The Bean is essentially a hybrid model offering an exciting alternative to riding more traditional shortboard designs. Appropriately named, the Bean has a full nose template and added width through the centre which transitions smoothly into a tail outline typical of a standard shortboard.
The unique shape of the Bean, combined with the relaxed full-length rocker profile, provides a platform for efficient paddling, quick start-up acceleration, and flow in fuller waves. The Bean also delivers exceptional performance in bigger conditions, proving the true versatility of this model.
Fast and full of spark as a thruster or a quad; the Bean offers acrobatic performance in the smaller sizes, and reliability in the higher volume sizes. As a general rule you can ride the Bean 3-to-6 inches shorter than your regular shortboard.

PE construction combines a polyurethane foam core with high-grade timber stringer, which is laminated by hand using fiberglass cloth and an exclusive epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is used in PE construction for two important reasons. One, to reduce the rate of yellowing and discoloration of the board and two, our exclusive epoxy is more flexible than polyester and maintains the lively flex pattern typically associated with a new board.
All PE boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand. These boards are light, have incredible acceleration and speed, and feel remarkably sensitive under your feet.
