Product Details

The new 35.5″ Manta Ray is suited to taller surfers over 6ft (183cm) that have a wider surf stance than most.

We’ve made a board that has excellent drive and hold through the deepest bottom turns and tightest top turns. It has a contour deck shape with more width on the tail so you can push down hard through the turn. The front foot area is also wider again for pushing hard for carving driveways or small skate bowls.

The new Manta Ray has new Sky Blue SmoothStar wheels which are 2mm wider and 4mm thicker than SmoothStar Stingray wheels. More rubber connected to the asphalt means the bigger guys have more hold through the turns.

New Extra wide Tail

We've made some modifications to the Manta Ray deck from the deck outline. Although the deck length has shorter with the Thruster D, we have extended the tail making it much wider. Surfers over 6ft tall generally have much larger feet so the width is important to keep the toes and heel on the deck and not hanging off the side. 

Thruster D Technology

The 34.5" Manta Ray model comes with the new SmoothStar Thruster D technology. The Thruster D is the latest in precision engineering that gives surfers the ultimate surf feeling with 12%-15% more hold. It's also lighter and comes with a 5 year warranty

Why is the Manta Ray recommended for surfers over 6 foot?

We recommend the Manta Ray for surfers over 6 foot because it has a much wider wheel base and also a wider surface area for the front foot than any of the other SmoothStar models. This additional width matches the natural surf stance and foot positioning of riders over 6 foot in height.

I ride a Mini Mal / Longboard surfboard, is the Manta Ray the right choice for me?

The Manta Ray is the right choice of board for you but it is important that your surf stance stays the same, irrespective of what size of SmoothStar or surfboard you ride. Your surf stance shouldn't change unless you are walking up and down the surfboard. It is important that we match the SmoothStar to the stance of the surfer rather than the SmoothStar to the surfboard length because it is the correct stance that delivers the most responsive feel
