Rockers are continuous and concaves are singles – just like the shank, but the rockstar also has a small amount of double through the fins to give you back some drive when working with the belly channels. Deck line and rails again are that of the shank just with more volume through the very centre of the board meaning maximum foam is packed into this performance fish.
