‘Ultimate high performance noserider! This is definitely the most loved and sought after model in Donalds range. Able to surf anything from one foot slop to overhead barrels, the In The Pink is definitely THE one longboard you must own. Perfect for the rider looking to own one longboard, or someone who is looking to become more accustomed to the nose, the In The Pink will have you loving your surfing again.’

What people are saying about it:

I had always wanted to try this board and up to this day I had never had the chance to ride a Takayama board. I see these things out surfing all the time and they look like really good boards so I was definitely stoked to finally have my hands on it. Paddling into waves was a cinch…I have to give a lot of credit to the flatter rocker…you don’t feel like the board is bogging and pushing water up at the nose. The epoxy seemed like it floated a bit better than a traditional PU board and that helped with wave catching as well.” – surfboardshack.com

Donald’s ultimate high-performance noserider, the In The Pink is a modernized, performance version of the NR-2. 60/40 rails and a noserider style rocker, squaretail. Able to handle anything from ankle to overhead barrels.” – Mitch’s Surf Shop

You can take an In The Pink on larger surf, but it does have a wider, more turned down nose than an Arrow performance model. It’s a great board and lots of fun will be had on it whether it’s the fiberglass model or the epoxy model.” – user GoingAdrift on Reddit

This is the modern version of the NR2. It has a 2+1 fin set up, 60/40 rail and harder edge towards the tail. These features allow the board turning and noseriding capabilities to really shine.” – reviewsurfboards.com

This board catches waves almost on it’s own, and besides the fact that it’s a noseriding machine, I was very surprised at how well it turns and handles overhead waves also. I was surfing trees and publics on O’ahu, and my friend who shapes for local motion borrowed it and was very impressed. Can’t go wrong with that board.” – user Kava on reviewsurfboards.com
