DHD Skeleton Key & Black Diamond

DHD Skeleton Key & Black DiamondWe just got in a big restock of DHD Skeleton Key & Black Diamond models at Zak Surfboards.

The Skeleton Key is a model that has been developed through a collaboration between Darren Handley and his top team rider Mick Fanning. The idea was to create true a performance short board that all surfers could ride.  The formula is simple… take one of Mick’s favorite (& highly refined) shapes, then subtly add more outline in the plan shape, reduce the rocker & increase the volume in the rail a touch.  Sounds like a no brainer right?

DHD Skeleton Key 1The ‘key’ to making this board work for you and I is the way Darren has combined all of these elements together.   A slight hip in the tail has been added to this new fuller outline  &  a lightning fast deep single to double concave.  These two elements combine to  make this board super responsive, snappy & quick in changing from rail to rail (like a more refined board).

DHD Skeleton Key 2The end result is a subtly fuller shape that is just as responsive as a high performance board, yet easier to surf.  This is what makes this new model a MUST  HAVE for your quiver.

DHD Skeleton Key & Black DiamondThis is what Darren Handley (DHD) had to say about the Black Diamond Model:

“This model is the true meaning of versatile… I wanted to create a model that would allow me to out paddle everyone, while still having the performance feel in all types of conditions.  By bringing the widest point forward, increasing the nose area & dropping the entry rocker slightly, the BD paddles extremely well and is fast off the front foot.  This combined with the sexy little round pin which provides hold and smoothness though turns, the BD will handle anything that you throw at it.

DHD Black Diamond 1Can be surfed as a quad or thruster setup depending on the conditions, this model also makes for a handy addition to your travel quiver.  Ride it 3-5 inches shorter as you small wave specialist or 1-2 inches shorter if you are wanting an all rounder.  Get one today!” DHD Black Diamond 2
