Arakawa Half Pint 5'8 x 20.25 x 2.56 Surfboard
This board is essentially the Stubby 2.0. Same flat rocker and flat deck, this little nugget packs volume. Scale it down a several inches shorter than your normal shortboard, and you'll have a quick and effortless little whip for the small days. The short length and compact volume make it stick to your feet and glide through the flats. The Half-pint is perfect for spicing up the less than average days and keep you motivated to surf when the waves just don't. It's just about as close to that soap bar/twin fin feel as you can get with a thruster or quad set up. The rocker and outline outline have been refined and the nose now has a slight beak finish.

Building a board in PU/PE means using a Polyurethane foam blank and glassing it with polyester resin. This is how the majority of today’s surfboards are built. It is not a new way to make a board, but the materials are very stable, strong, consistent, and easy to work with. PU foam is closed celled, meaning it won’t easily soak in water if you ding your board, and that also means that it doesn’t absorb too much resin when getting glassed, keeping your board light. Many surfers prefer the feel of PU/PE boards because that is what they have ridden all their lives, and because they feel really good.
