It really is like having a short, longboard..
The DYNAMO is a really versatile board, it has a performance shortboard rocker so it surfs really well off the tail, allowing you to get vertical in sections you wouldn't think a wide nose would go.. Given the generous area in the nose, roundhouse cutbacks off the whitewater are effortless. If you are an advanced surfer you also might be able to get some toes over, on a shortboard sounds strange, but it's a euphoric experience!

WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF WHEN YOU DESIGNED IT?
Originally the concept came from Vance Burrows around 2000, He wanted something with the paddle power of his longboard with performance of a short board, so its like you got a 9’ longboard and chopped 2 feet out of the middle…
WHAT IS POSSIBLY COMPROMISES ON THEN?
The straighter section of outline through the middle gives the board a longer feel, draws the turns, makes it feel a little stiffer to pump for speed, the wide nose doesn’t like being pushed too deep in the pocket or snapping under the lip…
A good all round board for softer yet fast waves, great paddle power and carry, if you have a carvy style and don’t like flicking your board around, its perfect, likes to be surfed with the emphasis on drawn arcs and power surfing, one aspect we never thought about when it was designed, its actually a great board for big airs, the amount of nose area allows it to sail onto the wind with a cross onshore..
