This model is an “eggy” looking shape that allows the rider to trim high on the wave in the middle of the board or race down the line on the tail, whichever the rider prefers. The perfect board for beginner to advanced.

The Takayama Scorpion II
Donald wanted to make a wider tail, narrower nose and more rounded out version of the popular Scorpion for his friends on the south shore of Oahu. This wide tail volume allows the surfer to go a little shorter in board length if they prefer and allows for multiple fins combinations (single, 2+1 or quad setups). This board excels in small California style surf to well overhead island style barrels. Very fast paddler with easy tail control, this is a must have in every surf quiver!
