The Bean is essentially a hybrid model offering an exciting alternative to riding more traditional shortboard designs. Appropriately named, the Bean has a full nose template and added width through the centre, which morphs smoothly into a tail outline typical of a standard shortboard.
The unique shape of the Bean, combined with the relaxed rocker profile throughout, provides a platform for easy paddling, efficient start-up acceleration and flow in mushy conditions, while still delivering exceptional pivot and hold in tighter sections.
Fast and full of spark as a thruster or a quad, the Bean offers acrobatic performance in the smaller sizes, and reliable performance in the higher volume sizes. As a general rule you can ride the BEAN 3-to-6 inches shorter than your regular shortboard.
