Surfboards by Donald Takayama Classic Stepdeck Review

What the Surfboards by Donald Takayama site says about the Classic Stepdeck:

‘One of 60’s Donald Takayama’s original models. Double Stringer foam t-band for a unique flex pattern while walking the nose or hotdogging off the tail. Step Deck allows for a lighter weight nose (thinner nose) to help lighten up for swing weight off the tail and while increasing nose rocker for steeper sections. Pulled in square tail with a RLB (rake style) fin for ultimate retro performance off the tail. Probably one of the easiest boards to noseride in the retro lineup.’
