Hence the name, the Banana possesses some serious rocker. Greg Webber and Shane Herring used to make performance boards with heaps of rocker back in the 90's for serious waves. Webber has further developed this shape with Kelly Slater to create the Banana, which is far more user-friendly than it's 90's predecessors but still meant to be surfed in better than average waves.

The Banana has a smooth outline curve from nose to tail, a slight bump wing in front of the fins, as well as a generous single to double concave bottom contour. The end result is an extremely high performance surfboard that can be pushed hard through turns, while holding it's own in deep barrels. In other words, the carving rail turns and extreme tube riding that Kelly was doing at Pipe on the smaller days during the 2015 Masters.  

CONSTRUCTION
Tech: FST  By combining this high-performance shape with Firewire’s World Tour proven Future Shapes Technology (FST), the performance levels are as good as the waves it is designed to be ridden in. The Banana is the board you want for charging in solid conditions.
