35.5 SmoothStar Manta Ray
Is this SmoothStar right for me?
The 35.5″ Manta Ray is suited to surfers that are 6ft or taller (183cm – 193cm). This model has excellent drive and hold through deep drawn out bottom turns. Surfers with weight over 80kg will feel the board hold without sliding out. The deck has the same concave as the 32.5″ & 34″ models. There is extra width on the back tail to accommodate bigger sized feet.
The new 35.5″ Manta Ray is suited to “surf dads” or taller surfers over 6ft (183cm) that have a wider surf stance.
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.
Frequently asked questions
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
Yes absolutely, many people ride the Manta Ray in a skate bowl, however, it just isn’t as common as more adults ride the Manta Ray. Adults tend to approach bowls with a little more fear than groms and younger riders who rip up the bowl in larger numbers.
