The Surf Station Gator surfboard is low to the ground with it's short and stubby design. Take a traditional thruster and shorten it, widen it, and give it bumps in the rear of the rail, and you have an all around fun surfboard! Designed for the small gutless waves of North Florida, but really this board can be ridden anywhere. On days when you want more glide, float, and carry through, yet you want the turning of the board to be loose, this is an obvious choice. Ride it shorter than you are tall and you will have a shorter turning radius for great fun in small to mid sized surf. When the waves look like they may not be fun, the Gator is like the Florida Gators, a winner. The Gator can come though every time!
