The Monk is our quintessential single fin logging board - built for effortless glide. With plenty of volume and weight, flattened nose and tail widths are the key aspects together with round rails and rolled bottom to complimented the deep teardrop concave in the nose.
The perfect solid platform for timeless nose riding, makes for catching the smallest waves early, with plenty of room to take a stroll.
These boards are traditionally glassed heavy for glide and durability using 6oz glass on bases and doubled on the deck patches and fin box as well as wooden tail block.
Finishing in what we call the "nose dip" a combination of 2/3rds wet n' dry with gloss polish on the nose.
Spec 8 & 10oz Volan as extra
