Product Description

Want versatility? Vessel’s Dark Horse is certainly no one-trick pony. The Dark Horse offers a wider profile which is tailored for those smaller days or for surfers who want more paddle power. These spritely high performance shortboards get you into waves earlier and get you across them faster. The Dark Horse was designed with aerial surfers in mind. This board has proven itself as a high performer in waves up to 5 feet. Generous single concave flows from the nose to a slight double through the fins and tail, allowing drive and acceleration through bottom turns and flow between rail-to-rail carves.

This model is available in several different lengths and comes with a five-fin setup giving you the option of either a thruster or quad. Regardless of your weight, height and experience, these boards cater for the pros to the beginners and perform well in a variety of conditions. The torque control carbon tail bands help to improve strength, flex and control. If you’re after a fun, super responsive all-round shortboard, then the Dark Horse is it! Inspired by the latest designs being used on the pro tour, without the price tag.
