Riva Classic MkII [Fin: No Fin]
Notify me when back in stock
Inspired by the classic Italian speedboats, the Riva Diamond Tail is a thing of beauty. It’s the tuxedo in our line up. It works equally well in a gnarly 10 foot line up as it does hanging on an art gallery wall.
The Riva Classic Diamond Tail is that rare beast that is able to blend both form and function. The glossy polished wood veneer, fibreglass and epoxy resin covers a light-weight EPS core.
It has a slightly broadened nose to assist with planning and wall drops, with a small amount of rocker. The hull leads into a flat transition area for speed, then moving into a deep concave region towards the tail. The concave area serves two main purposes: (a) to increase the overall planning area, and hence generate more lift and speed, and (b) generate more drive and directional control.
Why You Should Use A Riva?
The Riva is light and strong. It's made with a high density surfboard quality EPS Foam Core, covered in a thin beautiful wood veneer, fibreglass and epoxy resin. The tight rails and hydrodynamic concave makes the Riva a wave holding machine.
The board features:
- A wide comfortable handstrap with neoprene pad to protect your hand. The strap is easily adjustable in the water with one hand.
- We designed and made our own handstrap plugs so there is no compromise. These strap mounts are without a doubt, the best in the industry! They are specifically designed for handplanes.
- Comfortable wrist leash that integrates with the handstrap mounts
- GoPro plug on the nose,
- a single FCS plug on the hull for a fin (fin not included)
- The shape is the result of countless hours of experimentation over the last few years. This board is an optimal size (not too big, not too small) and is easy to swim with. The shape reduces face splash, and planes beautifully.
- Having the best bling on the beach
- A performance handplane for speed, control and manoeuvrability
- She’s light strong easily transportable and doesn’t hamper your swim stroke
- Wide comfortable hand strap gives you great directional control for both swimming and surfing
- The proprietary strap mount system integrates your hand with the board in a natural fashion
- When a single fin is used (not included) – fantastical control whilst not sacrificing maneuverability. Works with the concave to enhance tail lift (hydro-planning)
The board has been constructed from lightweight high density EPS Foam, giving the perfect balance of lightness and flex. The foam has been covered with thin wood veneer, 4oz fibreglass matting and epoxy resin.
