While its not a true "Softlite", the Tombstone comes from our subsidiary brand Mullet Boards. This is a brand full of unique shapes we designed to appeal to the more advanced surfer, but is equally suitable for kids to learn on. It features all the same materials and technology as our Softlite Models.
The Tombstone is one of the newer models in our range, perfect for the 'bigger bloke' or 'more-to-love' woman. Similarly, this board is also suited to more of a beginner - intermediate rider looking for a board to progress their skills on.
If you have a look at this board, we've basically taken the front half off a Mini Mal, and the back half off more of a performance thruster which is a good indicator of how this board surfs. We like to consider it a reverse Mullet - Party at the front, and business at the back.
With the big planing area and sustained thickness through the front end, this thing paddles like a dream, and is ideal for catching waves nice and early. Rocker is pretty flat, so it also ploughs through chop and fat sections when surfing in junky conditions.
Off the back foot, its surprisingly responsive and turns on a dime. Coming out of turns, it is quite stable with the wider nose, which makes it pretty user friendly to ride.
This board would float the big boys, and would be sweet for riders up to 110kg if you are a reasonable surfer.
