Surftech Akaba High-Performance Surfboard
With the Surftech Akaba High-Performance Surfboard tucked beneath your arm, you study the water, take note of the amount of time in between sets, and scout out the easiest area to paddle out. It's always fun, yet intimidating to some degree, to surf a new break, but with this quality squashtail short board and your powerful paddling skills, you'll figure out the surf in no time. Thanks to the Akaba's squashtail design, this unique board offers a quick, snappy turn release and ample floatation, making it ideal to use in a wide range of wave conditions between two and eight feet in height.
In case you're worried about whether this board will hold up after numerous rides, don't be, as the boys at Surftech equipped the Akaba with Ultraflx technology for increased durability. Its water-tight, fused-cell EPS core ensures that the Akaba maintains the crisp flex and soft feel that you prefer while ensuring years of life. Plus, you're going to dig its FCS 5-fin setup which offers superb versatility and numerous fin setup options.

This board looks like it might be fun, but where are all the measurements? How thick is it? How wide is it? What is the rocker like? What is the bottom of the board shaped like? Single concave? Double concave out the back?
Also, I'm not sure if the model name of this board is correct because I can't find any information on this board on the internet. Help convince me to buy this board - we want REAL info, not two paragraphs of generic description that could describe any number of boards on the market. Any additional info would be appreciated, thanks!

I bought a 5'11" H-1 model and Twinzer's specs were right on. The board is a little wider than the listed specs, but that is to be expected with the surftech. Fun to ride on chest to head high. Works on smaller stuff, but is not meant to be a groveler.

From what I can figure out, this is the H-1 model.
5'6" - 19.25 - 2.38 thick
5'11" - 19.75.- 2.6 thick
