The Mango Pit: ultra fast, energetic yet laid back, just loose enough and super fun. The Mango Pit has mini simmons inspired aspects, but is quite different overall to produce a more functional surfboard, especially here on the U.S. east coast. The Mango Pit is a unique combination of mini simmons, fish, shortboard and longboard design aspects. Ultra low rocker gives the Mango Pit inherent extremely high speed, but the slight exponential belly in the nose and through the front half of the rail rocker keeps it nice and catch free on steeper drops and bowly waves. The deep double concaves under foot and out the tail add responsiveness and keep the looseness of the wide tail under control, keeping it a bit loose but not overly so. The Mango Pit is designed to catch tons of waves with ease and be versatile, even replacing the longboard in a lot of waves; it can handle the smallest summery wave a short board can possibly paddle in to, and even some nice little almondly barrels. It's designed for the energetic surfer who doesn't take surfing quite so seriously, as well as the soul surfer.
