The Merman bridges the gap between the Dirty Mermaid and a standard shortboard. It’s user friendly but has plenty of high performance characteristics – whether you’re a pro looking for a grovel board or an intermediate surfer looking for a more accessible shortboard, the Merman is for you. Its rocker outline is similar to that of a standard shortboard, giving great turning and carving capability, but it’s wider and thicker, meant to be ridden 2” to 4” shorter than your own height. If you’re a bigger guy, don’t go quite as short; if you do, add a bit more foam in width and thickness. Pricing starts at $850 for plain white board with three fin setup.
