This season Cabrinha have tweaked the Spade in a few important ways. They've narrowed the width a bit to give the Spade's rail more contact with the water. Loading up the rail on a bottom turn or right before an air trick is now much easier.
The Spade also now has a bottom channel right through the tail for lift and speed. Cabrinha has added a 5th fin box to allow for a quad or a thruster fin configuration.
The Spade is an all-round surfboard that is equally comfortable on any sized wave or with any air freestyle manoeuvre.
