Our Testers Say:

“Great light wind board that packs some pop and good flex that ate chop up nicely. With excellent upwind ability, good edge control and excellent carving, this board is very comfortable to ride and the pads have a lot of cushion,” Donovan Brown.

Tkb Says:

The Patrol with a glass layup is the sister shape to the carbon Ultra. Both featured toned down bottom contours with a gentle center spine, a double concave center and an overall flatter rocker for light wind performance. The Patrol has a little softer flex compared to the carbon-based Ultra and tester’s feedback reflected this with praise for the Patrol’s very forgiving ride in the choppier conditions. In the larger of the two sizes, testers gave the 148cm excellent reviews for its upwind performance in light wind, and fun carving as well as good freestyle performance for a twin tip in the light wind category.
