So the Mantarave is a full fishy planshape with a sick little bat tail and an extreme single concave running under pretty much the full length of the board. Think speed speed speed!
And then super loose turn shredding.
It was also part of a small Critters demo quiver and has been ridden a handful of times with some pressures to show for it. Otherwise basically a new board!
Strongly glassed in a dope vanilla/egg yolk resin tint by the masters of Panther Surfboards but still superlight!
Here's the lowdown by Critters:
Combine the speed of the Mystic Jelly with the control of the Dolphin Racer V3 and you have the Mantarave - the perfect balance between the two. The overall rocker is low and staged providing lots of surface area under the front foot for inherent speed. A full length channel adss to the speed and grip while the bat tail adds connection to the face of the wave. The last 12” of the tail is very straight, adding drive off the bottom and enhancing the ability to draw clean lines. Combining the channel and the sharp connecting edge of the tail gives you a healthy balance of grip and drive on rail while maintaining a manageable amount of “skatey” feel. This is a great all around critter for those looking for a lot of natural speed with medium performance characteristics in waves 1-4ft.
Fins: Twin or Quad
Rocker: Staged low
