The Microwave is a remake of a popular shape ridden in the 1980's. The wider outline of this surfboard helps you to paddle very well, which adds up to a higher wave count during your session. With the increasing volume of bodies in the water, it has become a challenge to catch a lot of waves, no matter where you are surfing. This is why the Microwave has been added to the Sauritch Surfboards play list. This model has a very curvy outline, which makes for plenty of maneuverability and speed. The Microwave is similar to the Sauritch model, but has an added set of wings, which pull in the tail, for more holding power during bottom turns. The bottom comes with a slight single to double concave, with a little "v" off the tail, giving the surfboard a smooth rail to rail transition. Try the Microwave with a 5 fin set up and feel the difference between a tri fin as opposed to a quad.
