Summer Vessels! 9’6″ Banana!

Filed under: Harbour

This is a 9’6″ Banana that has a 1″ Cedar stringer, a blue resin tint top & bottom, two black pinlines and a black band to give it a classic feel! There’s a “50th Anniversary” laminate on the bottom which we only put on the boards for 2009! I can’t believe this one is still sitting on the rack!

The Banana is our all-around good time model. You can’t go wrong with this one. It’s our highest performing cruiser model in the line up. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned vet, the Banana will surely generate smiles for miles!

(web description)The original Banana model was designed in 1963 – it was yellow and just happened to look like a giant banana in the surf. It was unique in that it had significantly more rocker than the typical surfboard built during this era and may have been the first board designed with real rocker. Since then it has gone through many modifications and decades later the Banana model remains as the anchor of our surfboard line. It is the universal surfboard with few limitations. This model remains the best choice for the surfer needing some floatation and paddling ease without sacrifice in maneuverability. The Banana Model is a must have!

For 2009 we increased the nose width 1/8”, giving more stability. We digitally corrected the rocker. The corners of the tail block have been slightly rounded making it more forgiving, and because the softening is less than the typical squash, the drive has not been sacrificed. The Banana is now the closest to High Performance we have in our Cruiser line.
