The ultimate ode to the classic 80s flat deck thruster design. The Lotus has been specifically crafted to combine all the original design elements that made the 80s thruster a classic while adding a modern twist to reinvigorate this classic design.

The Lotus features a bump flyer, beak nose, low smooth rocker, and flat deck with chimed-down rails - all the hallmarks of the classic 80s thruster design. But we've added a modern twist by tweaking the traditional flat or vee bottom. Keeping a little vee in the nose to prevent catching, we've added a shallow single concave under your chest that blends into an aggressive double concave between the fins, finishing with a flat exit. These changes have replaced a slow, rail-to-rail roll with more lift and speed.

The Lotus surf with instant speed out the gate and a wide range of maneuverability for tight surfing in the pocket. The chimed-down rails add hold and drive, allowing you to push hard through your snaps and carves.

Our most popular model to date, the Lotus will add some retro fun to your quiver and make the day-to-day surf exciting and fun.
