How is the Point Break different from the Search, specifically?

This surf expedition type board has been appealing to me for a long time.

This board was designed specifically for surf.

2” added width will give more rail curve combined with the rounded pin tail and added fin boxes will loosen it up on turns.

The result will be a board that will be very stable in all conditions and easily paddled to remote points, offshore reefs or river mouths to score great sessions away from the crowds.

Not designed as a big wave gun, but for the waves most of us actually ride.

RbGar also added a kick pad, arch bar, two leash plugs and a ledge handle.

I loved RbGar’s Plan, and talked to the US distributor about adding some to the spring container..... but first, I wanted to talk with Bert to get his thoughts on the overall shape and width..... if we should drop the width to 31” for the added boards.... he said no, the 32” really adds a nice rail curve through the hips and tail... leave it at 32”!
Bert is very stoked on this board  and agreed that with all the changes, it really wasn’t a “Search” any more :)

I will still love my 14’ Search for my Flat-water paddling, but I can’t wait to get this board into some of our New England points! It will make winter fun again!

The Point Break looks pretty much perfect for one of my local breaks. I’d prefer it if it was 31” wide since I’m not as big as some of you guys. But this deserves to sell well. Good work.

I believe 4 will be available, unless US distributor has sold some already. I hear Primal Surf in Brigantine NJ will be stocking Sunova’s, looks like a really nice shop! www.psurf.com
