What the Mark Richards website says about the Lone Ranger:
‘My concept with this model was to create a board that fitted between a semi-fish and a standard high-performance tri-fin. A “quiver killer” so you could own one surfboard to ride in surf from 1’ to 6’. Two of my most popular models are the Bushranger and Flying Fish. This board fits between the two, sharing the best characteristics of each.
The area of the board forward of the centre is mid-way between the Bushranger and Flying Fish, resulting in a full pointed nose, giving the board excellent planing speed, paddle power and performance.
- Mid-range nose width and relaxed nose entry rocker for planing speed;
- A single-to-double concave bottom with an accelerated tail rocker for speed and quick rail to rail direction changes;
- A bump wing with the bump positioned slightly forward of the back foot which shortens the rail line and allows for a tight turning radius for the radical moves of modern high-performance surfing;
- The most popular tail is a rounded square which allows for ease of pivoting through tight turns, but custom order options include a round tail and a swallow.
- The Lone Ranger comes exclusively with FCS 2 Tri Fin plugs for a tri fin set up.’
