Is this SmoothStar right for me?
The Barracuda (blue) complete surfskate surf trainer with Thruster D technology is designed for young surfing groms up to max height 135cm. It is a super responsive, tight turning, take anywhere surf carving machine. But don't let its size fool you. It's one serious surf training tool designed for younger kids wanting start using proper surf technique, especially when the waves decide to go on holiday!
The 28" Barracuda is smallest model for groms that utilise the full blown Thruster setup. It is suitable for groms that want to take the next step and progress their carving turns. It will be much more responsive than the Mini Grom series but they will require the necessary weight to ride it.
The 28" Barracuda model comes with the new SmoothStar Thruster D technology. The Thruster D is the latest in precision engineering that gives surfers the ultimate surf feeling with 15-12% more hold and drive through your surf turns. It's also lighter and comes with a 5 year warranty - read more.
We've taken all the necessary weight and size off the board to make it super easy and light for groms to travel. As one of their main forms of transport, it makes it easy for them to take it anywhere under the arm and to their friends place. It still provides the functional performance of teen and the adult ranges. As groms start to understand how their bodies control their SmoothStar/surfboards - it gives them full range of movement.
