The Stretch is specifically designed to "Stretch" your time on the nose while still maintaining good overall performance. This was one of the first "reverse" rocker models made for noseriding. In addition, The nose is "cut off" so when nose riding, your weight is a few inches back from where it would normally be if the nose was still there…and it’s got a distinct look!o advanced surfer or the surfer new to nose riding that wants extra stability.
