What the Album Surfboards site says about the Darkness:
‘A nimble, mid length style trim machine. Low, fast rocker. Flows and trims like a dream, while still allowing a loose, carvy feel in the pocket. A great alternative board that’s really versatile. A longboard alternative when the waves are small and weak and you don’t feel like lugging your log out there, but with it’s sleek outline can perform when the waves have some juice as well. A great way to mix it up –from a twin, quad to single, cruise or carve. Catches anything.’
What people are saying about it:
“Generally speaking, in a board like the Darkness, you can surf more forward with easier glide and trim and smooth flow down the line, if you set it up with a big single fin. And you can ride the board with your stance farther back, with more drive and ‘pumpability’ if you set it up as a quad. If you look at the Darkness outline, you can see it’s probably best suited for trimming and gliding with your weight at about the middle point or possible forward. This is because of how narrow the tail is, relative to how wide the board becomes towards the middle. This board is very thick, probably 1/8″ thicker than other comparable boards. This contributes to a lot of ‘on the water’ feel, not ‘down in the water’ feeling.” – Hostvie
