5’8 Roger Hinds Nomad – Fusion HD – Futures – 5 Fin
A FUNctional shortboard that makes riding a small board more approachable. The Nomad has a shortboard high-performance rocker combined with a larger planning surface and a thinner overall foil, which creates a more responsive, versatile surfboard. The added fullness and width of the outline allow you to catch waves like a longboard, turn like a shortboard, and surf fast and loose, it puts the fun back in surfing.
Like the Dream Fish, due to Roger’s unique fin box placements and when combined with his custom NVS fins The Nomad can be ridden as a Thruster, Twin Fin, or Quad depending on the fin setup you choose. Run it as a quad and it really loosens up, as a twin fin it’s a speed demon that will fly down the line, as a thruster it will allow you to carve tight arcs in the pocket and under the lip. The “Nomad” will improve your surfing while giving you versatile options of Thruster, Twin Fin, or Quad.
