s preferred round pin tail. During the quest for a ninth world title, Kelly and Al basically went off on “a tangent” when it came to board design. They tried many formulas which involved one single constant, the rocker. They manipulated countless variables in design: vee bottoms, concaves, shrinking down the size and widening the board up, changing tail temps, fin angles, and fin clusters all depending on the wave to be surfed. To change things up for small waves CI also suggest getting the Tangent 2” shorter and 1/4” to 1/2” wider than your standard shorty. Designed for everyday use by intermediate to expert surfers in waist to well overhead surf.
