Buy this One: The Alligator- DownWind Cruiser/Wave Killer


Downwind fanatics, coastal cruisers and open ocean swell riders- this one is for you. Stu Kenson is selling the Alligator: 100 % Carbon Fiber/Epoxy Construction, 11'6", Five Fin Boxes, Concave deck, custom hot-rod shop paint. This board looks good, surfs good and paddles UNREAL.

If you're doing the big mile down wind paddles this is the one you're looking for- light strong and surf-able! I've done six-mile quick runs with prevailing winds here in California- this thing glides and surfs open ocean swells like a much smaller board.

If you're looking for a board to do it all, and you like the special properties of carbon fiber, this is your board. This is an opportunity to buy a board that is next to impossible to order (carbon is scarce these days and Stu likes to use what he's got on special projects = tough to get him to make a big board like this out of the good stuff). Contact Stu Kenson for further details!.

Hey Linter-

That board is 29" wide. I'm 220 and the thing cruises with me on board. Concave deck is super comfy in tippy conditions. You'd have to contact Stu for a price. He'll be at Surf Expo in Florida- if you're out that way you should go talk to him- he's super in to design stuff. A true master! Drop him an email.

Good Luck-

How do I send you some pics? I live on Maui and on the leading edge of sup here. I have some shots of D. Kalamas new gun and an 18' sup for your neck of the woods. there are no 100% carbon fiber boards only reinforced with carbon. I'm new to computers but learning fast. I'm used to just attaching pics to e-mails, what do I do to get them to you? you will not be disapointed. I feel your pain having to go into that ocean where you live, its your choice aloha b
