Butter Knife Design
The Nature Flex Butter Knife with its classic outlines, perfect performance longboard rockers, and well-thought-out volumes is suitable for all abilities. Surfers get to ride these as single fins in the smaller conditions and discover their nose-riding potential.
And when it gets a bit punchier, you can just slip in the side bites and you have a perfect riding board for just about all conditions. As a thruster, a Butter Knife is balanced and predictable.
Pop in a quad setup and use a bucketload of speed and increased bite to your advantage.
