Fantatic Stylemaster – Elegant Style

Airton Cozzolino finds time off the Maui coast to explore the rails and dynamics of Fanatic Sup’s Stylemaster.  Shaped like a classic longboard, the Stylemaster is easy to paddle and offers smooth turns and glide to help paint a canvas with every wave. Airton says this shape and size board, at 9’0 x 29″ 115 L, is a perfect choice for less aggressive waves anywhere from one to six foot.

It’s super thin surfing rails for performance, wide nose and classic longboard rocker and outline allows Airton to explore “less radical but more elegant maneuvers” in smaller surf.

When the swell  is on, Airton switches to his ProWave 7’6 for some stomp action and speed down the line.

Less radical?  Not with this guy.
