Mid Length surfboard - Bandito Redesign

Posted by on

A new era of a more retrospective surfboard designs the so called Mid Length surfboards is on a high request from surfers and surfboard builders around globe are introducing their designs with different variations, from twin fins to single fins or five fin set ups.

We’re seeing more and more in the line up, like anywhere, if you’ve recently traveled to California or Bali you see a lot of those boards, no matter the conditions if it’s small or head high, overhead waves. If you are looking for an all-rounder and one board quiver, mid length can be this type of a surfboard.

This is what is all about, diversity and how to catch more waves. I mean imagine you haven’t surfed for a while and you grab your 7’2” mid length and go out in waist high surf, that would be the best day of your life!

What we see is that through the years, surfboard evolution has been leading the market and more friendly and fun shapes like fish, twin fins or mid length surfboards are introduced to surfers.

A high adaptation as we see, imagine you are a longboarder but you want to surf big waves and you have to duck dive bigger sets, mid length is a great alternative type of a surfboard.

This is how we orchestrated the redesign of Bandito model as a mid length surfboard model.

Shaper John Tsoutis has taken the original Bandito design and thinned out the rail band.

A softer more refined deck leading to a softer but still foamy rail. Squash tail softer deck edged in the tail block. Concaves are slightly different as main approach is double concaves comparing with the original Bandito’s single concave.

That means more glide and speed generating, not to mention how easy this surfboard can catch the waves. This board is all about fun, a pleasure to surf and might be even your every day surfboard.

Dimensions vary from 6’6” to 8’0” in our eco friendly eps-epoxy-carbon stringer technology.

We do make these surfboards in different tails like round and round pins as well.

The rail profile in addition with the refined curved rocker will allow for turning the board with speed and get you where you desire with ease. Great for engaging your rail in open waves, grinding through the sections this board is super fun to surf in plethora of conditions.

Who surfs mid lengths?

Maybe you, when the waves are knee high but still want to perform and glide a bit faster comparing with your longboard, or maybe you, that you are tired of competing with groms that paddle forever.

Less volume in the nose and the tail and added length still makes this board trim well and turn nicely, I wouldn’t recommend this board for tight turns or getting vertical but it can definitely handle different wave types. So many fin options to try out and each one of them can radically transform how the board surfs.
