9'8" Gato Heroi Californian
The Californian is Gato Heroi's hot dogging log. The outline is full with a fair amount of width in the nose and tail. The bottom contour is lightly rolled throughout the board with the reputable, knifey Gato rail foil. The deck has a nicely blended step deck that is subtle yet effective in reducing the swing weight of the log and allowing it to flex slightly more. The rocker profile is well blended with a little extra kick in the nose and tail in comparison to the other Gato Heroi models which suits it well for shredding. Test this guy out, if you fall in love with it we have a new version available here.
