Gato's fun single fin shortboard
Shaper Robin Kegal is Gato Herói. A funky name from a punky guy. He shapes radical re-do's of past eras and rides them with 240 volts of style. The name Gato Herói (Cat Hero) emphasizes Robin’s unique character with a vision and innovatie style that’s always ahead of everyone else.
The Space Roach is fairly different from other Gato’s where you really rely on positioning on the wave to generate speed, with their traditionally rolled bottoms. The roach on the other hand gets that single fin feel from high-lining etc with the subtle roll through the front, but it is actually really squirty off the tail with the double concave. We still keep the volume down in the rails like most Gato’s so you can really bury it in turns, stops it feeling to corky, and holds in nicer in hollow sections. it has plenty of width so you just dont need all that volume and it still paddles well. It also has this rad little sweet spot toward the front where you can shuffle up and almost cheater 5 and it accelerates.
this board features a nice blue translucent resin tint.
