SALT GYPSY – DUSTY RETRO 8’6” Merlot – PU
About Salt Gypsy
With the Salt Gypsy Dusty Retro Longboard you will feel like riding in an old Cadillac… You know how the old classic cars just seem to glide and almost float along the road? Well, that’s exactly the feel on offer with the Salt Gypsy Dusty Retro Longboard.
The Dusty is by no means a performance Longboard, this board is about getting onto waves really early, setting the line, and then feeling the trim as you cruise down the line. Optimum conditions are small to medium size waves, and it will really feel at home on a long point wave.
*All Salt Gypsy surfboards were tested and designed with appropriate dimensions and volume allocations to suit female surfers so they can get the most out of every wave – they also come in a 100% stretch cotton dust jacket ensuring that zero plastic is used in the packaging of these surfboards.

|Construction||Polyester – PUPolyester or PU construction uses traditional materials and laminating techniques to produce a strong, reliable surfboard with high-quality finishes. All polyester boards are CNC milled from the shapers files and laminated by hand using quality components such as Hexcel fiberglass, Silmar resin and Bennett foam.
For years traditional polyester boards have been at the forefront of performance surfing. These boards feature a progressive flex pattern controlled by a high-grade timber stringer and feel very reliable under your feet. Polyester construction will perform in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.
