Chris from Wavescapes has sent me the info on our board. The board is a 5'6 retro egg shape with a wooden single fin. The boards are all hand made by Clayton surf, one of SA's leading surfboard craftsman.
I Googled some info on the shape: The Egg is typically a small hybrid board that is under six feet (about 1.83 meters) long. It has a round tail shape and a rounded longboard profile.
The Egg surfboard is used with smaller waves and ridden with any fin set up. It is not designed for tricks and high performance, the Egg is often called the 'fun board', because it is primarily designed for having a good time on the waves. therefore, it is generally the best choice for beginners. So right for our Swanling!
