9'6" Gato Heroi Playboy (Used)
Robin Kegel of Gato Heroi is the mad scientist, eccentric board builder that developed what we consider to be the king pin of high-speed logs, The Playboy. Seriously, face meltingly fast! Flat rocker profile, very knifey rail foil, exaggerated hips set back from center, pulled in nose, and a blend of all these wild attributes that makes the entire package look so seamless. Flip over the Playboy to check out the equally radical bottom contour, a deep rolled entry with a deeper vee that apexes about two feet in front of the fin before rolling back out towards the tail. This specific board comes complete with a sexy glass on that makes the model a little more noserider oriented without taking away from the off-the-tail turnability. Nose to tail, the Playboy is meant for you to dance around every square inch with agility, sensitivity, and power. You can see the major influence that Transition Era style boards of 1968 had on Kegel with this model, we'll let the heavy hitters of the Transition Era show you how this board should be surfed, specifically in the below compilation from 0:40-2:05mins.
Come in and give this board a test ride if you're interested in how it may surf! You can test ride this board through our Surf Club, more information on how that works here.
