Ding-free soft construction meets real wave riding performance with the Laguna. A wood stringer runs up the center line of the board and is layered with a reinforced top and bottom sheet to maintain rigidity. The soft edges make this surfer extremely durable whether it gets dropped or shoved into the back of the boat. The soft construction is also easy on the boat's gel coat. Don't be fooled by the price, the Laguna is built to shred.
