"To me the yellow Sunkist represents being at the beach surfing all day long. Salty, sandy and sun kissed. This board is more performance oriented and because it has more edge the turns are faster and easier to maneuver big waves. It's fast, vibrant and fun."
Soleil wanted a board with smooth rail-to-rail response in punchy / powerful surf, allowing for seamlessly connected turns and in-flow trips to the nose. She wanted to marry this flow with stability, to be able to walk the nose and lock into the pocket for those title-winning nose rides. It was critical that this performance board did not have too much divergence in character from the “Velvet Hour,” so the transition between lengths for wave conditions would not require much adjustment.
The Sunkist simply takes all the elements that you would find in a performance longboard, plus performance rails which are slightly more pinched and a harder trailing edge in the tail, and applies them to a single fin performance hybrid that has the vintage “log look.” Soleil rides a 10” fin in this model which goes nicely with the wider tail, allowing the tail to lock into turns and not skate around too much.
