Flanagan Alley Cat High Performance Surfboard
Alley Cat is a versatile high-performance shortboard that caters to a wide range of surfers and excels in small wave conditions. This custom-order board can be tailored to your specific needs and is designed to be ridden 1 inch shorter than your standard shortboard. Based on the DNA of the SXE, the Alley Cat is built to handle the everyday waves surfers encounter around the world. It's a great option for soft beach breaks and points, providing speed through softer sections and easy connections for hybrid waves.
Compared to the SXE, the Alley Cat has a slightly narrower outline with more nose rocker, slightly less tail rocker, and a shorter, less pronounced Vee off the tail. The wider nose aids in paddling and provides momentum in weaker waves for high-risk maneuvers like nailing airs. The tail outline maintains width throughout until a slight hip to a round squash tail pod, providing stability, speed, and control. The breaking point in the outline allows for tight pivoting turns.
The bottom contours feature a single to double concave inside a single concave. The deep concave from 24'' back provides lift and speed, while the rail rocker changes from a generous forward concave around the front fins to a deeper, more curvy rail line. The slight Vee behind the fin and off the tail adds to the board's maneuverability. Overall, the Alley Cat is an excellent option for surfers looking for a high-performance shortboard that handles a wide variety of conditions.
