For years top shapers and pros alike have been claiming that flex will be the next frontier to understand in board performance. And we all know from our own experiments riding parabolic, carbon railed and stringer-less boards that there is something to it. Tom Wegener is way ahead of the curve in understanding flex and board design. Tom has been experimenting with a combination of ancient knowledge, modern material theory and an elite team of forward thinking surfers to bring us The Seaglass Project Tuna!
The Tuna and Mini Tuna are finless Alaia boards that you have no doubt seen top pros and underground legends riding in waves like J-bay and Malibu. The Tunas are such a perfect blend of the proper flex, rail and bottom contours combined with modern materials to increase floatation, that they no longer require fins to surf and are rapidly changing the way we understand surfboard design and our surfing experience.
The Tuna's rocker profile is very flat so it is easy to catch waves. The combination of the gentle curves and hard rails holds the board into the wave face. The Tuna's speed is incredible even on the smallest waves! With the Tuna in your quiver you will look at the surf in an entirely different way, seeing waves that are fun and rip-able where you did not see them before! It will truly open your mind and your surfing.
Don't take our word for it, read Pat's review after having the Tuna for a couple of months:
Usually ride a long board, but ordered the 6'2" when a custom made shortened long board could not arrive in time for a week in Widemouth. Used it in the clean waves and had a lot of fun, and so did the guys who asked to borrow it, but standing up on it is a whole new experience. For me I had to take the wave in a similar position to a long board. Eskimo rolled it in front of the surf while using it as a boogie board and still came up riding and smiling. Spoke to the designer, Tom Wegener, about it and apparently the board is quite soft on the deck to get the flex, hence the Albacore being developed, so don't abuse it, but it will also continue to loosen up for the first 2 months of riding it - so persist and enjoy. It brought on my skill levels for other board riding, but I did not realise till I swapped back - but it quickly became my new favourite board. So if you are looking for new style challenge, less effort and more fun, this ticks a lot of boxes.
