The Sci-Fi is a board that has an inverted round tail curve. If you take those lines, cut and invert them, they form this bat tail of sorts. It’s a throwback to a board I had as a kid in that way. This tail has tons of area and a relatively flat rocker that helps with lift and planing. The tail and bottom curves give a nice lift and bite but also allow a very maneuverable board with good control. I like the quad version for such a large area but the thruster has a great feel here also.
