ALT - HANK DUDE
Our Hank Dude model is our take on the modern-day mid-length. And no, you don’t need a moustache, Lycra leggings, or an unbuttoned shirt to surf in when jumping onto one of these beauties!
Designed to bridge the gap between shortboards and longboards, the mid-length gives you all the paddle power you need and a new appreciation for drawing classic lines on open faces. Available in three standard mid-length sizes, 6’10 (40.9 liters), 7’2 (43.2 liters) and 7’4 (44.6 liters) it’s really just a case of picking your mark and getting your groove on!
The board features the classic rounded pin tail, beautifully shaped rails and is nice and rigid thanks to the laminated epoxy core. The board comes with a plastic single fin, and you can set up with a pair of side bite fins too so you can ride as a 2 + 1. And don’t forget to get your back foot over the fin to get this baby turning!

IXPE| EVA top deck pad
RYD Softboards come with a soft IXPE or EVA full top deck pad. These pads have been designed with not just comfort in mind but also grip and safety.
Each RYD softboard comes standard with a leash plug, much like a fibreglass or epoxy board so that you can attached a leash to it and hit the waves in safety.
Action Camera Mount
We install a custom FCS compatible plug on all our softboards. This plug is compatible with all generations of fittings for GoPro cameras.
Double| Triple Stringer
Our True and Layback Softboards have double or triple stringers depending on the size of the board. 8 and 9′ boards have triple stringers to ensure strength and durability.
Close Cell EPS
We use high grade EPS foam core with all our boards. These cores are 100% closed cell which means that they have a high level of water repellent properties.
Easy Carry Handle
Our ergonomically designed handle makes it easier to carry your board to and from the water. With its grooved design, your hand will grip the board to allow minimal fatigue while getting to the water’s edge. Great for groms and those with shorter arms who cannot fit boards under their arms.
Be aware not to leave your gear baking in the sun for lengthy periods of time, whether direct or in a closed vehicle. The heat and UV rays will destroy everything over time. Your board (like your skin) will last longer and perform better with protection.
All RYD Soft Boards are guaranteed for 6 months against any defects in materials and workmanship. This does not include damage due to abuse or natural wear and tear. To make a claim, return product and sales receipt to the place of purchase.
