Panda Shiitake Surfboard 6'8
Panda Surfboards was founded by Blake Peters in 2000, Born and raised on the Northern Beaches of Sydney; Blake has learnt his craft from the mass of local, talented shapers he grew up admiring – and is now part of the new generation of foam-mowers who are making successful in-roads on a global level. Constant reviewing of new technology and then taking full advantage of it, to create extremely accurate designs (whilst pushing and testing the limits of board function) is what drives PANDA forward as a highly adaptable company. Its about looking to the future, whilst always appreciating heritage.cc
We pride ourselves in being able to manipulate foam of all shapes and sizes, with a quality and flare that sets us apart.
Blake and ourselves believe riding a PANDA allows you to open your mind - change your perception on what feeling you can have on a wave.
The Shiitake is the ultimate performance fish board. The nose of the board is flat enough for a great amount of glide whilst paddling, and the vee concave that runs out of the vail helps to keep this retro-inspired surfboard very maneuverable. The Shiitake performs best in waves shoulder high + and has been designed to be ridden as a Twinzer. The Twinzer fin layout is the same as a regular twin but with the addition of smaller side bite type fins that sit in front and closer to the rail line. The idea behind this twin fin surfboard is that the smaller leading fins break the water before the larger fin giving the board a more lively feeling noticeable when making tight arcs. You can also configure the Shiitake in all other fin layouts and it will work well.
The Shiitake comes with Glassed-in twinzer side bites. We suggest pairing this board with the EN twin set from Futures fins, or the Rasta or Son Of Cobra Upright twins also from futures
