GLOBAL

Performance Wave

Sizes: 5'2", 5'7", 5'9"

“The Global is one of our favorite high-performance boards to test with its fast rocker that generates and handles a ton of speed while the squash tail delivers perfect control during hits in the pit. With a lighter weight build and tweaks to the tail rocker, the Global has only gotten better in terms of performance wave riding.” - The Kiteboarder

Designed to be ridden fast and hard, the Global will be your best friend in the waves. This board excels in big or small waves, riding strapped or strapless. The new bamboo construction allows you to ride the board as hard as you want to and features a double bamboo sandwich deck, bamboo laminate, and strapless impact resistance heel and rail patch. The Global is equipped for maximum durability, a natural load spread, and enough strength to minimize pressure dents while riding fast and hard. If you are looking for a board that can handle extreme conditions, the Global is the right choice.
