We actually have many different options with our towboards; it all depends on the wave conditions and sizes you are surfing. Generally you need to surf your towboard about 3 or 4 inches shorter than your shortboard. If you are surfing solid waves which most tow surfers are then we keep super hard fine rails, with deep concaves and a heavy glass jobs helping the board cut through wind chop and any steps in the wave. Tow straps are available and channels can be positioned to your own specifications depending on whether you want the board set up for either a goofy or natural footer, or we can cater for both. You ride towboards thinner and narrower than your shortboard, this is all worked out when ordering your board and talking to Scott Peberdy.
