One of the first more user-friendly designs of the Shortboard Revolution, the Rincon is named after its first breakthrough performance in early 1968, at Rincon, California - the Queen of the Coast. It followed straight after the deep-vee Plastic Machines of 1967, and the flatter bottom and finer rocker allowed fantastic speed down-the-line, allowing a ride from way out on the Indicator, clear to the highway, on any set wave! It's low rocker, slight vee, rounded bankable rails, and specific fin design deliver sweet, controlled speed and trim, plus smooth arcing turns and acceptable pivots, making it versatile for beach breaks as well as points. Constructed from 1968 materials... Volan cut laps and deck patch to reduce nose weight... the Rincon is one sweet rider with timeless appeal.
