"This Critter is a mix of everything I personally love in a surfboard! After surfing so many different shapes and sizes, I’ve combined all my favorites aspects into one design.
The rocker is staged low to medium, with a large flat middle section providing a fat sweet spot that is easy to find. The middle has a medium single concave for stability and speed under the front foot. Incredible paddle power comes from volume being pushed forward in the chest. I LOVE a wider tail but hate how hard they are to control, so to offset that I added a DEEP double concave with 4 channels that increases the rail line rocker, allowing very tight turns. The tail shape is a wide diamond with a shallow strait V swallow and bladed out edges for added grip. The outline is full in the nose and tail and can be ridden short for a skatier feel, or long for a flowier feel. There is a very slight side curve in front of the leading fins that adds quick response in steep faces and a break right behind the leading fins for release and pivot.
My favorite part is that it is designed to work with any fin set up: quad, twin, thruster, single fin, 2+1, asym fin setups, and twin with trailer. They all work! The whole purpose of the Barracuda was to create the perfect everyday 1 board quiver, for the average surfer (i.e. me) who wants to have a lot of speed and control. Most boards that go fast have no control… this board does both :)" - Caleb Moritz
