The1980 Retro Prois one of Mark Richards most popular Retro models. This is the recreation of one of MR's favourite twin fins which was his magic contest board and originally shaped in 1980.
The outlineof this model has plenty of width under the chest up to the nose, making it a dream to paddle. The classic wing-swallow tail shape reduces the surface area in the tail of the boardgiving it more holding power through turns while the fluted wing adds bite and reduces slide when turning. The deep-V bottom allows the board to flowfrom rail to rail with ease.
The 198 Retro Pro is generally an all round fast, loose, and a 'blast from the past' type of board. The feedback on this model has been extremely positive with everyoneeleborating onhow well it goes todayconsideringit's a 3 year old design.
