The highs and lows of High Cats

The High Cat by Fineline (Brian Hilbers) is one of my favorite boards to ride. It is perfect for noseriding and classic cutbacks. The V in the tail plus a very nice tail rocker with a deep pivot fin combine for whippy turns and stearable noserides. The “ears” of the board up on the nose are set back near you heal’s for drop and climb control. The nose rocker is subtle to the eye but there is enough to force you to hang ten in order to extend your noserides, this is a good thing! The clear Cat is 10'0 18 5/8 x 23 5/8 x 16 ½ x 3 ¼, the blue Cat is 9'9 18 ½ x 23 ¼ x 16 ¼ x 3 ¼. Both these boards are nasty paddlers and have ample rail line in order for speed and trim.
