Gary McNeill FTL Review


What the Gary McNeill site says about the FTL:

‘”For the Love” – a high performance shortboard with a wing swallow tail. Designed to be a great all rounder although better suited in fair to good waves. The wing swallow combo gives great bite and pivot off the tail. Can be ridden in any fin setup and best at sizes from 5’4″ – 7’0″. Inspired by Gary’s dear friend Reg Barton who sponsors a village in Samoa that was devastated by the 2005 tsunami. Gary also donates proceeds from sales to this village.’
