Designed by Blake Peters, the Panda keel is a sleek, raked template with a narrow tip designed to allow a more progressive approach to surfing a variety of keel surfboard models with both narrow and wide tail designs. Recommended for the Rocket Fish and the Astro Zombie.
Keel templates with a high amount of sweep typically have a fairly straight trailing edge, yet in contrast, the Panda keel has an accentuated curve on the trailing edge which gives it the appearance of a stretched out contemporary shaped fin. The high sweep angle produces a burst of drive and acceleration from the take off, and the tapered tip maintains a feeling of freedom and release off the top.
This keel also sits quite deep in the water, which helps to stabilise the board and deliver a sense of flow when turning it higher speeds. Positioned in the M-L size category, this keel will deliver an overriding sense of smoothness and flow, allow you to turn sharply off the top, and confidently carve on rail with power.
Performance Glass (PG) fins are machine cut from layers of solid fiberglass. These fins are stiff, and are widely used by pro level surfers because the integrity of the flex is maintained under immense force, and in the most extreme of conditions and situations.
