Designed by Darren Handley to be a versatile all-around performance model. The Black Diamond is the perfect option for the one board surfer looking for a model that can be surfed in just about every wave type from Bondi to Bali. The extra width that this model carries through the nose, combined with a lower entry rocker makes the Black Diamond easy to paddle and allows the board to generate natural speed as soon as you get to your feet.
The Black Diamonds versatility makes it a very popular model in our store due to its fast responsiveness that offers hold in steeper waves due to the rounded pin tail but still has the balance of planing speed in small average surf.
The Black Diamond is a great performance shape to ride for the advanced surfer,but also a versatile option for intermediate surfers looking to progress to a shortboard shape if ridden in slightly larger dimensions.
