Description

Darkhorse 5'8"

The Darkhorse features a glass-wrapped EVA core and wooden I-Beam stringer making it unlike other soft boards on the market today. This glass/foam hybrid board's feel creates a fun, lively, high-performance feeling. Its FCS Fusion compatible fin boxes are glassed-in and PVC reinforced to give you maximum lateral stability and drive through the turns. The foam-backed HDPE skin makes the Darkhorse durable and offers more protection when you get tossed in the shore break.
