Planted heavily in the design of the Fletcher Four-fin, the 2x4 has been influenced by the sword and the Mr. Buzz models. It has a huge range of surfing potential in average to unreal wave conditions and has found it’s home anywhere where hauling ass is a necessity.
The 2 x 4 features similar characteristics to what you would find in Fletcher Four-fin but double concaves in the tail allowing for a destabilized rear end for fast rail to rail transitions. It comes default with a 2” pug for a subtly wider nose outline to increase paddle power and stability up front yet still provide a very familiar and effective rail line.
A 5-fin convertible option allows the 2x4 to be used as a daily driver tri-fin design in most all conditions. Swapping over to a quad allows for more rail engagement when pushing hard off that back foot while driving down screaming walls and waves with tons of juice.
Works best for those looking for an all around performance board with the inherent speed and quickness a quad offers but with more stability and control in punchier and larger surf where you find your normal board starting to redline.
Can be sized to serve as an excellent step up board coming from Buzz series daily drivers as well as a reliable travel board, or the upper end of your 2 board quiver.
