If you are looking for a good wave board, bigger wave board, or a do it all exploration and adventure board the Happy Traveler is it! Proven in conditions around the world and in some of the most dreamy and serious surf, the Traveler is the one board travel quiver you’ll need for all your most memorable experiences ahead.  The Happy Traveler takes the proven rocker curve of the Happy and tunes it for surf where a step-up is desirable due to size, power, or quality of waves.

In pumping surf, you need to be able to control and harness speed rather than merely create it. The Traveler’s decreased concave between the fins, straighter pulled in outline in the back third, and leading fin’s placement closer to the rail optimize hold and control in quality surf. This allows you to surf with more confidence and freedom as you are more connected to and seated in the wave face. When all the work is done, you’ll be thinking less and feeling more as you surf some of the best waves of your life.

When the waves are good you want to get as many as you can as well as have the confidence to get in over the ledge! The Happy Traveler maximizes your paddling power and ability to catch waves with more thickness carried in the forward deck and rail, and a fuller outline in the front third of the board. When the opportunity arises, you can be sure these same characteristics make the board perform exceptionally well in the barrel.

If the swell drops, the Happy rocker still gets the job done and proves this board to be the single board you need in your quiver.

The Traveler comes standard with a round pin and can be set up and ridden as a thruster or quad.
