The Second Cousin's attributes make this model suited to a wide variety of surfers.The Second Cousin has slightly less curve in the rocker throughout the tail, and a wider mid-point than it predecessor the Step Cousin which is one of JR's best performing small wave boards.
The added width matched with a flatter rocker enhances the speed and glide feel of the board, the result making a more effortless ride, while not sacrificing performance. By running with a similar depth single concave under the front foot, and using a double concave throughout the tail, this gives the Second Cousin added drive therefore making rail to rail transitions smoother, and more controlled. A medium boxy rail gives the perfect balance of forgiveness and bite.
The second Cousin comes standard with a Square tail, by squaring the tail off, this has extended the rail line about ½ an inch, adding drive, and giving the board the feeling that it surfs longer than it is. We recommend riding this board 2-3 inches shorter than your all round shortboard.
