Best Thruster 6 foot Kite Surf Board - 08

The Best Surfboards are designed to make the progression from twin-tip and flat water to wave-riding as smooth, easy, and as much fun as possible. The R&D team has spent years circling the globe chasing waves on every continent to enable them to create a range of boards that tackle all conditions, from fast-rolling overhead sets to quick pounding shore breaks.

With metric dimensions of 183.1 x 47.9 x 6.2cm, the Best Surf 6’0” has more width and more float than the 5’7”, making it more suitable for beginner to intermediate or heavier riders. If you are making the progression from twin-tip riding to wave-riding and want the easiest transition from flat water to surf, then the Best Surf 6’0” is the perfect choice.

Designed for charging slower breaks and less steep faces, the 6’0” has slightly less nose rocker than the 5’7”. With a more progressive rail transition across the middle third of the board, the 6’0” also delivers a more stable platform than the 5’7”, but not at the expense of easy turning and manoeuvrability.

The progressive rail profile on the 6’0” is perfectly tuned for its intended conditions. Transitioning from soft to hard around the mid-section of the board, and dropping towards the tail, our progressive rail profile combined with a subtle bottom concave creates a board with great straight line stability even when cranked over onto the rail. Retaining the squash-tail shape of the smaller board, the 6’0” offers a stable ride, yet still enables the surfboard to remain loose while serving up hugely powerful bottom turns. The squash-tail is a great tail shape for any standard of surfer, can be used in both small and overhead waves, and gives great handling when ridden as a directional as you head out to the line-up.

The Best Surf 6’0” uses the latest seamless board construction, with a micro-fine matt surface finish that sheds water like sharkskin, minimizing drag and maximizing board efficiency. Our 3-section EVA deck pad system gives you support and control where you need it, with a raised heel section kickpad for throwing down those explosive snaps.

A ‘Thruster’ set up gives the optimum mix of traction, drive and flow. Fin rake and profile have been meticulously tuned for the board’s intended conditions, while still allowing the Best Surf to be easy and predictable in flatter water and on the face of faster sets. The Thruster layout increases the board's ability to change direction quickly without losing speed, allowing you to stay on that wave all the way to the beach. If you already have great kitesurfing ability and are looking for a Thoroughbred wave-riding board for all-round conditions, then the Best Thruster 6’0” will be your perfect choice.
