Vessel Darkhorse Performance Hybrid Review ft Beau Young

The Vessel Dark Horse is a performance shortboard with a wider profile and tailored for smaller days or for surfers who simply want a little more paddle power.

So if you are looking for a versatile shortboard then the Vessel Dark Horse is great option with a generous single concave which flows from the nose to a slight double through the fins and tail, allowing drive and acceleration through bottom turns and flow between rail-to-rail carves.

The Dark Horse features a squash tail for quicker release, responsiveness and sharper turns. The tail along with its slightly wider body increases lift and reduces drag making it easier to plane and maintain and increase speed.

The Dark Horse is constructed with a PU Bennet Blank, 4 and 6 ounce cloth and Innegra tail offering great strength and flex properties. The C-Flex carbon strip on the bottom of the board helps control torque and flex provide more power for your turns.

If you’re after a fun, super responsive all-round shortboard, then the Dark Horse is it!
