The Flare Gun is A step-up that’s more of a step away from struggling on an undervolume shooter. For ease of entry into waves, down the line flow and a touch of flare, the flare gun is a great everyday board for guys who want a bit more rail in the face. Rather than going short and fat, it’s refreshing to spread the foam out and still have a sporty outline, modern curves and performance rails. It’s amazing how hard you can push the flare gun and how many waves you can notch up. It’s also, as the name suggests, a reliable big wave board and threads a nice line in the tube. Run as a two plus one, a single, or custom order as a four plus one (with quad option).
