The Ticket to Ride is a classic Mid Length that offers the best attributes of both shortboards and longboards, it’s the perfect all-arounder. The rounded nose and fuller tail aids in floatation and makes paddling effortless. The Ticket to Ride’s shorter length paired with its 2 + 1 fin setup makes for easy turns and an incredible amount of maneuverability. The TTR’ low to medium rocker really flows through dead sections with minimal effort. A slight lift in the nose makes those late take offs easier and the slight lift in the tail makes for a nice flow through your turns. If you’re looking for stability while still being fun and loose in the pocket the Ticket To Ride is all you need. Great for smaller days where extra volume is necessary to get on the wave. The Ticket to Ride was built simply for the surfer who wants to get in the water without spending a lot.
Best for Beginner to Advanced Surfers – Best in 2′ to Slightly Overhead surf
Build: EPS Gloss
Fins for the Ticket To Ride: We suggest pairing the TTR with our budget friendly composite fins OR any other 2+1 Set up. If you want your board to be “loose” or you have a more aggressive surfing style than the two side fins are not necessary. The two side fins offer additional stability, think of them as “training wheels” – Not necessary but helpful for beginners.
Sizing the center fin should be as follows:
- 7’4″ TTR = 7″ to 8″ fin
- 7’10” Baby Log = 8″ fin
- Larger center fin = More stability
