HATCHET-PU-FUT-5FI-5'6

Regular price R 7,600.00

Another board from the flat deck family, the Hatchet is a groveler with high performance characteristics. The Hatchet has a semi-fishy outline and the nose and tail are a bit narrower than a traditional fish. The Hatchet has a fuller template with a five fin set up. The board has great planing over flat sections on the wave.

The Hatchet has a low rocker throughout the bottom, with a single concave at the front foot moving towards a double concave in the fin area and a slight vee at the end of the tail. It is easy to surf, easy to catch waves and easy on the maneuvers. A great everyday surfboard!

If you are looking for surfboards similar to the Hatchet why not take a look at the 419fish or the Shiv – both great alternative rides. Also feel free to take a look at the rest of our selection from the Rusty Surfboards South Africa collection here. We now ship to all major cities across South Africa, whether you are in Durban, Cape Town or Johannesburg or further afield we can ship our surfboards to your door.
