Fletcher Chouinard Designs DM3

Manufacturer Description
With less entry rocker than the average shortboard, and more volume under the chest the DM3 surfboard paddles faster and gets into waves without pushing water. This design also makes the surfboard fast down the line when your weight is forward. The back half – the tail rocker, volume and rails – is built for turning under pressure: there is less volume in the tail and the rails so you can sink the rail and turn hard with control. The bottom has a single concave throughout, with the back third of the board being the deepest. This provides lift, speed and looseness. A slight V out of the tail helps the board quickly transition from rail to rail.

This is a high performance shortboard. It is great for good waves but not so good at the mushy smaller waves. For those waves I would ride a fish or fish hybrid. Epoxy construction, it's a beautiful shortboard.

This is my favorite shortboard i've ever ridden. It has a slightly fuller outline which makes it work in fatter sections, but it holds great on steep drops. Like most shortboards it needs a decent swell to come alive, so I still ride my hybrid on smaller days, but chest high and above this is without a doubt my favorite ride.
