“When I started out designing the MOE mid-length range I wanted to have an easy ride and good paddling, while keeping good stability and support. I think this is important because many new surfers often choose boards in this size range and I wanted to cater for all surfers. The bottom is pretty flat with a double concave between your feet, a really good combination for carving turns in a wide board. Rails are not too thick, for sensitivity, and they transition from neutral round forward through round tucked edge to the fin area and low hard behind the fins. The rails are foiled from forward of center toward the tail, for drive through turns and good travel around white water sections.
The fin setup is Thruster/Quad and large size FCS II fins such as large Carver or the Harley Ingleby FCS II set if you like bigger fins. The wide standing area allows the surfer to stay in the sweet spot during the whole ride, even across dead sections. The Moe model is a high performance, carving, mid-length surfboard that is suitable for all levels of surfing.” – Shaper Billy Tolhurst
