High-performance full volumed ultimate groveller. This board has been engineered to perform in Mediterranean-style surf or anywhere with little power. The New Barcelona has redefined what you can achieve in moderate surfing conditions.
Following the enormous success of the Original Barcelona the New Barcelona has incorporated Bradley’s love of the smooth curve by slightly rounding the tail area and nose template. A wide nose and tail are combined with a straight rail line give this board extra speed in very small and weak surf. Defined by its short length, the New Barcelona has the ability to do standard maneuvers in small surf. The V/Double concave bottom allows the rail line to be flatter, this allows the board to actually increase speed when turning.
Suitable for surfers who still want to enjoy progressive surfing despite the conditions. A really fun surfboard for those who like to get the most out of extremely average surf. A must for your summer quiver.

V-double concave to flat tail with flip for quicker rail to rail transitions
Lower rocker with nose lift for performance turns
Full rails front and rear. Flatter rail line for increased speed when turning
Wide front and rear template for surface area and speed in gutless waves
Futures or FCS 5 fin set up for performance turns and control. Thrusters are great for turning. Quads are great for generating and maintaining speed
PU construction by Euroglass. The “P” gets its name from both the resin and the foam: polyester resin and the “U” comes from polyurethane foam . PU is the traditional surfboard construction since foam core surfboards were invented. It is still the most widely used construction method today. PU is often incorrectly referred to as “fiberglass” construction – the reason this is incorrect is because the same exact fiberglass cloth is used in both PU and Epoxy construction types, it’s the foam core and resin that soaks into the fiberglass cloth (and foam) that differ. While PU construction is generally slightly heavier and isn’t quite as strong as Epoxy construction, it tends to have a more reliable and predictable feeling whilst surfing. This is due primarily to a slower flex pattern and denser foam than epoxy construction, which basically causes less “surprises” and more predictability while surfing, especially when making hard or sharp turns. PU construction tends to be more naturally conducive to color work, especially translucent resin tints. PU is also a bit less sensitive to water infiltration and heat than epoxy construction.
