Hi Beau, great Review of a nice board with a long heritage. Can you tell us something about the difference between Mana 8.10 GTW from 2017 and the new Mana 2021? thx

Thanks for the comment Kurt. Firstly, the 2021 Mana has a slightly wider outline which carries through the tail – so expect more stability and width when stepping back to turn the board. The nose rocker has been increased slightly whilst the tail rocker has been flattened to increase glide. The board now has the option for a quad fin set up as well as the 2+1. Also, it’s a much bigger board all around with extra width, thickness and volume. Hope that helps!

Hey DJ. The Mad Dog range is designed for a more high performance ride with more rocker and a different distribution of volume. This makes the board more technical to use in the waves and is best suited to riders wanting to push their surfing limits. The Mana could be touted as the ‘cruiser big brother’ to the 9’0 Mad Dog x32 and riders would be looking for a more gentler, easier to use board for more beginner riders. Hope this helps.
