Now in its second year the Model X sits atop the Phase 5 Hybrid lineup. This board is designed to offer top-of-the-line
performance, and unmatched surface (down the line) speed for larger
riders. The Model X is a "fun shape” inspired board that offers a very
stable surface area for the rider. Phase 5 shaped the Model X with a single
winged fish tail design for more speed, drive and control in the wave.
The Model X comes standard with three 2" thruster fins.
The 2" thruster fins give the board a perfect hybrid surf style feel. Remove
the center fin and ride it twin for a looser feel. You can also try
riding it with a single fin or even change to the optional 1" skim fins.
This will make the board a lot looser and will give it a very
definite skim feel. There are many different fin combinations that you
can use, we recommend trying several. I personally ride mine with two 1" fins, you will be amazed at how changing
the fin set up will effect the feel of the board.
The Model X is 1″ thick, 58″ in
length and wrapped in a full carbon lay-up making this the ultimate
skim/surf hybrid unlike anything else!
