The Alley Cat should be ordered the same length or a little shorter than your height. It has a medium to low entry rocker leading out to a medium tail exit. The outline over all is wider and there is more volume throughout the board than your standard F-series high performance board. The Alley Cat was one of our most popular sellers through 2014. First designed as a competition board for the average waves of the WQS it quickly became a favourite of team riders and clients in a variety of conditions from 1 feet summer beaches ti 4 feet pumping beaches and points. the single to deep double concave give this board a ton of squirt and hold. Guys with heavy back foot will appreciate the drive and hold. Order this board the same height as yourself or a little shorter.
