Performance

Designed to be surfed as a Thruster in the 3 to 4 feet range and as a Quad from 1 to 2 feet. The team usually surf 5Spark as a Thruster and their go to smaller wave board. Surfs like a souped up high performance short board and accelerates through turns and releases the fins out of the top of the wave in a predictable manner. The Quad fin placement is old-style, meaning the fins are slightly closer to the rail than the modern Kelly Quad version. As a Quad, 5Spark exhibits extreme speed in 1 to 2 foot surf with sharp direction changes possible, but less predictable slide at the end of the turn, that’s the ‘Spark’ element.
