9'1" Kris Hall Jazz Cat
The Jazz Cat from Kris Hall is an extremely versatile longboard that can be surfed in a variety of waves. The outline of the board begins with a moderatley pulled in nose and stays relatively parallel until you reach a rounded pulled in tail. The rails are nicely foiled in the nose then transition to a softer rail towards the middle of the board and end in a hard edge in the tail. The bottom contour of the board consists of a slight roll in the nose that move to a subtle single concave that run the remainder of the board. The majority of the rocker in the board lies in the top 1/3 with just a slight flip rolling out the tail. The glassed in flex fin gives this board an incredible lively feeling while still allowing some time to be spent up by the nose.
The Daydream Research Center curates a selection of boards that are best suited for intermediate or higher skill level. The design attributes of these boards can be difficult for those with less surfing experience to enjoy. For surfers who are just starting out, we highly recommend learning on surfboards that are designed for beginners and are happy to help point you in the right direction to find shops that have boards available for your needs. We want to create the best experience for our members and align them with boards that complement their skill level.
