PMD A.K.A the PhatMean-D: The PMD is the best small wave board for all-around East Coast conditions. It rides best as a quad, but on a bigger surf day it can be ridden as a thruster. With a full round nose and medium tail, this board can fly on weak, gutless surf. It features a light single concave and low tail rocker. The PMD should be ridden 1”-4” shorter than the traditional shortboard and should be 20”-23” wide depending on the board’s length and the size of the surfer.
