The Katana is a majestic representation of the ancient Japanese sword used by the Samurai.Emphasis on shape and curves to demonstrate fluidity of movement and gracefulness.
Therefore it was important to design the shape accordingly! It’s sleek plan shape is tailor made to get maximum performance out of
it as well as control for walking to the nose.The tail on the Katana is pulled into a baby squash tail to give the balance of hold and release on critical turns!
The bottom shape of the Katana has a single concave to a double running right through it which graduates into a vee just in front of the fins.
This, along with a wicked little tail flick, gives the tail the extra lift needed to keep it light and easy to throw into turns but the subtle vee also helps to keep the tail in the wave when walking to the nose.
Overall this performance longboard will suit your requirements in all departments.
Polyurethane blank with polyester resin is the most widely used construction for surfboards and has been for years. Recently polyester resin has become stronger and more ultraviolet stable which means the boards last longer and stay white even when exposed to strong sunlight on surf trips.At Shibui surfboards we use a resin called Isophthalic which is the best polyester resin on the market, your board will stay whiter for longer.
The polyurethane blanks we use are from US Blanks which supply all the top brands worldwide, they're strong and light.
