Okinawa is a Japanese prefecture comprising more than 150 islands in the East China Sea between Taiwan and Japan's mainland. It's known for its tropical climate, broad beaches and coral reefs.

Our board ‘The Okinawa ‘ was designed to be a small wave magnet even though it can hold its own in bigger stuff.

The Okinawa has a wider than usual plan shape. The wide nose with low entry rocker, coupled with increased volume around the chest area allows for easy paddling. The flat entry to the front foot and a single concave running right through to the tail gives it its ultimate speed. Don’t be fooled by the wide tail !!! It has a subtle diamond and It has enough tail rocker and our magic vee near the fins will allow for aggressive directional change and looseness without loss of speed.

It’s most effective as a quad but it has a 5 fin set up for your preference.Perfect south coast board that likes travelling!

CONSTRUCTION POLYURETHANE/POLYESTER

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. Shibui surfboards are built from the best materials out there, we do not cut corners on quality, if need advice please contact us.
