THE ANDO

"I normally ride my shortboard in a 5’9. It’s got a really clean outline and flows really good when putting it on rail and releasing off the lip. It all kinda works.” -Craig Anderson

The Ando is Craig Anderson’s signature all round performance shortboard model and is ideal for everyday wave conditions. It’s a quiver staple and the type of shortboard designed to progress your surfing in waves from 2-6ft. In saying that, you’ll also find this model scoring some nice heat wins by the elite on the WCT including the likes of CJ Hobgood and Travis Logie.

The entry rocker is flatter than your average short board, creating more paddle power and generating more speed and drive from the front foot. There is medium lift in the tail to allow the board to fit in the wave when surfing off the back foot. This blends into a medium double concave within the single which transitions into a vee double out the last 3” of the board to give a nice release.

The outline is a little fuller in nose and tail than a performance contest board, which provides more surface planing area for stability and speed.

The Ando is the type of board you would take out to progress your surfing in waves from 2-6ft and get the same feeling that Ando has under his feet.

THOUGHTS

"It’s got a really clean outline and flows really good when putting it on rail and releasing off the lip. It all kinda works. My 5’9 shortboard with the standard round tail, is how I like to see myself surf."
