The Red Ranga is the love child of the ever popular Ranga and the ultra high performance Delano model.
This all-arounder is quite a bit more user-friendly than the Delano and has become a very versatile, wide-point forward, easy to paddle board that caters to those wanting a more conventional, practical shortboard, without going "full groveler." It suits anyone who fancies more kick and sensitivity off the tail, while catering to “everyday” conditions.
Rocker — Medium entry, Medium Full tail rocker
Bottom Contours — Deep Single to Flat
Rails — A bit beefier and more forgiving than your standard shortboard
Tail — Squash or Round, or even go Baby Swallow
Fin Setup— Thruster
Recommended Technologies— Standard Poly, EPS/Epoxy, Varial or Futureflex
The RedRanga runs a deep single concave just behind the front foot which gradually shallows as it channels water to through the fins and out the tail with a smooth, fuller-nosed outline coming into a tight and progressive tail. The entry rocker is a bit more relaxed which helps with paddling and seemlessly transitions into a semi-staged "flatter" center rocker for planing speed and gradually accelerates into more lifted tail.
