O'Brien Forte 51'' 2021
The crew at The Great PNW was so stoked with our new Forte that we decided to do a collaboration project with them and create a limited edition. They penned an incredible graphic which celebrates both of our companies’ Pacific Northwest heritage and we decided to modify the the fin setup; completely changing the dynamic of how you can ride this board. Don’t worry this Forte still pushes the envelope of skim style surfing with more width in the tip and tail for stability and drive and a thin profile for its quick, carvy feel… but now it also features 3 FCS compatible fin boxes so you can tweak your fin settings to meet your desired performance characteristics. Go with the small single fin for that true skim feel and enjoy effortless spins and shuvs or change it up by throwing all the fins on for more of a surf feel with greater hold and powerful turns. Either way you choose to ride it, the this limited edition Forte delivers endless fun on the wave!
RIDER PROFILE: Skim style surfers desiring more float and forward drive out of their board.
