The outline of the MIDAS evolved from a few different influences. The tail was inspired by some 80’s twin fins and the wing is positioned right behind the trailing edge of the side fin to create a breakpoint and to pull the tips of the swallow closer together for maneuverability. The wing also creates more width in front of the fins which generates increased speed. The nose is a touch wider than your everyday short board but without an ‘eggy’ feel. The wider nose and tail dimensions reduce the curve in the middle of the board which also helps generate speed.
