Keep in mind that this board is most suited to down the line waves with power, so none of our surf shapes are more “performance” than they other, they are all designed for maximum performance in specific conditions
Looking for a dedicated down the line board? The high rocker and single concave shape delivers an extremely responsive, predictable board specifically for the advanced wave purist. The 2014 Converse is ideal for side and side/off conditions in medium to large surf.
The Active construction option offers a performance upgrade through reduced weight and flexible Carbon Construction, for lighter wind, crossover surf or a rider who demands the ultimate surfboard.
As the converse has the most rocker and straps far back it can be challenging going upwind for some riders. If you re riding in straps it helps to take your back foot out of the strap. Avoid the converse if you are a beginner surf rider.
