At Fourth we've tried to make boards that'll work in the widest range of conditions for the widest range of surfers. The Teardrop, however, is all about performance blended with this versatility in a single board. It's a distillation of everything we've learnt trying to build a 'one board quiver' for decent surfers. The tail is all shortboard, with a hard, sharp rail, minimal volume, subtle vee and the classic pin outline it'll lock in the steepest face and provide a predictable platform for aggressive back foot surfer. Going forward the board changes, with more width, volume, a single concave and a flatter rocker you get speed, early entry, paddle power and access to more of the wave than ever before. The result is a board that proves that the same features that make for a good small wave groveller (principally speed and floatation) also make for a good companion when the waves get big (early takeoff) and manages it all without compromising performance on a steeper face - in fact this board is a relaxed, confident barrel rider. In this updated version we've also added a more shortboard style nose and a bit more nose flip to help the board find it's line on steeper takeoffs or drive harder into turns without catching.
We billed this as a board for advanced surfers, despite the extra volume - a perfect travel board fulfilling both the grovel and step up roles in a restricted quiver. At the same time as a first proper shortboard it'll provide the same confidence to a strong intermediate surfer looking for the next step.<./p>
If you're already riding a 'standard dimension' performance shortboard we'd suggest you go 4-6 inches shorter with the Teardrop for maximum performance, however for versatility and something to step up to length could be closer to your standard performance stick.

5,11 - was a little concerned it might be too small but MSW talked me round and I'm pleased they did - it's a wave catching machine. Been out around 10 times in beach breaks and reefs with quad set-up (Aqua-Line fins). Not as skatey or fast as I expected for its size and volume - solid underfoot and smooth to surf, likes to be worked a bit. Easy take-offs - can get in early but handles late take-offs no probs. Good board, I'd be happy buying it again. Very good construction.
