by VON SOL Surfboards
Our most popular design in the Von Sol surfboard collection.
The Shadow single wing pin tail was designed largely in an attempt to help nswer the question, “What’s next after the fish?” With a fish-like surface area, combined with the versatility and maneuverability of a high-performance shortboard, the Shadow is your answer.
Surfboard Design Details
The front half of the board is similar to that of the Moonfish, allowing for easy paddling, early wave entry, and immediate planing and speed. The back half is all business with a single elevated wing providing release when you need it, fairly foiled out round-pin tail that both skates across softer sections and bites into the wave face for hard driving carves, and a quad setup to maximize manoeuvrability, speed, and high performance.
An optional 5th fin box adds additional versatility to the model and has allowed the design to successfully perform as a tri-fin and twin plus trailer setup as well.
The Shadow is often referred to as the ultimate “quiver killer” because it excels across an extremely wide range of conditions, from small and mushy, to overhead and firing.
If there’s one surfboard you can bring to the beach on any given day and know that it will not just do the job, but will STOKE you out, the Shadow is it!
