Indo Board Guide 2017: Kirk Bierke Shapes, Island Round Pin 5

8 May 2017 0 Share

KIRK BIERKE SHAPES | ISLAND ROUND PIN 5 (IRP)

This board is 5'10
Kirk Bierke
is a renowned charger from the NSW South Coast, father of 2016 Red Bull Cape Fear champ Russell Bierke. This board is a really simple round pintail with subtle concave and not a whole lot of rocker. There is a lot of outline curve but not much rocker. It's got double 6" glass deck and single 6" glass on the bottom, it's as strong as you can get without making it too heavy. This board is for Russell who is 67kg. The wide point is slightly further up than his regular board for an easy paddle and softened rails for barrel riding. 

WHERE IT WILL PERFORM: This would be great at Keramas or Padang Padang with big barrels and simple clean, carving turns. You can trust this kind of board and sit nice and deep in the barrel in hollow waves. 

SIZE RANGE: 4-8ft

SKILL LEVEL: Best for a specific wave in mind, High Intermediate - Pro
