Since George Humphreys’ is relatively new to the Stealth Team, it took us a while to develop a board for him to ride. The brief was pretty simple. “Thin with big nose bulbs”. We also knew it needed to handle mutant wedges and XL slabs. We’ve created exactly that in the “El Gringo”.
The El Gringo NRG has the Exert Construction. This consists of a single stringer combined with deck and slick link mesh. This is the most flexible of all the pro model boards. George rides this model while chasing slabs through South Western Australia, as it allows him to wrangle big, heavy, cold water waves. It is ideal for anyone else who surfs high performance waves in cooler water locations.
George is 5'10 and 75kg. He rides this model in 41.5"
