The Ill by Roberts: He took the Dill and added a wider nose and a touch of width to the tail block. He made those changes to give this hi-performance board the ability to work better in smaller surf and still keep the board’s high performance feeling in good waves. The Ill features a moderate rocker with flip at the ends. Medium rail at the center with tapered rails at the nose and tail. Tri fin setup is standard.

The Ill is a modern re-incarnation of high performance boards that used to be worthless, very narrow ranged and only for the top 1% of surfers in the world. How do you take that performance level and broaden it out both in surf conditions and ability levels down to solid intermediate surfers? The nose is slightly wider and then an extra 1/8” of width is carried back to a slight bump squash tail out the back. This gives the board easier paddling, a straighter outline thru the center for more drive and a nice pivot off the top. It still retains it’s lightning fast rail to rail response and limitless fit in the bowl, all the while grabbing more waves and opening the doors to this level of performance for many more surfers. Can you grovel on this board or get it as your first shortboard? No. Roberts has broadened the range, but not that far at the expense of loosing top end maneuverability and speed.

Order The Ill 1 inch shorter, 1/8” wider and in the same thickness as your standard hi-performance short board.
