In early 2019 we started working on prototypes for our soft top program. We wanted to make a board sub 5’0” that could carry volume but still be a ripper. So we made a 4’10” chunky little thing that was a little over 30 liters, with a fishy rocker, twin-fin setup, and a wild double-barrel bonzer-style deep-channel concave running almost the full length of the bottom of the board. We gave it to Asher and Josh to test. The results were remarkable. It was the first Album board Asher rode and within two sessions the guys had already stacked internet-breaking clips on a first-draft prototype. So it went off to create the mold for the Seaskate soft top, but we knew we had to make a model out of it. Ride it a little shorter and thicker than a Sunstone. It packs a lot of volume, but don’t be afraid to ride it 3-5 liters more than your shortboard.
