Surfing with my dog Maca over the years made me crave a longboard that could take the added weight of a 60-lb child or dog but without the tendency to pearl. Later when I had my first daughter, I made this board. I tested it with Maca first and it worked perfectly. Now I surf every weekend with my daughter on it and it works great. When riding with someone else it's critical to have a board that won't pearl or be unstable. The shallow rolling vee, foil, soft rails and nose rocker are all designed to make surfing with your loved ones easy and safer than a typical longboard.
