The Rawson Impala-5 takes all of the benefits of the Impala roundtail 2+1, plus the Impala SS Quad, and then adds a turbo boost of speed and drive to create an entirely different playing field for hybrid surfboards. The 5-stage bottom shape is most noticeable in the rear third of the board, highlighted by flat plane/beveled rail panels with a double concave set down the center of the board. This produces more speed, more drive and easier rail to rail turn initiation. The rails are lower volume on the Impala-5 due to the beveled rail panels trimming foam from the bottom of the rail profile. This adds to control at high speed and allows more aggressive turns.
The Rawson Impala-5 comes standard with 5 FCS fusion fin boxes and can be run as a twin, 2+1 (twin plus small trailer), tri or quad.
