The GT evolved while working with team rider Matt Banting on his 2014 WQS campaign. After he won early in the year at Newcastle we knew the formula was working. After that event the winning board became his favourite go-to (hence the name ‘GT’) board. We made a couple of minor tweaks to the original file throughout the year to gain more drive off the back foot and the outcome is a very reliable surfboard with plenty of performance tucked away under the hood. Matt went on to finish as the highest qualifier on last years WQS and win his maiden WSL heat this week at Snapper Rocks with the GT under foot. The GT suits many other surfers who are chasing a board with drive and plenty of spark.
Recommended with a rounded square tail but also works really well with a round pin especially when the waves are a bit juicier.
