When the waves get solid, the Porto comes to life. The ideal step-up with a connective link from your performance board to a performance-based step up. A favourite amongst the /ADV team and guys that love to give it a nudge.
Originally a personal hand shaped board for a trip to the wave rich Portugal while on a shaping stint in the Basque Country, Spain. The waves pack some punch, so the focus was on a curvy, connective tissue board that would power up when under pressure.
Full rocker throughout the board, with an equally consistent deep single to double for speed and grip under pressure.
Being a board that you would be using in heavier conditions the volume is carried evenly throughout the deck line with a dropped rail profile for sensitivity.
The outline is active in nature, pulled in through the tail and nose with a hidden bump-hip in the mid drift for sparky that you would usually fee in a shortboard.
