Fourth Surfboards Weekend Rockstar Flexlite FCS II 5 Fin Surfboard

The Weekend Rockstar:
Starting with the outline, this board has the look of a fish; a wider nose and pulled in swallow tail, but when you really dissect the Weekend Rockstar's outline you start to see the secrets. The parallel rails give this fish heaps of forward trajectory and the bullet like tail curves offer great pivot when needed through turns. The nose, although wide, has a fast curve for the overall length of the board to make sure there are no issues with bogging rails and bigger turns in weaker waves. The rocker is medium throughout with slight kick in the tail to keep it lively, and the foil is that of a high performance all-rounder - which in this case was based on the shank.
This combo gives you the extra stability and control of a fish with the sensitivity of a more high performance board so when long boarders are cruising the line-up you are up and about too shredding the face like you have a rocket in your pocket.
The single concaves offer lift and control and the rail shape is that of a performance short board. All in all you have an incredibly fast board that burns through weaker waves and utilises any sections you get with performance lines. It's easy to catch waves on, it works in anything from knee high to overhead waves and makes general everyday surfing easy.
Who should ride this board ?
Anyone. If you are a decent surfer looking for something forgiving and effortless with performance at its core or an up and coming surfer who wants to improve without battling for waves on a shortboard then this is the stick for you. Anyone can ride this board with the confidence that they are getting the most out of the waves on offer 90% of the time.
The Flex-Lite construction ticks all the boxes from strength, flex, control, feel, weight and most importantly, versatility. When it comes to understanding flow, drive, control and speed, Fourth looked at flex patterns and torque levels at different speeds. The aim was to ensure that you can load up and release energy through turns using the curves of your surfboard that will keep your rails engaged with the face of the wave. The versatility of the Flex-Lite construction is unrivalled in performance.
