To give you more insight on this board.
Let the groms have fun and perform as a pro-surfer. The Alpha dog 5'4 is the perfect size and fit for your boy or girl that wants to improve his/her surfing. The outline of the shape embraces a lightweight surfer to learn powerfull and smooth moves in many kind of waves. We do advise you to buy this board only for the more experienced young surfers with a lot of progression in mind.
5 fin setup
This is for sure the cherry on the cake. With 5 futures finboxes you always have all options when it comes down to fin positioning in different types of waves. A quad setup, 2fins on each side, for more speed and looser for maneuvers. A thruster setup, 2 side fins + 1 center fin, for more carving and grip when doing bottom turns. The choice for a certain fin setup can be very personal and is depending a lot on the personal preferences of the surfer. But don't be bothered, you have all options!
Futures is a universal fin system used by all leading surfboard brands in the world. The Futures fin system is the lightest and strongest system in the world. We choose for this system because it’s a proven, no-nonense and very durable solution to have fins on your board. This system is compatible with all fins carrying the futures adaptor, and believe us, that’s a lot. All colors, shapes and setups available arround the globe.
The top of the board, Our softskin IXPE, is always groovy :) A lizard skin, meaning that the eco-friendly IXPE material has a good and deep texture that provides a lot of grip. Do I need to wax my board? Yes and no :)
Basically you don’t need to wax your softdog but when you want to ride it more radical… wax is your extra friend! Waxing is also a form of meditation and a cool thing to do. When you are surfing with booties wax is becoming of less importance.
Removing wax from your board is easy. Just use a friendly detergent like ‘ecovert’ and you can rub down the wax from your board.
