Byrne Surf | Summer Surfboard Buyer Guide

(image 3 of 6)

Model: Peanut • Dimensions: 5’8” x 19 1/2” x 2 1/2” • Shaper: Michael Baron • Description: The Peanut was created for having lots of fun on those small mushy days. Having a fuller nose, a very low entry rocker, and a wide point that is two inches higher than normal boards, this model paddles good and surfs fast, holding its speed on flatter, weaker waves. Peanuts are ridden two to six inches shorter, a half inch to an inch wider, and a fourth to a half inch thicker than normal everyday boards. The Peanut also offers great versatility with the possibility for the five-fin setup, so it can be ridden as a tri or quad fin.
