The GT (Go-To) is the model Luke and Matt Banting have worked closely on refining over the last few years.
A high performance short board The GT has evolved along with the progression of Matts surfing ability and extra muscle power.
This means that we have added a smidge of extra width and thickness to the nose area and under the chest, to help with stability when landing big airs. This extra volume also enables Matt to ride his boards slightly shorter, fitting into more critical sections.
The nose rocker has been dropped a fraction for added get up and go.

Although this model is primarily developed for a high calibre of surfer it's also offered as The GT-X, typically a more user-freindly option for the everyday surfer.
The GT-X has some added extra width and thickness and has been designed with a round tail to maintain control which also helps with hold if surfing in bigger conditions, making it an extremely versatile shape.
Matt has also added a couple of GT-X's to his quiver; riding this variation as a semi step-up of the model for the 19/2 Hawaiian season - 6' / 6'1 x 18 3/4 x 2 3/8
