The Riot is another high-performance grovel-machine. At first glance the Riot looks short and stout, "brother" to the GX. At a closer glance, however, it has more rail (rocker) curve that comes from blending in bottom elements of the K4 model. The classic groveler is wide and meaty, the ultra-flat rockers sometimes making them less than maneuverable in waves above chest high, but the blending of the K4 rail curve and concave livens up the feel of the GX outline. The result is an increase in drive and speed with full rotation turns and release off.

The Riot outline fills the gap between the K4 and GX. The stringer line rocker is similar to the GX, but it's deeper concaves and more rail curve take after the K4.

Construction

Polyurethane/Polyester Resin
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.
