Nev’s 2014 Hashtag model is a good representation of this exact dynamic. Designed to have top end performance, the HASHTAG is still ridden 1”-2” shorter than your normal shortboard. It boasts generous thickness under foot that tapers to a responsive rail with a buttery, step-down round tail.
At 19 1/4” wide on the 5’10”, there still is a forgiving planing surface that works with the surfer in slower conditions yet is uninhibited through steep sections due to a slightly increased overall rocker. The end result is an epic combination of performance and versatility.
