The Matador is designed to surf tight in the pocket. Combining elements of the Polyphonic, with a slightly wider nose and pulled in swallow tail, this board proves to be a fast, excellent paddler.
The Matador is a fairly versatile board but really works best in anything from thigh-high to slightly overhead with good shape. Don't be afraid to take it out when it is a little mushy however since the wider nose makes paddling a breeze and can help coast through slower sections.
