When something isn’t broke, there’s no need to fix it. That said, Britt Merrick and Dane Reynolds still felt a few slight refinements would make an already epic board that much better. And it did: The merits to this update can be seen in Dane’s new surf film The Electric Acid Surfboard Test. A big fan of single concave, Dane asked Britt to take out the vee from the original Neck Beard, creating single throughout. This changed the rocker landscape some, but in a very positive way-enhancing its wave entry, down-the-line speed, and overall control. They also widened the tail block 1/2″ and added a slight hip, resulting in increased responsiveness and maneuverability.
