The Y25 version of this powerhouse is a well rounded ”does it all” high-end performance board. Easy to ride and comfortable both in light or strong winds. Developed in Cape Town, the Barracuda is not only a fast board that was born to handle full power but can now be revered as the one and only board you need in your quiver!

The Classic PU construction has been developed to create pure surfboards and to allow control over choppy waters. We have improved the weight and strength of the boards this year. We are now using a hi-volume lightweight pigment in the resin. This type of resin fills up the holes in the foam and reduces the amount of resin content in the glass fibres, making the boards lighter. The Classic boards have low fibre memory and low foam memory at the same time. This low memory gives the boards the right flex e feel. We recommend the Classic PU technology to the riders who love a comfortable and pure surfing feel under their feet.
The new LTE technology comes straight from the ultimate moulded surfboards technology which consists of a high definition EPS core, made with a high definition “Super EPS“mould, which is then injected with 36 Kgs/m3 density bits. This phenomenal core is so strong that you could ride it on the water without any lamination on it! The Full Glass layup makes the board super flexible to ride and really strong to impact resistance, creating unmatched durability.
