The Dirty Mermaid is an amazingly versatile design. Inspired by the …Lost Rocket, one of the most popular boards in the world, it has nice full outline, relaxed rocker and generous volume. A fast, easy-riding board, it thrives in waist-high to overhead waves, and a deep single concave make it turn and fly like no other. We recommend you ride the Dirty Mermaid around 2- 3” shorter than your height or your usual shortboard. Don’t go stingy on the width and thickness – curves are the best, and foam is your friend. We also encourage you to experiment with tail shapes depending on what type of wave you are surfing.
