GNARWHAL XR CHARACTERISTICS
The Gnarwhal XR is an upgraded version of the Gnarwhal that features a high-tech carbon matrix overlay and stringer that yields added stiffness and strength and gives the board an unbelievable visual appeal. This is a gorgeous board puts others to shame, plain and simple.
The Gnarwahl XR is a progressive surf shape with a short nose and fat tail. It packs a lot of surface area into a little package to fit comfortably into the pocket of the wave and cruise with ease. The fat tail is designed so you can worry less about staying with the wave and more about exploring the pop off the top of the lip. It’s the first board we caught air on and we’re confident the same will be the case for you. It’s quad fin setup is fun to play with to achieve more drive with the fins in the back, or more of a skate-like, easy to break free feel with just the forward fins installed. The Gnarwahl is equipped with FCSII fin boxes to make fin swaps a breeze without the endless hunt for a key, and are also compatible with all other FCS fin models.
