Description (Brief):
The gritted sandpaper was replaced by forty, large metal staples which were added to the top and bottom front of the board for the user to stand on for better grip on the board. This red snurfer model also included a metal skeg or keel added to the bottom which enhanced steering. The trademark rope “leash” also made steering easier and kept the board with the user if a fall occurred.
